  3. The Portland peninsula bills itself as the “Gateway to nature.” What many Portlanders consider to be one of the furthest, tumbleweed-laden, lawless outposts of the Rose City, is in reality a fine place to get a little fresh air via bicycle. From the bluffs of Willamette Boulevard to the serene Smith and Bybee lakes, there’s a lot to appreciate on this 19 mile bike ride around North Portland.

  5. The classic 46 mile round trip ride from the Lewis and Clark State Recreation Site in Troutdale to the summit of the Larch Mountain Crater is not a casual Sunday leg stretch. The ride is a showcase for the best the Northwest has to offer; but the penance for its many rewards is 3500 feet of climbing.

  6. This 9 mile out and back ride along a restored section of the Historic Columbia River Highway makes for a great weekend outing with the family. The views of the Gorge are almost constant and always breathtaking.
