Map of downtown Portland
Swerve into the bike lanes to get an essential introduction to Oregon's largest city. Ride along the waterfront of Old Town, past buildings from the 19th and early 20th centuries, and then turn your handlebars downtown, along the Willamette River and through South Park Blocks.
Begin on 2nd Street and make your way to Tom McCall Waterfront Park, and then turn to Burnside to see Erickson's Saloon, established in 1895. See the Merchant Block in Japantown before rolling through the gates of Chinatown and into the Pearl District—viewing shops and restaurants like the Bridgeport Brewery and Nossa Familia Coffee Roasters. Ride through Jamison Square, past Powell's City of Books, Henry Weinhard's 140-year-old brewery, Zoobomb Bike Pile, and even the food carts at 9th and Alder.
South Park Blocks has been called Portland's “extended family room” and is seen by many as the heart of the city's cultural life. Pedal into this 12-block park, through Oregon's largest university—Portland State University—and then downhill, back toward the Willamette River, the lifeblood of the city. Ride downriver on paths free of cars, see the famous Hawthorne Bridge, and end right back where you started.
