For the 3-day weekend we’ve put up 3 new films in the Rubber To The Road Series. Road, Mountain, & City, something for everyone.
There’s no better way to explore Portland than by bike and this casual route will show off all the best of this great city. This is a perfect route for beginners or for a cruise with friends. There’s plenty of places along the way to eat and drink or for great photos. RCB staffer Andrew Baxter reveals the route aboard Momentum Street, one of the most popular bicycles from the River City Bicycles Outlet store.
The heart of this ride is a flat 12-mile lap around Sauvie Island, home to farm fields and wildlife preserves, and you’ll discover incredible views throughout. It’s a straight shot out of town along Highway 30 to get to the island and back making this an ideal road ride for training or just riding fast with friends.
L.L. Stub Stewart
L. L. “Stub” Stewart Memorial State Park is a 1,654-acre Oregon state park located 34 miles west of Portland. It’s a quick trip by car and the park offers just under 8 miles of mountain bike trails for all skill levels along with sites for picnicking, camping, cabin rentals, and access to the paved Banks-Vernonia trail. Purpose-built cross-country trails can be linked together for a nearly endless flow of riding and there’s two ferried trails designed to test riders with berms, jumps, drops, trail gaps, and a wallride. Bring a picnic and enjoy great views from the Hilltop Day Use Area in between or after runs.
