Our Mechanics’ favorite places to ride in Portland
By Britt Appleton, Social Media Specialist
EVAN. Holiday Bike Drive Production Coordinator/Service Coordinator/Mechanic. Evan, a jokester, says he’s lived here too long to ride his bike. Truthfully, he prefers to stay in his neighborhood, Northeast. But, like everyone else, he loves a good Zoobomb.
TIMTIM. Mechanic. On Sunday mornings, TimTim likes to pack a backpack full of snacks, grab his favorite handbuilt bike, and ride to the bike polo court at Alberta Park where he plays bike polo all day and into the evening with his friends.
PATRICK. Service Manager. It’s no secret around the Community Cycling Center that Patrick loves riding up steep hills on heavy bikes. He even co-organized this year’s Heavy Hill Climb during Pedalpalooza. So, unsurprisingly, his favorite ride in Portland is up to Pittock mansion. It’s 12-25 minutes of painful climb, followed by a great view. He recommends it as an evening ride, because in the morning you breathe too much exhaust. Click here to see Patrick’s map of the ride.
