Cycling in Portland, Oregon is something I have not ever really done much of. When I was first taking up the sport in 1988 I was stationed in California (USMC) so only rode in the dessert.
After putting the bike away for some years due to travel and work constraints, I picked up a new one and started again last year here in the Netherlands. I have since rode in Belgium and soon will be doing some riding in France (Normandy).
Looking for some contact points for my next trip home I came across this club in Portland that does not mind if guest riders tag along, Portland Velo. Looks like a well organized group with a good ride calendar that has a bit of everything for each level of rider.
