Creativity reigns at Summer BikeCraft: Coming this Saturday!

Shaun Deller’s hats are back!

Pedalpalooza culminates this Saturday (6/27) with the infamous, one-of-a-kind Multnomah County Bike Fair. I know, you’re sad because that means eleven long months of waiting for next year will commence — but, you can keep the spirit alive, and remind yourself and the world of your love for bike fun. Come check out some of the unique goods from our BikeCrafters who will be selling their wares in the BikeCraft section of the MCBF Midway.

Summer BikeCraft at the Bike Fair is going to be awesome.

Last month we highlighted some of the amazing, creative Portland-based crafters who are planning to bring their bike accessories and bike themed crafts. See a few more pics of what’s in store, and a full list of confirmed crafters below the jump.
