Because I’ve been sick for a week and PBM hasn’t fixed the damage done to my beautiful two-wheeled machine, here’s some random stuff about bikes!
There’s a bike barn in North Portland that fixes bikes or strips them down for parts. Welding chain links together to make belt buckles and other random re-purposed stuff. Check out their stuff. http://www.etsy.com/shop/RhythmicMetal
There’s a bike exhibit at the Portland Art Museum. http://www.portlandartmuseum.org/special/cyclepedia
Bikes played a pretty significant role in the feminist movement. Seriously. Look it up.
There’s a pretty sweet app called Portland Bike that tells you the easiest way to travel by bike without getting run over. It’s $0.99 and totally worth it.
Next month is the Bike Commute Challenge to see what company in Oregon can have the most amount of people take their bike to work. http://bikecommutechallenge.com/
