Bike In, Bike Out at McMenamins Grand Lodge
McMenamins is an iconic family-owned Pacific Northwest hospitality group known for pioneering the craft beer movement, transforming abandoned buildings into travel destinations and creating 52 community spaces – pubs, movie theaters, concert venues and more – across Oregon and Washington.
They’re also proud participants in Travel Oregon’s Bike Friendly Business program, which aims to enhance the Oregon biking experience for visitors and Oregonians alike. Bike-friendly Oregon hotels include: Edgefield, Grand Lodge, Hotel Oregon, Kennedy School and Old St. Francis School.
The historic Grand Lodge, located in Forest Grove, provides cyclists access to two scenic routes in the area: Henry Hagg Lake Trail and the Tualatin Valley Scenic Bikeway & Historic Helvetica Loop. It’s close to plenty of wineries just off of the Sip 47 Wine Route, and a number of residential roadways in Forest Grove also lend their way to customizable routes for riders.
After a long day of riding, bikers can rest and recharge at the Grand Lodge, which offers amenities including:
- A heated saltwater soaking pool perfect for soothing ached muscles.
- An array of services at Ruby’s Spa, including massages and foot therapy. Coming this June, the spa will feature a Cyclists Massage: a combination of rigorous massage techniques and an herbal liniment to target the specific muscle groups cyclists use most.
- Comfortable guestrooms with cotton bathrobes.
- Four casual dining and drinking spots on the sprawling property — a restaurant and three bars serving house-made ales, cider, cocktails, coffee and wine.
- A first-run movie theater.
- Disc golf.
- A vinyl record-themed bar.
- Eclectic local artwork on display.
McMenamins hotels also provide dry, safe bicycle storage, bike parking, a place for bikers to replenish their water, and complimentary Wi-Fi.
