Can you believe we’ve survived for 10 years?

A full decade of your comments, crazy stories, controversies, tragedies, triumphs, rides, meetings… It has been one hell of a journey.

As of this morning we’ve published 11,281 Front Page stories and 307,136 comments. That’s a lot of memories!

We have so much to celebrate. Thanks in large part to your recent outpouring of support (we’re up to $16,000 and counting!), I am relieved and excited to say that BikePortland has never been stronger.

To look back at our amazing decade and start the next decade off on the right foot, please help us celebrate.

Roll on over to Velo Cult (1969 NE 42nd) on October 2nd for our 10th birthday bash.

We’ll have a cake, food, wonderful drinks of all kinds, live music, a prize raffle, a speech or two, and a whole lot more. Bring your best and worst BikePortland memories. In the spirit of how we do things around here, everyone will be welcome to step up to the mic and share their thoughts and perspectives about our little blog.

Name tags will be provided if you want to share your username in hopes of meeting your dearly beloved comment-friends.

Oh, and what’s this I hear about a new subscription program? Show up, learn all about it, and then sign-up to help us keep BikePortland strong for another 10 years.

You are all such a huge part of what we do that I couldn’t imagine marking this milestone without you.

NOTE: We love your comments and work hard to ensure they are productive, considerate, and welcoming of all perspectives. Disagreements are encouraged, but only if done with tact and respect. If you see a mean or inappropriate comment, please contact us and we'll take a look at it right away. Also, if you comment frequently, please consider holding your thoughts so that others can step forward. Thank you — Jonathan
