Ride Through the Seasons

The Portland Bureau Of Transportation's (PBOT) Ride Through the Seasons campaign aims to encourage Portlanders to keep on riding their bike past summer and into fall. Join us for rides and events, with the chance to win prizes along the way. Riding in the rain is not only doable, it's fun too!

Keep on riding, Portland!

Bike Summer may be over, but our streets are open to bicycles year-round, 24/7. Our Ride Through the Seasons campaign is here to help you prepare to ride beyond summer and into fall. 

The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) is offering a series of free workshops and bike rides throughout fall, in partnership with community-based organizations.

By participating in Ride Through the Seasons events, you'll also have the chance to win prizes!
