[Publisher’s Note: The audio slideshow below was created by new BikePortland contributor Russ Roca. This is the second of our new Pedal People series (the first few just happen to focus on BikeCraft vendors). Russ is amazing at telling people’s story and we’re excited to be working with him to share more profiles of interesting and inspiring Portlanders. If you or your company are interested in sponsoring the Pedal People series, please contact our sales manager Jonathan Reed.]
And now, our feature presentation: A behind the scenes (and in his own words) look at Geoff Franklin of Walnut Architecture and Design Studio. Geoff was a huge hit at last year’s BikeCraft with his hand-made leather bike accessories, and based on what you’ll see below, I think he’ll attract a lot of attention again this year.
BikeCraft 2010 is December 4-5th. Learn more and sign-up to be a vendor (some space still available!), sponsor, or volunteer via our online sign-up form on the BikeCraft Page.
