The Portland peninsula bills itself as the “Gateway to nature.” What many Portlanders consider to be one of the farthest, tumbleweed- laden, lawless outposts of the Rose City is in reality a fine place to get a little fresh air via bicycle. From the bluffs of Willamette Boulevard to the serene Smith and Bybee Lakes, there’s a lot to appreciate on this 18.4-mile bike ride around North Portland. Due to the nature of a loop ride, you can start at a myriad of spots. But if you’re traveling to North Portland, a great way to begin is by taking the MAX to the Kenton Station and beginning your journey there. From the charming downtown area of Kenton, head north on Denver Avenue for a quick 0.5 mile to the Columbia Slough Trail. Heading west, the paved path leads away from traffic along the tree-lined slough.
