This is a fun informative & informal overview of Portland. We are cyclists & found it very low effort. The French pastry shop was a delightful exclamation point! We were provided helmets & useable bikes& lots of Portland history. I loved riding through various neighborhoods. Be sure to tip!

Excellent guide and knowledgeable of the history that was all around us. Bikes are well maintained and the bike tour provided water as well as French pastries while touring. Take advantage of this tour, we’ll worth it.

Our guide was very well connected to the tales of the underworld and historic spooky facts of old Portland.
