Pedal Portland is the ultimate guide for riding like a local.

Portland is beautiful, and the ever-expanding bike infrastructure makes for safe and pleasant riding. And it is a city full of bicyclists: 40 percent of residents bike recreationally and nearly 10 percent commute daily on bike. No wonder Bicycling magazine regularly names it one of the top cities to bike in America!

Pedal Portland celebrates the city's passion for pedaling in an accessible, fun, and family-friendly way with rides that explore the most interesting parts of the city, from north to northwest to northeast, southwest to southeast, and the surrounding areas like Beaverton and Vancouver. The rides are accessible to anyone with a bike and range from eight to twelve miles but can be shortened by taking advantage of the city's bike-friendly public transportation. Each route features a scavenger hunt that highlights the quirky and interesting sites along the way and includes tips on where to eat, drink, and stop to appreciate the view.

My wife and I were planning a bicycle trip to Portland. Of all the books, this one was the most thorough and enjoyable. It has detailed maps and stops that are easy to put into a GPS. The rides are clustered by neighborhood and also include the surrounding area. A great way to explore the town and plan some great rides.
