With the arrival of spring, people everywhere are sawing cars in half or affixing an extra warm-weather wheel to the family unicycle. Quench summertime thirst for two-wheeled action with today's deal: for $19, you get a two-hour River City Bridge bike tour from Portland Bicycle Tours, a $40 value. Bicycles, locks, and helmets are provided for those who forget their own or normally use imaginary equipment.
Rolling out bikes outfitted with rocket launchers and overdrive, Portland Bicycle Tours is the city’s oldest bike-tour company with experienced guides who prefer bipedals to bipeds and know the area like the back of a hand doubling as an unsanctioned cheat sheet. Regardless of your shape, size, or time dimension, a winsome fleet of two-wheeled rubber burners is gearing up to guide riders. During the River City Bridge Tour, pedal through the sound barrier, causing windows to smash all along the East Bank. There will be a quick pause at the bridge for some scenic snapshots and carefree bungee bicycling. The tour continues across the Willamette River to the roads of West Side and Old Town, where public art displays, parks, and swaying trees compete for the attention of your bucking mechanical beast.
Aside from a passion for human power over gas power, Portland Bicycle Tours bares its green soul through the usage of recycled bikes, materials, and tour guides made from old tour guides. The casually paced tour is welcoming to cyclists of all aptitudes. Since you probably won't get tired, feel free to reward your bike for its hard work and let it ride you for a stretch of the journey. Should the baby clouds overhead drool on your parade, free rain gear is available for use during the tour.
- We had a great time this weekend pedaling around Portland on one of their rented bikes. Owner of the shop made special arrangements so that we could stay out late. They helped us plan a route and gave us free loaner maps and good advice. – jason, Google Maps
