The first ever Oregon Handmade Bicycle Show will showcase the work of 27 Oregon based bicycle builders on Sunday, November 11th, 2007 from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Miller Hall, World Forestry Center, Washington Park (next to the Zoo). The show is open to the public and admission is $5.00 at the door.
The event is organized by the Oregon Bicycle Constructors' Association, is sponsored by the Portland Office of Transportation and received support from the Portland Development Commission.
"There is a long tradition of bicycle building in Oregon, and a more recent explosion of new builders," says Andy Newlands of the Oregon Bicycle Constructors' Association, and an Oregon framebuilder for more than 30 years. "Oregon is a wonderful place to ride a bike, so it is no surprise that there is such an appreciation and regard for handmade bikes."
