    Join us! We'll slowly zigzag our way through quiet SE Portland streets with an eventual pit stop for a game of Bocce and Pimm's. Final destination is the 2015 Filmed by Bike event, hosted by the Hollywood Theater. Brompton folding bikes are encouraged, but we won't hold it against you if your bike doesn't fold.

    Don't own a Brompton? You can now book your rental Brompton online. The first six customers who book online using the code "cheers" get a free Brompton rental for the event. Rental bikes must be returned by noon the next day.

Rentals

We rent Brompton folding bikes, and sometimes a few other kinds. Bikes come complete with lights, locks, fenders, ample luggage options, etc. Bells are mandatory, no exceptions.

Part of our purpose in offering rentals is to let prospective buyers try our unusual bikes over longer periods. If you buy a bike similar to your rental within a week of return, we refund up to a week's rental fee toward the purchase.

About us

We are Portland’s first and largest bicycle shop devoted entirely to bicycles as primary transportation, serving urban households like ours seeking to avoid dependence on cars with practical, stylish bikes for everyday use: not just “commuting” bikes, but family transport, cargo, and folding bikes, all equipped for comfort, safety, and reliability. We also sell street clothing and accessories that support a practical biking lifestyle in all seasons.

We are not motivated by the rising costs of motoring, ecological guilt, or a body-sculpting regimen. Bicycling is not a sacrifice or a statement. We ride instead of drive because it is pleasurable and convenient, simply the best way to get around Portland. We do not sell sporting goods or fitness equipment: fitness happens by riding your bike right past the gym in the course of your normal errands.

We opened in June 2007, after our two families became partners to help make Portland an even better place to live and work, slow down in, ride every day. In a town with 70 other bike shops, we expanded our family-friendly shop three times through the recession to 7000 square feet, and in 2012 were named Best Urban Bike Shop in the United States by Bicycle Retailer and Industry News.
