On this essential tour of Portland, we'll hop on well-traveled bike lanes and have plenty of stops to admire the views of downtown, the city's many bridges and the river. We'll ride along the waterfront past the brick and cast iron fronted buildings of the Old Town, built in the 19th and early 20th century.

Next, we'll head into Chinatown, where the streets once teemed with immigrants from all over the world. Then we'll roll through the Pearl District, where turn of the century warehouses have been turned into art galleries, shops and restaurants surrounded by soaring glass residences. We'll stop at several of the Pearl's most interesting places.

We'll pass Henry Weinhard's 140-year old brewery and a fortress-like armory turned theater before pointing our handlebars south to downtown. We'll cruise past a number of our favorite food carts before entering the South Park Blocks separated from the North blocks by a century of legal battles. Then we'll pedal through Oregon's largest university and turn downhill to the waterfront and the Willamette River, the lifeblood of the city and state.

Finally we'll ride downriver on car-free paths before coming full circle back where we started, perfectly energized.
