Our Audience

BikePortland’s audience is large and influential. Our readers are engaged and active in our comments section, on social media and within their communities. We respect our audience and want to partner with brands and businesses who “get” that BikePortland is a respected news outlet with an impressive daily reach and a powerful source of advocacy and community-building that makes a real impact.

Why We Exist

BikePortland is here to share information and serve our community. We believe that honest, independent, local journalism is an essential building block of a healthy city.

Advertising revenue is an important way businesses can support us while promoting their work and causes.

What We Do

We publish 2-5 stories a day, email our daily headlines every morning, maintain a comprehensive bike-related events calendar, offer a job listings service, organize offline events, keep our social media accounts well fed with original content like videos, photos, and commentary — and much more.

What We’re Not

We’re not cheap. Because we’re a very lean operation we don’t have the capacity to work with a large number of ad partners. We prefer to work on deep partnerships with a manageable amount of clients who are ready to commit for at least three months (although we regularly do shorter campaigns). That being said, we have a wide range of options that fit almost any budget.

What We Are: A Perfect Home For Local Brands

People who follow BikePortland are smart and engaged influencers who love cycling and are fiercely loyal to local brands and businesses. Let us introduce you and connect your stories, services, and products to our audience. Request a media kit by emailing
