Beers and bikes — in Portland’s alphabet, these two Bs could battle ferociously for the right to be Stumptown’s second letter. But what if they joined forces and pedaled together? Brewcycle — that’s what.
Seating up to 15 riders, this human-powered party vehicle tours Beervana’s various micro-breweries, helping bikers work up a thirst, and drinkers work up a sweat. The rides all begin and end in Northwest Portland, and can take either a leisurely two-hour tour, parking just a few times, or a faster, more arduous pedal with more frequent stops. Popping into Lucky Labrador Beer Hall, Rogue, Bridgeport Brewing Company, Caps & Corks (a bottle shop and bar) and Deschutes Brewery, the tours offer a schooling in local suds along with a bit of physical education, to boot.
What better way to check both beer and bikes off your Portland to-do list?
