TWW’s Cool Places: River City Bicycles

logoLocated in Southeast Portland near the underside of the Hawthorne Bridge, River City Bicycles is a landmark Portland bike store that should be a required stop when visiting the city. Stocked with the latest in road, cyclocross and mountain bikes, along with the required necessities (think a LOT of racks of spandex, supplements, shoes, etc), River City has created a brand all of its own. In addition to selling bikes, the store sponsors its own cycling team, and participates in a ton of community outreach throughout Portland. The staff is young, attractive and helpful and they all look like they could crush your soul on the bike. In a nice way. My favorite part: the store always provides free coffee. River City Bicycles is a great place to tap into the Portland cycling scene, and grab some cool stuff while you’re at it.
