This Thursday, several bike companies based in southeast Portland will host a showing of Brian Vernor’s film We Just Work Here as part of the Oregon Manifest.

Portland Design Works, Ruckus Components, Showers Pass, and Tonic Fabrication will host the event which will also be a benefit for the Oregon Food Bank.

Dan Powell from Portland Design Works says they hope the event showcases the “spirit of bicycle entrepreneurship” that is alive and well in Portland. “As companies that contribute to the thriving cycling industry here in Portland, we hope to bring together a group of like minded people to share in a fun evening of local community and bicycle celebration.”

We Just Work Here is a film about California-based bike maker, Santa Cruz Bicycles. It chronicles the company’s “culture of riding and disparate talents of the employees.”

In addition to a night of talking bikes, raising money (and food) for a great cause, and drinking fine local beer, there will also be a sneak preview of Vernor’s new cyclocross film (which will debut this December in Bend during the Cyclocross National Championships).

Check out a trailer of the film below.
