KGW got a few things wrong about Portland’s Bike Theft Task Force

Screen grab from interview with KGW host Dan Haggerty. A segment that aired Tuesday night on KGW, Portland’s NBC affiliate station, got a few things wrong about bike theft in Portland. The Story with Dan Haggerty spent about six minutes on the topic, framed around the assertion that the Portland Police Bureau’s Bike Theft Task Force (BTTF) has been “eliminated” due to recent police budget cutbacks. Unfortunately, the central idea and framing of the segment is untrue. The BTTF is alive and was...

Portland cycling leaders at front of transgender cycling fight

Portlander Molly Cameron in Bicycling. Anti-transgender legislation proposed in many states across the country has spurred local cycling leaders to step up, speak out, and fight back. According to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), 31 states are currently considering bills that would limit health care to transgender youth and/or prevent transgender youth from playing sports. Arkansas is one of the states leading the charge. It’s also slated to host the 2022 UCI Cyclocross World Champi...

‘Hill killerz’ trend has managed to make climbing hills fun

Maria Schur is adding something new to climbing: smiles.(Photo: Madi Carlson) “Historically, I’ve hated hills. But what are you going to do? Ride around every single hill?”— Maria Schur When it comes to bicycling, Portlander Maria Schur has morphed from hill hater to hill lover. And now, her personal journey has led her to spread that love to others. Maria is Portland’s hill-climbing ambassador. A sloped street sommelier whose infectious love of riding bikes and building community has...

Art by @jjbccm Just announced for next Saturday: The Stop Asian Hate Solidarity Ride, supported by the fledgling group, BikePOCPNW. Below is the description they’ve shared on Instagram: The murders in Atlanta have disturbingly shown a light on anti-Asian sentiments, xenophobia, misogyny, & fetisization of Asian women.

After 47 years, Bike Gallery stores are now Trek Bicycle stores

New merch.(Photos: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) I knew it was going to happen, but it still felt like a shock. Last week I scrolled through Instagram and a big red “Trek” logo and trekbicyclepdx appeared where bikegallerypdx to be. Then I typed BikeGallery.com into my browser and it auto-forwarded to trekbikes.com/us/en_US/stores/pdx/. It was the end of an era. Bike Gallery was founded in 1974 by Bob Graves, who passed the stores onto his son Jay Graves in 1995. Jay built the business into on...

Let’s talk about the BikePortland comment section

On Saturday, Tony Jordan, a parking reform advocate I’ve known and respected for years and who’s written stories for BikePortland, posted something on Twitter about a BikePortland comment. The conversations and concerns triggered by his Tweet (which I’m still responding to, three days later) have made me think deeply about our comment section. Here’s Tony’s tweet: Comments like this one on BikePortland reflect poorly on the community. It’s an exhausting and fruitless battle to argue with tr...

The safety of Portland protestors is under threat due to aggressive car drivers

A car driver drove toward a large group of marchers on SE Powell near Cleveland High School on June 13th. (Still image taken from PPB video) I was afraid of this. For years we’ve been warning about the threat of vehicular violence by people using cars. Now it’s on the rise amid the daily marches against police violence and racism that have been going on in Portland for three weeks straight. There have been several documented cases of Black Lives Matter protests being disturbed by car drivers ...

Pedalpalooza starts Monday with 5 weeks of bike riding inspiration

Pedalpalooza will look and feel a lot different this year, but organizers have done an amazing job putting together something that could be every bit as memorable. Because Covid-19 is still very much a concern and riding in groups is still a bad idea, the name of the game this year is that daily themes and sharing rides digitally will create some of the community connections we so badly crave. The official Pedalpalooza calendar is full with a different theme for each day of the five week, 35-d...

Portland geologist Lalo Guerrero shares the dirt on local trails

40-year-old molten lava from Plains of Abraham trail in Washington. Lalo Guerrero.(Photos: Lalo Guerrero/Trailside Geology) One of the best things about bikes is how they lead to so much discovery. In urban areas their relatively slow pace and open-air design helps connect people to their surroundings in a much more intimate way than cars do. And when riding on trails, bikes can take you to awe-inspiring places where rocks, water, trees and dirt create mother nature’s murals. “A bi...

Golden Pliers charges into 2020 with new bikes, food and drink upgrades

We’ll be seeing more Rivendell builds from Golden Pliers, like this pleasing Hunqapillar.(Photo: Golden Pliers) With all the doom-and-gloom news about local retail lately, I’m eager to share good news from the bike shop front. Golden Pliers on North Skidmore and Interstate has been a bright spot ever since they opened two years ago. For a very small shop where the owners still put in most of the hours, Golden Pliers seems to have found a workable niche. This week they announced news that will ...

Rivelo, Breadwinner Cafe, and Norther Cycles are all closing

Portland’s local bike culture and retail landscape has taken a few more hits. The last decade has brought with it a sea change in Portland bicycle culture. The new decade looks to continue the trend as three beloved small businesses have decided to call it quits: Rivelo, Breadwinner Cafe, and Norther Cycles. (Photo: Rivelo Instagram) Rivelo was a small, niche shop located just off the Springwater Corridor near OMSI that specialized in Rivendell bikes. In addition to a well-curated select...

Company responds to YouTuber who (once again) easily cuts through bicycle lock

(Photo: Ottolock) Back in December a YouTuber named LockPickingLawyer who specializes in defeating security products caused a stir when he posted a video that showed an Ottolock being easily cut with snips in just two seconds. Ottolock is a Portland company that has found a strong niche with its relatively small and lightweight lock. The company has always acknowledged that it’s not meant as a primary theft deterrent and that it should only be used either in combination with a strong U-lock or ...

Weird but true: His bike commute inspired a series of album cover parodies

Hillsboro resident Aaron Harrison (he goes by Rambo) has a commuting style all his own. Rambo has worked in Portland bike shops for decades and he’s also a decorated track racer. I’ve known about him for years now (I can recall he and his Orange bike flying past me with whooosh during Cycle Oregon years ago); but I had no idea about his love for music and artistic flair on Instagram. Let me explain… I follow many of Instagram accounts. It’s one way I keep track of what’s going on in our commu...

Welcome to gravel-in-the-bike-lanes season

Hello again gravel.(Photo: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) Fresh off leaves-in-the-bike-lanes season, it’s time to gird yourself for gravel-in-the-bike-lanes season. With the big winter storm last week, Portland Bureau of Transportation crews were out in force laying down gravel to prevent roads from becoming too slick from ice. That’s all fine and good when you need the traction for driving; but the gravel that’s left behind is an annoyance and hazard for bicycle riders. Gravel can cause riders...

A cyclocross season through the lens of Drew Coleman

*Photos and words by Drew Coleman I love bike racing. Last year I got hurt and had to stop, so I picked up my camera and experienced cyclocross through the lens of a camera rather than from the seat of a bike. This season, I have been fortunate enough to be given access and opportunity to photograph cyclocross outside of Oregon. It was the first time I stepped outside the Oregon Bicycle Racing Association (OBRA) cyclocross bubble and I could finally put it all into context. What I hav...

Jury’s out on PBOT’s experimental bike-friendly speed bumps

Experimental bike-friendly speed bump on SE Clinton west of 26th. (Photo: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) I have a complicated relationship with speed bumps. “These are terrible, speed bumps have never been an issue for bikes.” “I love them.” I smiled as I rolled through without any bumping or thumping. I love them because they slow me down when I’m driving. This means streets are safer and I’m less likely to be in a crash. I like that (and my neighbors do too). But I don’t like how speed b...
