The article (on page 43 of the September issue) focuses on Molly’s committment to making sure nothing in her store is derived from animals. That means no leather saddles and no animal-derived proteins in the energy drinks she sells.
Along with being the only full-time employee and owner of Veloshop, Molly is doing a full schedule of races. She’s having a great year and will definitely be a rider to watch during the upcoming cyclocross season.
Next time you’re downtown, stop in to 211 SW 9th (on the same block as Rocco’s Pizza near Powell’s), check out all the cool stuff for sale and say hi.
Ironically, in the same issue (page 21) is a letter from Bike Gallery employee and Brett Fleming, who writes in to express his dislike of the term “wrench.” The 27-year veteran mechanic finds the term “borderline degrading” and prefers to be called a mechanic or technician.
NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
