While the Lloyd District may seem like a far bike ride, depending on where you live in Southwest Washington, it could be an option for you. Many people already make this commute by bicycle. You can ride the whole distance or you could ride your bike to a bus stop or transit center and either leave your bike there if secure facilities are available or you could take your bike with you.
Both the I-5 bridge and I-205 bridge have bike paths that are accessible from both Vancouver and Portland. The City of Vancouver has developed a new bike map that shows routes within Vancouver to the bridges, and then it also includes the City of Portland bike map that shows routes from the bridges to the Lloyd District. If you’d like a copy of the new Vancouver Bike Map, you can pick one up at the Commuter Connection.
Most of the businesses and agencies in the Lloyd District have a “bike champion”, someone that is available to give route and commuting information to new bike commuters. The Lloyd TMA Bike page has a wealth of information for the bike commuter traveling to the Lloyd District, including resources for both the beginner and seasoned bike commuters. They also provide assistance on how to find a bike champion at your site.
