How to Get Around Portland by Bike

If you want to get around Portland like the locals do – rent a bike! One of the most bike friendly cities in the country, Portland has more than 200 miles of bikeways, which are bicycle lanes, boulevards, and multi-use trails. More than half of Portland residents own a bicycle and an estimated 5% of all trips in the city are taken on bikes.

Don’t want to ride all the way across town? The public transportation system in Portland is also bike accessible. All buses, MAX lightrail trains and Portland streetcars allow you to bring your bike with you. Read about how to load your bike on the TriMet website.

Portland bicycle maps clearly show outlined bike routes in and around the city. Maps for touring the coast and the gorge are also available online.
