Keep your eyes peeled for this unique bike that was stolen from North Portland last night. (Photos: Johnnie Olivan/Rejuiced Bikes)
A local bike builder who received a $15,000 grant back in March to build a fleet of ‘bike cars’ has had the first working prototype stolen from his front yard in North Portland last night/this morning.
Johnnie Olivan of Rejuiced Bikes has spent months working on his custom, three-wheeled bike that has a ramp in the rear for wheelchair access. Olivan gave test-rides on the bike at the City of Portland’s Adaptive Bike Clinic held back in May. The bike is made for three people: Two that pedal on each side and one person in a wheelchair that rolls up a ramp in the rear and powers the bike with a hand-crank.

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 class 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.
