21st Avenue Bicycles

 It is generally agreed that (by a long way) the best way to navigate the streets and routes that criss cross Northwest Portland is by bicycle. Once you get above Nineteenth Avenue, the blocks elongate, and make walks across the neighborhood take that much longer. Beyond that, any driver who has gone through Northwest Portland knows the experience of finding parking in the neighborhood. It’s a series of driving in circles, false starts, and false parks, leading...

Patagonia

When you walk up to the Patagonia location in the Eco Trust building in the Pearl District, you may figure that the store has always been there, and is just one of those staple Portland brands. Just look at the impressive brick building that is a piece of the old Pearl District, from the same generation of classic warehouse structures as the Bridgeport Brewery’s building and the Gerding Theater at the Armory. Then, you go inside and see the interior of the place and...

Title Nine

Title IX was an educational amendment championed by Congresswoman Patsy Mink in the early 1970s that famously disallowed discrimination toward women in publicly funded activities such as education. The most famous outcome of this bill, though, was in after-school programs, and specifically in sports. With Title IX, women got the opportunity to participate in their own sports leagues and after-school programs, and finally had the same opportunity men had, whether it was...

Keen

Keen understands a problem that is common and plagues many Portlanders. When it comes down to it, the feet of Portlanders are just far too sensitive. Part of that is surely the amount of stress that Portlanders put on their feet. After all, all that jogging, hiking, biking, running, and playing will eventually take a lot of your feet. Many shoes aren’t designed to take the kind of beating and excitement that Portlanders put them through every day. They don’t hold...

Greenlight Bikes

Portland is pretty much the bicycling capital of the world. The city has every type of bike imaginable. There are the common bikes, of course, the road bikes and the mountain bikes. Then there are fixed-gear bikes for the enthusiasts. Of course, with such a healthy bike-modding community, Portland’s also a hotbed for tall bikes and bikes designed for jousting. There are one-wheeled bikes, two-wheeled bikes, three-wheeled bikes, and four wheeled bikes. Biking in Portland...

The North Face

Aside from Nike or various jerseys and t-shirts bearing the Blazers logo, the North Face may be the most common brand you will see in Portland, especially in the Pearl District. After all, Portlanders are fiercely protective of their outdoor excursions and worship at the temple of Mount Hood, taking every opportunity to skip off of work to make their pilgrimage to the mountain one last time in a season to see if they can just get one more good session in. One of the...

Pendleton Home

The Pendleton brand is one of the most famous ones to come out of Oregon. It is perhaps the most famous, notwithstanding a certain brand that features a swoosh on all of its items. Indeed, items from Pendleton Woolen Mills are known for their durability, their warmth, their timelessness, and their style. They have been an important part of pop culture in the more than a century since their inception, and even provided the namesake for a little band call the Pendletones....

Found right on the Green and Yellow MAX lines on Sixth Avenue, it’s easily in shredding distance from the Davis Street MAX stop. Cal Skate has been a serious presence in the history of Old Town since its inception. For more than thirty years, the ownership behind Cal Skate has been...

Portland Bicycle Studio

If there’s one things Portlanders be accused of, being serious about biking is certainly it. For many Portlanders, biking is everything. It’s exercise, it’s transportation, it’s a status symbol. Their entire being, their entire existence, is wrapped up in those two wheels and that metal frame. To steal their bicycle isn’t like removing their right arm, or their left leg, to steal their bicycle is to steal their soul, to steal their heart. Okay, that’s a little...

Europa Velo

While cruising down Nineteenth Avenue in Northwest Portland on your bicycle or in your car, there’s a certain place that catches your eye when you come to a stop at the corner of Northwest Nineteenth Avenue and Overton Street. It’s a small cottage with a sign on it that reads “Europa Velo.” It looks like an odd placement for a bicycle shop, found in tiny building that looks more like an adorable home than a mechanic, but there it is. Beyond that, it is run by...
