Meet up with some of Portland’s bike riding dancers and see the beautiful night time views of Portland at its best – by bike! This is a leisurely flat ride so you’ll arrive back at the DoubleTree refreshed and ready to dance.
Warm up for the Friday night Valentango milonga with a ride along Portland’s beautiful waterfront and enjoy our one and only car-free bridge over the Willamette – the Tilikum Crossing.
We ride rain or moonshine. If the night is clear, we’ll take the ride back to it’s roots with home made treats and outdoor dancing. If it’s going to be wet or sort of, we’ll warm up at Ford Food and Drink.
Some of you are thinking, “I’m from out of town, how am I going to get a bike?” Staying at the DoubleTree? The DoubleTree has got you covered! Free bikes are available to guests of the DoubleTree, which is why the ride begins there. Contact Guest Services at the DoubleTree to sign up of a bike.
