Portland Bike Rental.
 
Traveling to Portland next weekend. Would like to do a group ride sometime during the week if the weather and time permit. Any suggestions on where to get a bike and what group would be greatly appreciated. The hotel is in Hillsboro, riding level is about mid category 4 right now. Thanks for any help.

Clever Cycles Rents Bromptons.. but it sounds like you want a Race Bike.


IDK much about PDX since I dont Live there . only visit the VA Medical Center for Appointments.

Bike Gallery has rentals. Would be better at their Beaverton location, but maybe they would arrange that.

Lakeside also has rentals (but isn't all that close either):

There are a few posters from the Hillsboro/Beaverton area that will hopefully weigh in.

I didn't even realize Bike Gallery did rentals. I'm not sure what other options there are out this way. It's possible the Washington County Co-op in Hillsboro would rent you a bike if they have something in your size, but I'm just guessing. There might be some legal reason they couldn't.

Portland Velo does a group ride out of Hillsboro (http://www.portlandvelo.net/index.ph...-saturday-ride). I'm not sure if that's going on this time of year, so you'd probably want to check with them.

Another thing you might try is sending a message to the local bike racing mailing list asking if anyone is doing a ride you could join (http://obra.org/mailing_lists/). It's generally a pretty friendly group.

Was looking at the OBRA, seems like the best place to get a ride in. Will be in Jefferson for a few days too so might do one out of Corvallis?
