Southeast Portlanders and well-wishers from all over town helped welcome a new bike shop to the neighborhood last night. Splendid Cycles, a new shop on SE Belmont at 14th that specializes in cargo bikes, held its opening night bash.
The HUB Beer Bike by Metrofiets was on hand to provide music and cold beer and a crowd that included owner Joel Grover's dad, friends of Joel and his wife Barb, and cargo bike enthusiasts, took a closer look at what Splendid has to offer.
Grover is looking to be the go-to shop for cargo bikes from Metrofiets, Larry vs. Harry, and Joseph Ahearne's new Cycle Truck. The way Grover sees it, there are plenty of Portlanders ready and will to replace their car (or one of their cars) with a high-quality cargo bike.
See more of the bikes and the crowd in the slideshow below and be sure to stop by Splendid Cycles next time you're in the neighborhood.
