Rookie Ride or Back in the Saddle Again – Hawthorne District and Inner East Side


Are you a new bicycle owner or dusting off an old bike and wanting to ride? Well, we have rides! We’ll do the work, you just show up and we’ll help you Take Life by the Handlebars! Requirements: a bicycle and a helmet (more details at under Rides/Ride Ratings, Requirements, and Tips). Our solemn pledge is to leave no rider behind.

Leaves at 9:30 from Skidmore Fountain, SW 1st and Ankeny. Get a good look at some of Portland’s quintessential history and attributes in one short bicycle ride. Starting in the downtown area we’ll head east into the Hawthorne neighborhood then use the Burnside Bridge to return to town. Isn’t Voodoo Donuts nearby?? ;-) Pace 8-12 mph modified appropriately for the riders who participate.

Please read the Covid protocols before attending the ride.
