Despite all the rainy days, Portland, Oregon is known as one of the most bike-friendly and bike-able cities around.
Stenciled bike-riders with personality are everywhere –
And the city makes it easy to take a bike on the MAX light rail train that runs to and from Portland International Airport, where there’s bicycle parking and easy access to a bike and pedestrian path.
Now the airport has added a welcome and very useful amenity just for cyclists: a bike assembly station where travelers can easily assemble and disassemble their bikes before and after flights.

And – here’s a nice touch – Travel Oregon and the Port of Portland have basic bike tools, such as a pedal wrenches and air pumps, available for check out.
Look for the bike assembly stations at Portland International Airport on the lower terminal roadway near the TriMet MAX station. Check out tools and find out about local cycling activities at the State Welcome Center, near bag carousels 5 and 6.
