BikePortland.org is an independent daily news source that covers all aspects of the Portland bike scene.

Our mission is to inspire people in Portland and beyond to realize every facet of cycling’s vast potential.

The site was founded in July 2005 by Jonathan Maus. Maus is still editor and publisher and in May 2013 we added News Editor Michael Andersen to the team.

In addition to breaking news and feature stories, BikePortland is known for our events, photos, Job Listings, Stolen Bike Listings, podcast, and regular columns like the Real Estate Beat, Ride Along, People on Bikes, Ask BikePortland, and more.
