In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

Join us on a curated exploration of alleys in Portland’s Arbor Lodge, Kenton, Portsmouth & University Park neighborhoods! 9 miles, moderate pace. We’ll attempt to not drop anyone, but no promises if you get a flat.
This year’s alley ride is more off-road than last year’s, so come prepared for gravel and dirt – you won’t necessarily need a mountain bike, but touring tires or knobbies are going to be better than skinny ones.
Bring lights and a picnic for after the ride; end spot is also near a grocery store.
Meet: 5:30 pm, Leave around 6:00 pm!
