‘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...

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...

Get pumped for a pandemic-proof Pedalpalooza

You didn’t think it would be cancelled, did you? (Artwork by Beth Krynick) “I’m looking forward to pedaling through town on Super Hero Day, passing fellow cyclists in capes, and rolling past someone clad in all teal on Rainbow Day.”— Meghan Sinnott, Pedalpalooza organizer The indomitable spirit that runs through Portland’s legendary “bike fun” culture has run into its toughest barrier ever. With the pandemic-induced stay home order likely to last at least another month, organizers of the an...

Velo Cirque brings out the customs, classics, and those who love them

It was packed!(Photos: J Maus/BikePortland) Portland is no stranger to bike shows. We’ve hosted the North American Handmade Bicycle Show, we used to have a show that roped in the design industry, and we have an annual show just for Oregon-based custom builders. But Velo Cirque is different. Held at Velo Cult on Saturday, the show was open to anyone with a story to tell about their classic or custom bike — whether they built it or not. As I walked the aisles and met the owners of many fine rigs,...

Portland’s network of bike clubs for women is thriving

The Bikin’ Betties of Portland.(Photo: Bikin’ Betties on Facebook) The community of people who love bicycling in Portland is always changing and evolving. As someone who watches over it everday, I’ve noticed a nice trend of late: A proliferation of riding clubs devoted specifically to women. It’s a very encouraging sign and a testament to the depth and breadth of who’s riding bikes in Portland. Statistically speaking (as of 2014), women make up about one-third of Portland’s daily bike traffic ...

Sponsor pulls out of Singlespeed Cross “World Championships” amid sexism concerns

“There is a constant struggle for women to feel included, welcomed and looked at as equals in bike racing… This type of content just adds to the stereotypes and sexist culture that is still prevalent in athletics and society as a whole.”— Hazel Gross Hundreds of racers from all over the country will descend on Portland this weekend for the “officially unofficial” 10th annual Singlespeed Cyclocross World Championships (SSCXWC) — but some fans have decided not to attend and one of its sponsored ...
