America’s hipster capital. Rose City. Beervana. PDX. Puddletown. Rip City. Stumptown. P-Town. Whatever you want to call Portland, there’s no denying the Oregon city’s got game. At least the local NBA team, the Portland Trail Blazers, does.
Have fixie, will travel. Pedal power beats walking when it comes to travelling around a new city and definitely trumps public transport for the freedom and flexibility to really get in and explore hipster ‘hoods and off-the-beaten track destinations.
