Portland, Oregon is one of the most Bike Friendly Cities in the US according to Bicycling Magazine in 2012. So, it seemed inevitable that our son, Joshua, would settle here. He has loved bicycles ever since his first ride. He’s been a bike mechanic, raced on the road and at a velodrome track, and still is a very serious bicycle commuter. He makes his CSA farm deliveries on a Bullitt cargo bike. He’s definitely his father’s son. Joe commuted to work by bike for 35 years and rode his bike across the US.
The bicycles were from the collection of Michael Embacher, a designer from Vienna. The 40 bicycles chosen for the show were in a range of styles and reflected Embacher’s strong design sensibilities. Take a look:
We rode to Cyclepedia through the streets of Portland – Joe on his recumbent bike and Joshua on his cargo bike, hauling Beth perched on a wooden box as his cargo. In a bike friendly city – we fit right in.
