Portland State University is located on the shaded park blocks of downtown Portland. There is plenty of free parking in the school's garages.


The courses are spectacular. Riders receive detailed course maps with turn-by-turn directions on the back. The maps are mostly informational as the course is well marked with orange directional arrows painted on the ground. Support motorcycles and vans are on course, as well as ride-along mechanics and medics. There is also a dedicated call center, just in case. Rest stops appear every 15 miles and include great food, water and electrolytes, and mechanical support.
