Portlander Emily Vislocky loves her stand-up paddleboard (SUP) and she loves to bike to the water to use it.
Since we are all about pedaling-to-paddle here on BikePortland, I wanted to share her excellent video that explains exactly how to carry a SUP board on your bike.
I know it’s still not quite perfect SUP season (and have you seen next week’s weather? yikes!), but as you dream about summer, make sure you bookmark Emily’s videos.
And if you’re curious about the specific rack she uses in the video, head over to YouTube for the links in the video description.

Just watch out for those “tradewinds”!
My thoughts are the same. Otherwise looks cool as long as you don’t have to turn right.
Did either of you actually watch the video? She talks about how she’s ridden just fine in the wind. And Mike, I don’t think turning right is a big deal either.
Thanks for posting
We also bike our inflatable kayak to the river all summer long. It is such an amazing resource we have right here in the middle of Portland. We often swim in ross island on nice summer Saturdays
