Pedal Rolls Out Portland Pot Tour

A new form of tourism is sparking up in Oregon, and Pedal Bike Tours is leading the way – marijuana tours.

With recreational marijuana now legal in the state, Pedal Bike Tours is giving guests the chance to pull back the curtain on Oregon’s thriving marijuana industry with the launch of the state’s first cannabis-centered tour, the Portland Pot Tour.

Did you know hemp was one of the Willamette Valley’s first commercial crops? The Portland Pot Tour covers how Oregon’s fortunes have long been tied to the cannabis plant, bringing us up to legalization today. So in addition to the fascinating history, riders on the tour will learn the current laws for purchasing and consuming cannabis products, as well as get direct access to some of the finest pot available – and we’ll do it all by bike!

“People are curious about legal weed, and we’re excited to show them what’s happening,” says Pedal Bike Tours owner Todd Roll. “Who knows if this will be the state’s newest tourism draw, but either way, this ride will be pure fun.”

The relaxed 9-mile ride takes riders to some favorite dispensaries, like Canabliss and Gras, as well as legendary head shops like Third Eye Shoppe and Mellow Mood. Guests can browse and shop for the finest locally-grown and organic strains, hand-blown art glass and carved wooden pipes. The tour also includes delicious “pairings” with a couple munchy stops, including ice cream (yes: vegan options are available).

Prices include a bike, helmet, guided tour, food and a joint of local marijuana at the end of the tour ($69). Riders will not consume marijuana on the tour itself, but are welcome to purchase products for later.

Date: Daily
Time: 3:00PM to 6:00PM
Where: starting at Pedal Bike Tours, 133 SW 2nd Avenue

We hope you can join us for this one-of-a-kind bike tour!

BikeCraft Brings Solidarity and Support to Local Bikey Businesses, Bike Community

Here we are once again…early December, cold, wet, and…..happy! Why? Because this weekend is BikeCraft, the awesome craft fair that showcases all kinds of unique bike accessories and bike themed gifts and gear. And it’s all local.

Not only is BikeCraft a great place to shop for fun stuff, but it is also an opportunity for bike businesses and enthusiasts to show support for our biking community. Biking is fun, but it is also a challenging commitment for many. It’s not easy biking in the rain, in the cold or against the blustery winter winds. And then there’s the dark, the cars, and the all those other things that can make riding hazardous. So it’s good to know that there is a whole community of cyclists supporting each other in their passions. We’re happy to be part of it!

Wednesday Coffee and Donuts- And Something Else To Celebrate

What a beautiful day on the Hawthorne Bridge!  Bright sunshine greeted us, along with even more commuters than usual.  Yesterday’s election coupled with the brilliant weather brought people out in droves.  Many thankful and joyous riders stopped to have a cup, a donut and a chat with us.  Thanks to all who stopped and enjoyed the morning with us!

And, actually we have a question for you guys. We’re currently looking at integrating coffee more into our tours or at the shop. Would you prefer if we brew it ourselves using something like this, or make a quick stop to a Stumptown on the way?


Scott communing with some happy donut eaters.


Join us tomorrow from 7:45-9:30 on the Broadway bridge!
