We are creating a travel guide so that people visiting Portland can see our town the way locals do—by bicycle!
We are writing and designing a pocket-sized guide book for bicycling in Portland, Oregon.
The book is a companion to our soon-to-be-launched web guide to bicycling in Portland. It's a travel guidebook, but with a twist. You know all the good stuff at the front of most guide books about local history, catching the bus, which bridges you can bike over, and tips for doin' it like a local? That's what's in our printed guide--but geared towards bikers.
Meanwhile, all our specific listings—like where to rent a bike and what awesome events are going on while you're in town—will be on the web where they'll never be out of date. Don't worry, the printed version tells you the places you can go to use the web.
If you want even more tips for your trip, we'll send you a custom itinerary based on your interests, complete with bike routes to get there.
The guidebook will be locally printed and full of gorgeous images by local "drawist" Matt Gauck. It will be bursting with our years of observations and collected tips. It is our hope that with this book on hand anybody on any budget can hop off the train in Portland and immediately be biking like a local.
The money we raise will compensate the artist and cover printing costs and the postage to mail you your Portland travel packs.
Thank you for visiting!
