Where to ride: For local outdoor enthusiasts like Lindsey Morse of The Elegant Hippie, reinventing the adventure wheel every weekend is part of the thrill of living in Stumptown. Consider Morse’s 16-mile ride to “sample Portland’s funky charm" along the nature-filled Springwater Corridor Bike Trail. Take a quick detour around the Sellwood neighborhood then follow the trail along Johnson Creek to 82nd Street to load up on Koi Fusion tacos and Voodoo Donuts at Cartlandia, says Morese.
Where to rest: While bike-friendly hotels abound — there’s the Ace, Vintage Portland, Jupiter, Monaco — for a quintessential taste of Portlandia, Morse suggests heading to “an old farm-converted hotel with backyard distilleries and rock concerts on the lawn. Take the trail all the way to mile 15, then map the extra five miles to McMenamins Edgefield. Don’t forget the soaking pools!”Back to top
