To us locals it’s really no surprise that Bicycling Magazine named Portland America’s Most Bike-Friendly City in 2012. People in this town are legitimately bonkers about biking (rain can’t even dampen our spirits). So naturally, we’d love to see you enjoying our beautiful city by bicycle, too. As a guest of Hotel Rose you’ll enjoy complimentary bicycle rentals. Bikes are available at the front desk and come with locks and helmets.
Right outside our door you’ll find one of the best biking spots in the whole city: the Willamette River and Tom McCall Waterfront Park—37 glorious acres of biking heaven. Here you can leisurely pedal up and down the riverfront on a multi-use path that’s closed to motor vehicles.
Looking for a bit more adventure? Head over one of the river’s four bridges to explore what’s on the other side. Or throw all caution (and clothing) to the wind and sign up for the annual Naked Bike Ride. Yep, that’s a real thing. And it is not for the modest!
