On September 2nd they’ll host an event called “Bikes and Brews”. Widmer spokesperson Mindy Green says from 5:30 – 8:00 they’ll have bike-related exhibitors, beer specials and a raffle throughout the day “to patrons with helmets”. Among the raffle prizes are four entry passes to the 2010 Cycle Oregon Weekend Ride.
The new corral is the 21st on-street bike parking facility installed by the Bureau of Transportation. It features 10 staples and has capacity for 20 bicycles. The racks were funded by the Portland Development Commission through their Interstate Corridor Urban Renewal Area program and are part of the Russell Streetscape Plan.
Widmer Brothers Brewing is a longtime supporter of local bike advocacy efforts from Cycle Oregon and the Bicycle Transportation Alliance. In December 2008, we profiled their entire building devoted to employee bike parking.
We’ll keep you posted on this event as more details get ironed out.
