About -Portland Bicycling Club


The Club with Rides Every Day of the Week

The Portland Bicycling Club (formerly the Portland Wheelmen Touring Club) was founded in 1971 to promote cycling.

Boasting nearly 500 members, the primary focus of the club is recreational riding with up to two dozen rides being offered on a weekly basis, including rides every day of the year and many evenings. Rides are listed on the online calendar. Area bike shops receive informational brochures.

We are a Non-Profit 501(C)3 organization, supporting safe cycling and programs for youth.


Portland Bicycling Club welcomes riders of all abilities. The annual membership includes a monthly newsletter, discounts at area bike shops, access to the club’s Ride With GPS membership, and is a great way to network with cyclists in the area. To join, register online, or print out this Membership Form, complete it, and mail it in.

We welcome all bicycle riders regardless of race, color, religion, gender, gender expression, age, national origin, disability, marital status, or sexual orientation.

Club and Board Meetings

Our club meeting is held the first Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at St. Matthew’s Anglican Church, 11100 NE Skidmore St., Portland. Map. We have been meeting via Zoom during the pandemic, but in person meetings have resumed. Check out the ride calendar on the first Thursday of the month to see what program is scheduled for the meeting. We typically do not have club meetings in February (because of our awards banquet) and in August (because of our annual picnic). Board meetings are held via Zoom on the third Wednesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. The Zoom link may be found on the ride calendar.
