Portage, a city in southwestern Michigan is renowned for its vast network of parks, trails and bike paths.

There are two types of bikeway trails in the city or Portage. The first is an off-road trail for both bicyclist and pedestrian use, which can be found in the Portage Creek Bicentennial Park. The other is a designated bicycle lane or paved shoulder on the Portage streets, separated by a stripe and featuring signage for Portage bicyclists. Portage bicycle owners can even register their bikes with the Portage Department of Public Safety in case their bicycles are ever lost or stolen.
