Thanks to everyone who came out last week to help support the BTA at the Clever Cycles Trivia Night and Velo Cult’s Trunk Show! Two great Bike shops threw two great events, benefiting the BTA, that brought people together for the enjoyment of bicycling.
Last Thursday night BTA Board Member, and Clever Cycles owner, Martina Fahrner hosted Bicycle Trivia Night.
It was a fun and rowdy crowd that came out for the event. Everyone got to practice their bicycle knowledge prowess with a wide range of questions on topics from ratios of gears to the “birth year” of BikePortland.
One lucky trivia player even won an Electra bicycle!
Over at Velo Cult the following night, the Velo Cult Trunk Show was replete with beer, bikes, and hand made crafts. A great crowd came out to socialize and shop at the Hollywood-neighborhood bike shop and bar.
Fun, funky, local, bike-inspired artisans sold their wears, including Rebicyclist, Rhythmic Metal, Firefly Crafts, North St. Bags, and Velo Gioielli. It was awesome to see so many people come out for the event. There were even a few who popped in for a beer, only to be surprised and excited by the crowd and the crafts.
A group of friends came to the Velo Cult Trunk Show as part of a birthday celebration. One of the friends, George, summed it up well: “This place is great, there’s really no where else like [Velo Cult] around here.”
Thanks to Clever Cycles and Velo Cult for putting on these events, and for supporting the BTA! Be sure to sign up for our newsletter to hear about other upcoming events hosted by our business members!
