Starting at the site of the iconic Portland Saturday Market, this short route packs a lot of sightseeing into a short ride. Pedal under the Broadway and Steel bridges before heading west into Portland’s Pearl district. You’ll pass coffee shops, fine dining, and shopping, as you head toward the picturesque West hills. After a brief and pleasant climb on a wooded bike path, you will arrive in Washington Park, site of the Portland International Rose Test Garden, and the Japanese Garden. You will return to downtown Portland via the bustling hub of Pioneer Courthouse square, riding through Tom McCall Waterfront Park before arriving back at the Saturday Market.
You begin this route at the storied Lloyd shopping center, riding north through the tree-lined neighborhoods of Irvington and Sabin before arriving at the hip Alberta Arts neighborhood. Alberta street boasts a wealth of not only art galleries, but also shopping, restaurants, cafes, bars, and of course, food carts. Start your ride hungry, because you’ll be riding past Portland favorites like Salt and Straw, Pine State Biscuits, Pok Pok, and the Bye and Bye on this route. Spend as much or as little time as you like exploring Alberta Street, before heading south through some of Portland’s most charming neighborhoods to end your ride back at the Lloyd Center.
