Our selection of demo and rental mountain bikes ranges from top of the line full suspension trail bikes to fat bikes from brands like Devinci, Transition, Santa Cruz, Evil, and Juliana.

Does evo only do bike rentals?
No, evo is a leading action sports retailer specializing in ski, snowboard, bike, surf, wake and skate, but each of our flagship locations in Portland, Seattle, and Denver are also so much more than mere stores. They’re community gathering spaces, art galleries, and travel bases for folks of all shapes, sizes and colors. We are a ski and snowboard shop, a clothing store, a skate shop, a bike shop, and a surf shop.
Does evo Portland have a full-service bike shop?
Yes! In addition to bicycle rentals and mountain bike demos, our Portland store has a full-service bike shop that will happily help you out with any bike tune-ups or repairs you need. We want to enable more people to bike Portland.
Are there not bike share programs in Portland?
While there are bike share programs like Biketown Portland, there are a number of drawbacks to them: 1) You can’t reserve them -- imagine ducking into a bar or boutique only to come back outside and find yourself stranded… 2) Bike share bicycles are not serviced regularly nor treated with much respect, as such, you’re likely to get a less-than-ideal experience with poor rolling, poor braking, and poor overall control.

Portland Bike Paths

Gateway Green

One of Portland’s newest parks, the Gateway Green started as 25 acres of unused space and has since been developed into a world-class recreation destination and an exciting demonstration of innovative urban habitat restoration. In addition to mountain bike singletrack, the park also features a bike skills area, gravity area with flow lines and jumps, and a cyclocross course.

Willamette River Loop

The complete Willamette River Loop is a 30-mile route along the river through the city’s south side. Although that might seem long, the entirety of the ride is relatively flat with excellent views and several areas to stop, rest, and relax. The full loop passes through the towns of Milwaukie, Oregon City, and Lake Oswego and finishes in Portland’s picturesque waterfront.

Willamette Greenway Bike Trail

If the 30-mile loop sounds intimidating, then check out the Willamette Greenway Bike Trail. A shorter (approximately 6-mile) alternative to the Willamette River Loop with similar views along the river.

Mountain View Trail

Winds through Powell Butte Nature Park and offers great views of, you guessed it, Mount Hood! While this particular path is paved, there are 20 miles of trails within the park that include mellow mtb singletrack that are fun to explore and easy for beginner mountain bikers to try their hand at.

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

An old railroad line, the Banks-Vernonia State Trail offers 21-miles through lush forest. Although it’s a bit outside of the city (approximately 25 miles west)
