Pedal Powered Springtime

By | April 1, 2018

Now that the rains have died down, it’s our favorite time of year to get out on our bicycles.  Sunny day rides along Hwy. 101 are great during this low-wind time of year.  It’s also a nice time to head up China Mt. Road, or up into Grassy Knob Wilderness, if climb/descent is your thing.

There are plenty of beautiful and fun day half- and full-day rides you can take starting from the Powder House driveway, and we’re happy to suggest some.  If you’re looking for a guided rides on pavement, off-road, singletrack, or beach rides, Pineapple Express Adventure Rides is Port Orford’s bike-guide company.  They can take you further into the back-country for some memorable rides.

The Powder House is a bike-friendly business, and Port Orford is becoming more of a bike-friendly town.  In 2017, they painted 2 wide bike lanes along Hwy. 101 making for a more enjoyable pedal across town.   There’s a bike-kiosk in front of the Food Co-op with tools, a mechanic stand, and a high-volume pump (we’ve got bike storage and a pump, too) for your maintenance needs.  With luck, you’ll be in town for our (almost) Critical Mass bike rides.  It’s a fun time to explore Port Orford roads alongside the people who live here.

So, come and pedal around with us before the summer winds take over.
