We’re so happy to introduce our Food Carts by Bike tour! It’s been a really long time coming — Sarah wrote the story of food carts many years ago while guiding at another bike tour company, and even before that a whole decade ago when the food cart craze began, writing about food, farms and food culture for local and national blogs. The tour gets its transformation now as Portland’s food cart pods grow and change with the economy and the food culture of Portland — an ever-evolving culture, community and economy.
This perfect 8- to 12-mile bike tour will guide you on a culinary experience through some of our favorites, sampling everything from farm-to-table delights to snacks appropriate to late-night cravings. We’ll meet you in the thriving SE industrial district, at our location near the real deal: the very first food cart pod. Here you’ll be fitted for a bike and helmet, and we’ll head on a neighborhood ride to three of our favorite food cart pods, as we unfold the fascinating (and only told by us!) tale of how Portland came to be the epicenter of the food cart craze. Sample food at each pod, with an option for beer or dessert, and some stops that tell a bit more to the food cart story. The tour starts at 10 a.m. and runs daily starting July 25!Book Now!
