The Portland Pusher began in 2003 to showcase skateboarding as a way of transportation, and as a test of skill and endurance. Since then, it has evolved into a series that includes 2 races per year- 1 in the winter and 1 in the summer. Each race has a unique course. Distances have ranged between 3 to 15 miles. Prizes are given out by raffle. Everyone from first to last has the same chance at the prizes.

Bring gear that you don't need, don't want, or can't use. You might find a good deal or a great trade!!

*It is legal to skate on any street or sidewalk in the city 24 hours a day outside of the defined downtown core. In the downtown core area–defined geographically by Naito Parkway to the east, 13th Avenue to the west, Northwest Hoyt Street to the north and Southwest Jefferson Street to the south–you are allowed to skate in the street only, not on the sidewalk.

The City of Portland has designated certain downtown streets as "preferred skating routes." These streets will be signed as skate routes. Outside of downtown, the Portland Office of Transportation recommends skaters use designated bike routes. Those routes are signed for bicycles and will be signed for skating in the future. To obtain more information on the city’s bike routes and to get a map, please call Transportation Options at 503-823-CYCL(2925).

There is NO skating allowed on any portion of the downtown transit mall on 5th and 6th Avenues or on the walkways in the center of the downtown park blocks.

All skaters under the age of 16 years old must wear a helmet at all times while skating. If you skate after sunset, you must wear either reflective materials, a flashing reflector or a light on both your front and back. All skaters using the city streets must obey the same rules of the road that apply to bicycles.

Any violation of the new skate rules carries a $25 fine. If you are under 16 and get caught skating without a helmet, your parent or guardian will be notified of the violation.

Remember, it is still ILLEGAL to skate on private property or to cause damage to any ledges, stairs, rails or other urban architecture. Other applicable laws still apply to this illegal behavior and these laws will be strictly enforced by the Portland Police Bureau. It is also still illegal to skate on any brickwork, cobblestones or ornamental surface, picnic table, tennis court, fountain area, planter or sculpture located in a public area (City Ordinance 20.12.205).*

Kelley Point ...
Kelley Point, Oregon, is located at the junction of the Willamette River with the Columbia River, at Columbia River Mile (RM) 101. Kelley Point is the right bank point of the Willamette. Directly across the Willamette from Kelley Point is Sauvie Island, and across the Columbia from Kelley Point on the Washington side is Blurock Landing, a spot where five Cascade Range volcanoes can easily be viewed from the parking lot.

Hall J. Kelley ...
Kelley Point was officially named in 1926 after Hall J. Kelley, an early promotor of Oregon. In 1829, Kelley drew up plans for a great city on the peninsula between the Columbia and the Willamette Rivers. Kelley was also famous for his proposal to name the Cascade Range Peaks after U.S. Presidents.

Meet in the parking lot at Kelley Point Park at 8:30 AM for registration. At 9 AM we will skate as a group from the park, cross Marine Dr. to the other side for safety reasons, and begin the race. The course will follow the bike path going east on Marine Dr. to Smith-Bybee Lakes Wildlife Area. The path leads into the park and continues through the park until you reach N Portland Road. Cross at the crosswalk, take a right and follow the path south. Continue on the path as it winds downhill and follows the Columbia Slough going east. When you see the bridge, take a right and cross over to the next path. You have 2 options on which way to go, both end in the same place. Follow the path west until you reach N Portsmouth Ave. Take a left up the hill and cross N Columbia Blvd. Take a right, follow the sidewalk on N Columbia Blvd., past N Van Houten and N Clarendon to the Peninsula Crossing Trail entrance. Follow the Peninsula Crossing Trail west to the end, all the way to N Willamette Blvd. Take a right on N Willamette Blvd. and go north to the St. John's Bridge, then take a left on N Philadelphia Ave. The finish line is the first archway under the bridge. Distance for this race is approximately 8 miles.
