In Bicycle Based Businesses, cargo bikes, Northwest Rides, Portland

Bicycling Hub LogoIn case you didn’t realize, Sunday was the Worst Day of the Year. Sure, the weather was nice, but we’re talking about a bike ride, of course! The Worst Day of the Year Ride, put on by Good Sport Promotion as a fundraiser for the Community Cycling Center! And as a local, bicycle based business, how could Portland Pedal Power not be involved? As an official sponsor of the CCC, we’re closely tied to the Portand bicycling community. Jenn Dederich, one of our co-founders, sits on the Community Connections Board of the CCC, which raises funds for the agency by connecting individual and corporate donors.

And we couldn’t let a local bike ride pass us by without teaming up with another local bicycle business. So we leased one of our Pyxis-equipped Portland Pedal Power bikes to Doug Duguay, owner of, to promote smiles and the CCC on the Worst Day of the Year Ride.
