The list of after-parties and events going on after the lights go out at the North American Handmade Bicycle Show (NAHBS, February 8-10) is growing every day.
I haven’t had a chance to pull all the events together in one place yet (will do that soon), but I want to suggest a special get together on Saturday night that is near and dear to my heart. Read the flyer closely and you’ll find out why:
On Saturday night (2/9), local bike industry sales rep Michael Kloeppel has planned a benefit party for BikePortland.org (you might remember Michael from his amazing stolen bike recovery story I shared back in July).
Michael has worked with his clients and industry contacts to offer not just $2.50 New Belgium pints, but a slew of schwag from the likes of Ortlieb (messenger bags), Keen (shoes), SRAM (a Rock Shox Fork), Castelli, Maverick, Zipp, Vittoria, and even massages from Michael’s sister, Gretchen Kloeppel, LMT.
To win, all you’ve got to do is show up and buy a few $1 raffle tickets (all ticket proceeds will go to The BikePortland.org Survival Fund).
I hope we can pack the place. Won’t you join us?
Here are the details:
BikePortland.org Benefit/NAHBS After-Party
Plan B, 1308 SE 8th Street
Saturday (2/9), (9:00pm)
[P.S. Michael, thanks for putting this together!]
