Què faràs?

Beautiful bikes, beautiful rides, and all our neighborhood secrets. On our tours we'll smell the roses, taste the doughnuts, ride across the bridges, and along the rivers; it's the best way to experience the diversity of culture, art, poetry, nature, parks and neighborhoods in Portland. We believe it's all about the bike ride! Our approach is to spend more time riding, but lots of time stopping at gardens, art collectives, sculptures and beaches. We start in the inner Eastside neighborhoods, where we will fit you for an easy-to-ride bike and helmet, ready for a sweet 9-11 mile ride. You'll visit a total of five of the city's quadrants, ride over two bridges, and along the Willamette River. We'll visit a number of almost-secret beaches, read poetry written in the sidewalks and rocks, see public art of every shape, color and texture. And have you tried some of the city's best doughnuts? (And no, we don't mean Voodoo.) Portland is not just a city of seamless bicycle infrastructure and friendly relations between cyclists and motorists, but also a city of poets. Literally and figuratively, our bike ride is a poem--a series of poems--to our city. We'll read poetry written on murals, in sidewalks, and carved in rocks. There is, too, the whirling poetry of wheels on pavement, the sweet suspension of effort that is cycling on the quiet streets and pathways in this place we love.

Els teus amfitrions

I'm Sarah Gilbert, co-founder of Around Portland Tours and together with partners and guides Edwin, Madi, Jonathan, Jeri and Evan will host the experiences. See what we do on Instagram: @aroundportlandtours I'm a published writer of essays and professional storyteller, and each of the narratives around which our tours are based was a collaboration between us, writers and route designers, as a movable narrative, what we call place-based storytelling. When we create a ride, it is one we as story creators develop out of the places we know intimately and love so well we are bursting to share them; and also includes elements that together make up not just the story of Portland, but also the beauty of biking in what one guest called "the most pleasant urban cycling experience" there is.

On aniràs?

We start at our shop at Around Portland Tours, and fit you for the bicycle & helmet perfect for you. We head into a pretty residential neighborhood, to our favorite rose garden, into an art-heavy industrial district, across the sexy Tilikum Bridge, and onto Portland's waterfront (with a quick donut stop if you like). From there, it's a visit to Old Town/Chinatown, and into the Pearl District, before we head over another bridge back to our shop.

Més suggeriments

Portland mornings are cool -- bring layers! We have raingear to borrow; or (Sept - June) bring your favorite rainjacket. We wear everyday clothes to ride our bikes, but it's easier in comfortable footwear, with no long skirts or wide legged pants. Minimal bike experience is ok; none, is not.
