With warmer than usual weather for this time of year, it’ll be a great weekend for a ride to some awesome Portland events. Check out our guide of where to ride bikes in Portland this weekend:
2020 NW Coffee Beer Invitational
Where: Goose Hollow Inn 1927 SW Jefferson St
When: 12pm – 7pm, Saturday 1/25
A beautiful marriage of Portland’s two favorite beverages: Beer and Coffee! Twenty brewers compete to see who can make the best combo. A short 15 minute ride from our shop through downtown to The Goose Hollow Inn. A Portland institution run by Bud Clark before he became Mayor. (His wife, Sigrid, took over during his two terms) They claim to have the best Reuben on the planet, and you’ll find no argument from me.
Tickets are $25 and includes a souvenir glass and 10(!) taster tickets.
Recommended Bike: Multi-speed. A single speed should also be fine, but there is a few short/steep hills in the Goose Hollow neighborhood, so it’s nice to have gears.
Where: Portland Mercado 7238 SE Foster
When: 12pm – 7:30pm, Saturday 1/25
The forecast tomorrow is the definition of Soup Weather, so why not try some Latinoamerican sopas! The Portland Mercado is a community focused launching pad for local entrepreneurs, a hub for Latino Culture, and home to one of, if not the best, food cart pods in Portland.
The quickest bike friendly route takes you across the Hawthorne Bridge, through Ladd’s Addition, on to the Clinton, then Woodward Neighborhood Greenways. Hang a right on 72nd down to Foster, and look for the brightly colored Mercado on the south side of the street. For a longer scenic route, take the Spring water trail down to Johnson Creek and head North on 72nd. If you’re feeling adventurous on the way back, bike to the top Mt Tabor for beautiful views of the city.
Recommended Bike: Road Bike or E-Bike
Where: Starts at Coffee Shop on Ladd’s Circle. Ends at ???
When: Meets at 11am, Rides out at 11:30 on Sunday 1/26
Leave the route planning to the experts and join this 15 years running group ride. A great way to make bike friends while checking out Portland palm trees and evergreens.
Recommended Bike: Multi-Speed
