Bikes and free tickets at Portland International Airport

At Oregon’s Portland International Airport, (PDX) travelers can enter a contest to win a pair of round-trip tickets from Portland to any Southwest Airlines destination. The contest is part of the airport’s Summer Splash celebration and runs until Labor Day.

You can enter the contest in person at the airport or on-line here.

If you did visit the airport in person, however, you’d have a chance to see an exhibit of 10 bicycles designed and built by Oregon craftsmen and craftswomen, on display in the E Concourse through September. Included are a broad range of machines, including a steel pursuit bike, folding bike, recumbent cargo trike, steel freakbike – also known as tall bike – and a bike with a frame made from Douglas fir.

Even better: PDX is one of the few airports in the country with a multiuse bike and pedestrian path connecting regional trails to the terminal. So you can ride your bike to the airport!
