About

Portland Pedal Power is an owner-run company, committed to strengthening our community by supporting local businesses. In 2009, founder Ken Wetherell built the first cargo bike delivery enclosure (now named the Pyxis™) in his garage and started delivering food to hungry locals.

Our fleet has grown to 16 delivery bikes and we are catering bigger and better lunches, fueling local restaurant sales, and promoting likeminded businesses with a unique active advertising platform.

Catering by bike sustainably brings food and products to businesses which reduces congestion and C02 emissions on our busy downtown streets, helping companies enhance their sustainable business practices, and encouraging our vendors to think differently about packaging, waste and reuse. It’s a holistic approach that has us constantly evolving and improving our practices.

In addition to using bikes for delivery, Portland Pedal Power defaults to family style meals to reduce packaging and food waste, charges for disposable plates and utensils to encourage the use of reusable options and can donate leftover food to local non-profits. We have a commitment to working with local businesses including sourcing 100% of our food from local restaurants and delivering to a customer base of 75% local and independent companies.

We are working to revolutionize how businesses connect in dense urban centers. Work with us and let us work for you. Power to the pedal!
