For over 50 years, Portlanders have welcomed the new year with a bike ride. The ride serves two purposes:

  • highlights recent and upcoming changes to our streets
  • provides a fun opportunity to see new parts of the city with friends old and new

Streets are quiet on New Year’s Day, which allows the New Year’s Day Ride to take routes that might be unpleasant on any other day.
