Solid Beam Lights Rock!

Tuesday, September 20th, 2016

Our single-most “liked” Instagram/Facebook/Twitter post ever.

“Likes” don’t make right, of course, but they might indicate that the message has resonated with a lot of riders who are temporarily blinded by other cyclists on paths like the Eastbank Esplanade and the Springwater Corridor.

If the people riding toward you can’t see you because your flashing strobe headlight is too bright, you’re not safe or seen.

Flashing Lights Are Blinding

Wednesday, December 16th, 2015

Our Instagram post the other day received a large number of “likes” and positive comments from as far away as London, and a lot from right here in Portland.

On a related note regarding rear lights: I remember the late Sheldon Brown telling me about “target fixation” and impaired drivers. Every since then, I’ve always avoided blinkies, and ridden with a solid red in back.

Grant Petersen at Rivelo

Monday, November 16th, 2015

Rivendell Bicycle Works founder, Grant Petersen, will be the special guest at our holiday open house on Saturday, December 5, from 1PM until 5PM.

Come by for some egg nog, cheese, and cookies.

Our logical, but not legal, address is 401 SE Caruthers St, Suite 103. We’re at the corner of SE Water Ave and Tilikum Crossing in the reddish building with the glass roll-up doors.
