Coming to the Filmed by Bike film festival from out of town? Ride Amtrak! Amtrak, hosts of our Main Stage on opening night, has plenty of room for bikes, so hop on the train and bring your bike along for the easiest possible trip to Portland. Once you’re in Portland, it’s easy to get around by bike, explore the city and soak it all in like a local. The city has a wealth of bike friendly routes that will easily take you all over the city making it simple to navigate your way.
Stop by any local bike shop or the Portland Visitor’s Center near the train station to pick up a copy of a free map of the region that helps you find the safest and most direct routes for getting to your destination.
The Amtrak Cascades line requires an advance reservation for bikes, so book your ticket early to secure a spot for you and your bike. It’s easy to get your bike on the train and an Amtrak employee will help you load your bike. With many food and drink options and things to see and do along the route, you will have an exciting trip to a vibrant city!
