Portland has a new iconic mural!

You can see it now and forever outside Pedal Bike Tours at 133 SW 2nd Avenue.


According to the League of American Bicyclists, Portland is the most bicycle friendly large city in the United States, and here at Pedal Bike Tours we think that’s something worth celebrating… in a BIG way.

We’ve just put the final touches on a new 4-story mural in the heart of our Old Town neighborhood. Now tourists coming in for a sightseeing tour at Pedal, visiting the Saturday Market or enjoying some Stumptown Coffee or Voodoo Donuts around the corner, can experience Portland’s love of bikes, and have yet another great photo opportunity. And for locals… we can revel in the pride of a 6% bicycle commuter rate, and always push the bar higher… or BIGGER.

New Pedal Bike Tour – Forest Park Ride

Explore The Forest in The Heart of Portland

Portland, OR (July 19, 2011) Pedal Bicycle Tours, (Tripadvisor’s #1 ranked tour company in Portland)launches a new Portland bike tour, the Forest Park Ride. This exhilarating tour explores the nation’s largest urban wilderness park, for the ultimate Oregon combination of primeval forest and vibrant city.

“This ride appeals to both casual riders who want to enjoy the greenery and solitude of the park without a long drive to the mountains, as well as more aggressive riders looking to get a good workout on the gravel and dirt road,” says Todd Roll, Pedal Bike Tours owner and biker-in-chief.

One of Pedal’s friendly and knowledgeable guides drives up to 8 guests the short distance into the largest wilderness city park in the country- Forest Park, a 5,000 acre jungle paradise minutes from downtown. Starting at just over 600 feet of elevation, guests ride the rolling 11 mile Leif Erikson forest road through green tunnels of towering trees and verdant glades, alongside moss and fern covered cliffs and lush ravines ending at the park entrance at 300 feet of elevation.

Emerging from the forest and onto pavement, guests glide 4 miles down through the mansions of the West Hills into the shopping districts of NW 23rd and the Pearl before ending up back at Pedal headquarters in Old Town.

This tour runs twice daily, includes bike, helmet, and shuttle to the trail head and costs $49 per person.
