new location on N. Williams.
United Bicycle Institute (UBI) is all moved into their new satellite campus in North Portland (they also have a campus in Ashland) and this Saturday they'll throw the doors open and welcome the community with an Open House event.
According to UBI's John Baxter, the school -- which has taught over 12,000 students from 50 states and over 40 countries -- taught their first session back on September 28th. UBI is a state licensed vocational school that teaches courses in bike repair, shop operation and framebuilding.
The open house is a part of the six-week Oregon Manifest and is slated to include facility tours, a garage sale, and a custom bike raffle. Manifest organizers say UBI will raffle off (via $10 tickets) two bike frames (one of them will feature Shimano components, a Chris King headset, and a paint job from Coat) made by UBI instructors and the proceeds will benefit the Community Cycling Center's Holiday Bike Drive.
Let's give UBI and nice, warm, hearty Portland welcome!
