Tuesday Morning Wrap-up (with a little Monday on the side)

Good Morning!

Our fearless leader, taking on the mornings – One donut and cup of coffee at a time.

What a beautiful morning it was on the Steel Bridge! It was so nice to talk with some of you, daily commuters, as you braved the crisp cold air this morning.  Thanks to everyone that stopped by for some morning rewards and a nice chat. Seeing everyone riding bikes to work, or home, this morning brought a new appreciation for the city and everyone in it. Whether you all were taking a break from your commute or ride or whirling by, smiles were all around by the handful. Hope you all enjoy your Tuesday!

Here’s one awesome commuter and her sweet bike

 The Hawthorne Bridge  brought us some great stories to kick off the morning and a lot of squeaky brakes.

If you haven’t seen this already, you really should, it’s pretty neat! Here is the bike counter stats from the Hawthorne Bridge for the last 30 days.

First Friday Art by Bike

This past First Friday, Pedal Bike Tours led a spectacular evening ride to three SE Portland art galleries. If you haven’t joined us for one of our free First Friday Art by Bike rides, what are you waiting for? Rides start at the shop at 6pm. All are welcome.

Our night began with a stop at Pushdot Studio on SE 11th to view Friderike Heuer’s exhibition, (S)elective Affinities/ Wahlverwandschaften. The delicious food and cozy space offered a perfect environment for contemplating the interesting juxtaposition of unique characters and scenery in Friderike’s work.

From Pushdot, we traveled up Clinton St. to visit the always welcoming, Studio 2507. Here we encountered the subdued and moody images created by Travis Wade for “mixed media paintings by a serious and dark man.

Finally we traveled to The Bike Show for bikey art, live music by Halley the Harpist, Bece Kidder, and Crankmychain, delicious biscuits from the Biscuit Bike, and the occasional robot/dinosaur attack. This show was hosted by The Splendorporium and Art for Life Children’s Gallery, a fascinating space near Powell City Park. The little people were in full force and brought a lot of great energy to the show. Also Crankmychain gave us all plenty of reason to dance as we enjoyed the artwork! Thanks Splendorporium!
