Four Portland friends and biking enthusiasts enjoy a two-wheeled good time.
Building on Portland’s status as the Bicycle Capital of the U.S., four friends turn a weekend getaway into a two-wheeled adventure. From the heart of downtown — Pioneer Square — they board the MAX Blue Line train and head to the end of the line in Hillsboro. Riding west for 14 miles, they take a 9-mile spin around scenic Hagg Lake before a short tour to Tree-to-Tree Adventure Park for some high-wire, high-adrenaline action. A 10-mile return ride ends with a relaxing evening at McMenamins Grand Lodge in Forest Grove, complete with restorative pints, a hot soak, dinner and a movie. The riders fuel up with a delicious breakfast at Maggie’s Buns before heading back to the MAX via the tree-lined Pacific University campus.
