:DOver the past couple of years I have researched an extensive number of low-traffic routes from far away areas like Troutdale, Gresham/Boring, Oregon City, and Tigard back into downtown Portland.
Here is the website for those routes.

A few updates are coming soon. One is a revised route from Tanasbourne

the other is a revised route from the Springwater to SE Clinton

If you have any routes that you particularly like, just email me and I'll see about incorporating them into the site.

Aaron - FYI (Tanasbourne into PDX route) the Winthrop Park/Willowcreek trail is fine when it is dry. When those wooden walkways get wet, they are incredibly slick.

I prefer to go (heading east) NW Evergreen, NW Cornell (I think the construction may be complete in my lifetime, but it is rideable.), R on NW 158th, 1st left (TAKE THE LANE), through the office park, through the Tualatin Hills Park and Rec,
Pioneer, R on Meadow, BL on Butner, cross Murray, R on Huntington, L on Park Way.

Hi bikejunkie
I liked bikely.com idea, butr when I tried to map the 60miler I did last night I ran into some problems.
It doesn't allow the Spring Water
It kept me on main streets - diverting to arterials rather than the small streets we use.
The distance was in kilometers
Granted, I didn't read the directions. Who does? Do I just need to work with it more?
