We reached out to Nick Carnera so show us around Portland by bike and capture the city in his beautiful photographic style. Take a look below to find out what his top spots in Portland are.

1. St. Johns Bridge 

Wythe in Raw on St. John's Bridge

We start our tour at sunrise in north Portland at one of the most iconic bridges in town, the St. Johns bridge. The sun beaming across the bridge makes it a great place to shoot morning light hitting the green hues of the structure. With views of industrial properties, cathedral park and the river below, this is a perfect spot for a bike cruise.

2. Blue Moon Camera & Machine 

Blue Moon Camera

In the little area of St. Johns is one of the only film camera shops still around. It’s my go to place to get film developed and pick up a fresh roll as well!

3. Portland Waterfront 

Portland Waterfront

The east side of the Willamette river has the best view of Portland-hands down. There are tons of docks off of the water and a boardwalk that you can ride for miles. If you're feeling touristy, head over the Burnside Bridge and get a shot of the famous Portland, Oregon sign!

4. International Rose Test Garden 

International Rose Garden

You can’t go to the city of roses without seeing the Rose Garden! Here we found ourselves surrounded by roses of every color. It's hard to get a bad photo of this place! And it smells great too!

5. Robo Taco 

Robo Taco

I don’t know about you but I can eat Mexican food any time of the day. From nachos to burritos, this little hole in the wall has it all. Of course, I got the giant chicken soft taco with a Jarritto!

 

6. Heart Coffee Roasters

Heart Coffee

Lastly, we finish our tour with some of the best coffee in town! If you're looking to get a grande, non fat, caramel frappacino with extra whip cream then this isn't your coffee shop. But if you are a coffee connoisseur you're in luck. I ordered a traditional Macciato, perfect for an afternoon pick me up.

City Bike Helmet by Thousand
Frances (Belmont, US)
Scooter Perfect

I bought this for my scooter-loving boyfriend. The look and function is PERFECT for scooter use. The snap allows quick-on-off for the urban transit connections and zipping to meetings in the city. The brim is just enough to prevent glare while still keeping the helmet compact for errands and trips to the grocery store. And did I mention that he LOVES the look of it? He said it distinguishes him from the bike crowd in a very smart way.....Still kicking it at 60!

Thanks so much for sharing Frances. We're glad you're finding many uses for the helmet. -Ryan Zagata

Nantucket Lightship Basket
Lindsay (Sarnia, CA)
Love it!

The perfect size and just what I was looking for. The shape of this basket stores my things securely and has a lot of room inside.

Thanks for sharing Lindsay. We're big fans of Nantucket Baskets as well. -Ryan Zagata

Bedford 8 Speed
Raphael Roos (Spicer, US)
Ride in style

In a sea of boring bikes, I found Brooklyn bike, and I couldn’t be more happier with my Bedford. The city ride is so smooth, and can’t help but notice the heads turning when I ride by :)

Thanks so much for sharing Raphael. We're thrilled you're enjoying your Bedford. -Ryan Zagata

Swept Back Handlebars
Blake Hebold (Falmouth, US)
Great Handlebars!

As a young bike mechanic I don’t have preferred bike component retailers. But these are perfect bars for cruiser vibe bikes. Everything (grips, brake levers etc) fit according to measurements. Great product, highly recommend it!

Thanks so much for the kind words and acknowledgment Blake. -Ryan Zagata
