Portland State University’s new President Wim Wiewel (pronounced “vim veeval”) should fit right in at the downtown campus.
Wiewel professed his love of bikes in recent stories published by the Oregonian and the Associated Press.
The Oregonian reported that Wiewel is from Amsterdam and that,
“he says Portland feels like home. He loves to ride bicycles, drink microbrewery beer and is used to daily forecasts of 55 degrees and rainy.”
An Associated Press story reported that the 57 year-old Wiewel,
“owns three bicycles and said he was only a little bit daunted by the hills of Portland.”
