Portland Inspiration

Portland Oregon,  what can we say but an inspirational city of coffee and bikes.   A very brief visit to this city never failed to surprise, its not flat & its got terrible weather! However the population of 650,000, support over 80 bike stores with a selection of urban bikes that was truly astounding. Some of our favourite stores were Clever cyclesGladys BikesPortland Bicycle StudioVelo Cult Dedicated cycleways,  designated back street cycle routes, bike corrals and specific cycle corridors facilitate a myriad of people riding, from cargo bikes delivering goods to mums delivering kids to school.  Add to the mix creative talent such as Walnut Studiolo who supply us with hand crafted leather cycling accessories you have a truly inspirational cycling culture. Then there is the coffee, food carts and craft beer culture - we can't wait for our next visit to discover more..   [row ] [col span="1/3" ] photo-5 [/col] [col span="1/3" ] photo 4 [/col] [col span="1/3" ] photo 1 [/col] [/row] [row ] [col span="1/3" ] photo 3.
