Bike the Portland Riverwalk

Bike the Riverwalk in Portland, Michigan. The trail is approximately 15 miles in length. The trail meanders through Portland and the Grand and Looking Glass Rivers. The trail is asphalt.  Meet at 6:15pm at Horrocks in Lansing. My car can carry four bikes and four people, so if you don't want to drive all the way just make it to Horrocks.

We will start at Community Lake Park in Portland for those that want to meet us there. The park is on Rowe St off Grand River near the highway. Turn at the Independent Bank building.  

We will bike the trail and eat dinner at the Looking Grand restaurant (if it is still open when we are done). The event will likely be over by 10:30pm. 

Horrocks is located at 7420 W Saginaw Hwy, Lansing, MI 48917.

    The photos are wonderful! Now I'm mad at myself for letting the rain inhibit me from going. Glad you had a great time! See you all soon!

    If you look at the weather this rain is short lived and a lot different than in lansing so it still might be a nice evening in Portland. I can remeber the last time I went to Portland it was raining on my way there and sunny in Portland

    Hi all! Just joined. I recently purchased a new road bike, having graduated from a hybrid (still have that one also). I typically don't ride at night. Noting that this bike event might go until 10:30 p.m., do I need to go out and purchase a head/tail-light for the new bike to participate?

    June 10, 2014

    • Jon

      The bike ride is only during day light hours the later part is the meal at a local restaurant,
