We're living in Portland, Oregon and I'm looking to buy a bike I can use to cycle a few miles to work downtown and get around our neighbourhood. There's so many bike shops here we don't know where to start looking. I'd prefer a good-quality secondhand bike, but could probably stretch to a new one if I had to. Neither of us are bike nerds so are wary of being sold the wrong thing, so we're after a place that will give us good, honest, advice and have a good range of bikes. Thanks.

I'm helping to organize a conference in Portland this coming June. As part of the conference, we'd like to do "Portland-y" tours, including a Saturday evening bike tour. But where in the world do we get bikes for 50 people (give or take)? Can you recommend bike rental outfits in Portland? Or maybe places that actually conduct bike tours? (I don't mind giving the tour myself, but am happy to have somebody else do it, too.) Any other tips for leading a big group on a tour of the city during the evening of the Starlight Parade?
