Moving to Portland ORMartin

Hello Portlandites,

I am moving to the Portland area from the east coast in August. I race in the expert category mtb here in New England and dabble in crits etc. as training. I will be visiting Portland in early July to find a place to live and would like to get a couple of road rides in while I'm there. Does anyone know of any club rides that will let me ride with them? Also, I'll need to rent a road bike to ride – any suggestions on a good shop that rents decent bikes? One last thing, can someone point me to a good club or team that is active both on and off road? Thanks!

The Portland Wheelmen Touring Club has lots rides. Check out their web site

I don't know who rents road bikes, but you should try the Bike Gallery (5 locations around town)

Best road bike shop in Portland is En Selle (located in the John's Landing area) Jack is a one man show and does a great job.

good luck on your move. Portland is a great place to ride all year round. Just make sure you have a rain jacket!
