As anyone who's ever rolled two wheels into the City of Roses knows, biking is an undeniable part of Portland's identity. So what better way to explore a city celebrated for its green parkways, bike culture, and one-of-a-kind geography?

Your guide to the area's best routes is avid cyclist and bike commuter Owen Wozniak, a Portland resident and former researcher for the city's bicycle infrastructure. Wozniak's done his homework to bring you Biking Portland: 55 Rides from the Willamette Valley to Vancouver, offering 55 must-bike routes from downtown Portland along the river, into the greenways of the Tualatin basin, through the Clackamas countryside, and across the Columbia to destinations like Cedar Creek and Cape Horn.

Features include a detailed map for each route, 75 photographs, a keying of each ride by type - residential, urban, rural, non-motorized and public transit directions to the start of all 55 routes in addition to standard driving directions. Each cycling route features turn-by-turn descriptions, mileage logs, photos, maps, and elevation profiles, while sidebars throughout the guide showcase Portland's rich biking heritage with fascinating anecdotes. Rides range across skill levels with a balance between easy, moderate, and strenuous here you'll find routes for families, Portland newcomers, and seasoned Oregon road warriors.
