Let’s get Kim Minhyeong back on the road!

July 6, 2017 at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Kim Minhyeong worked for a year in his native South Korea to save up money for his bike journey — only to have it cut short three days ago when a Portland bike thief stole his bike and all his gear: tent, clothes, tools, everything.

Kim was only 1500 miles into his epic journey from Canada to Argentina – a trip he’d been planning for a year.

As a Portlander and cyclist, this kind of theft drives me absolutely crazy — and I want to help Kim bget back on the road! A lot of other people do too!

Since local TV (KATU and KGW! thanks hugely!) covered Kim’s bike theft, a LOT of people have asked about how they can help get Kim back to his adventure. Lots of donation offers and offers to help have come in, which is great!

There’s not a lot of time to run a Gofundme or similar effort, so I figured the easiest way for people to help Kim would be to come do it in person. Let’s show Kim the real Portland – the one that takes care of fellow cyclists and bike theft victims. (Also, beer. Yay!)

So: Come help support Kim Minhyeong and help him get back on the road for his epic journey! We’ll be at Apex bar (1216 SE Division St. Portland, Oregon 97202) from 6-8pm on Thursday July 6th

This is an informal event to let Kim know there’s a lot of GOOD folks in Portland, and to let anyone who wants to help, do so in person. Questions? I’m bryan@bikeindex.org
