NY Times article, "Portland, Portland Style: Touring by Bicycle." Reporter Matt Furber presents a well-balanced, thorough article with plenty of tips about how to see Portland by bicycle. And plenty of web links to plan your trip. He notes:
"It helps to have a Bike There! map, published by the regional governing body known as Metro and available at bike shops and the downtown visitors center. A mapping program, found at byCycle.org, can help visitors pick the best biking route to markets, galleries, museums or other destinations."
And many of the city's buses have bike racks on the front so you can load your bike in the suburbs, bus to downtown, then offload your bike for a day of cruising.
