Breadwinner Cycles started in 2012. Since then Tony Pereira and Ira Ryan have had the vision not only create beautiful custom bicycles but to create a place where they could share what had always happened behind garage doors. Until late 2017, when they opened the doors of the Breadwinner Cafe, this vision lay dormant. They wanted a place to showcase the process of building Breadwinner Cycles, to meet up for rides, have great coffee, enjoy delicious ride food and to nerd out on handmade steel bikes.
The Grand Opening Celebration is a day where we welcome friends, cyclists and coffee lovers beyond the cafe walls. We will not only pull the curtain back from the grand window between the cafe and shop, we’ll be offering a brazing demonstration, process tour in the shop, a group ride and food and drinks. We are also giving thanks to all the friends, family and tradespeople who have cut concrete, scrape carpet glue, designed furniture, offered encouraging words and helped navigate city code. They couldn’t have done it without the help of the community.
*Group Ride will be an easy 2-hour through North Portland past Kelley Point Park. We will leave the cafe at 1pm sharp and plan on regrouping a few times along the route. Please wear a helmet, bring a spare tube/tools and be dressed for any weather.
