Cool Portland Links

These are a few of my favorite Portland things (in alphabetical order):

  • Bicycle Transportation Alliance = non-profit bicycle advocacy
  • Bike Gallery = locally owned chain of bicycle shops – good option for buying a new bicycle.
  • Bike Portland blog = All bike news all the time
  • Buttercup = Portland’s tallest boy band. Fast, original rock & roll played at reasonably high volumes.
  • Centaur Guitars = coolest guitar store in town
  • The Community Project = website featuring the cool work of people who ride bikes (Portland, Denver and beyond)
  • M-tone Guitars = stellar electric guitars designed and made in SE Portland by Matt Proctor
  • Mt. Tabor City Park = glorious park built on a dormant volcano
  • Oregon Bike Shop = funky little repair shop in the Montavilla/Mt. Tabor area that can fix your funky old bike really well and for a good price. They have some used and new bikes for sale too.
  • The Portland Outsider = magazine focused on homesteading, health and the urban outdoors
