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.

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.
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.
