25 Ways You’re Riding Your Bike “Right”

Too many folks are nervous about riding because they don't want to do it "wrong." The truth is, there are a million awesome ways to ride your bike. Here's a very non-comprehensive list.

You’re doing something “right” if you’re:

1. Having fun

2. Getting where you need to go

3. Going at your own pace

4. Wearing whatever makes you comfortable

5. Paying attention to your surroundings

6. Aware of biking laws, or planning to learn soon

7. A first-time rider

8. Visiting the city

9. Respectful of pedestrians

10. An athlete

11. Riding with friends

12. A fair-weather rider

13. Exploring new neighborhoods

14. Carrying cargo or pulling a trailer

15. Riding an e-bike

16. A fixie hipster

17. Not sure how to fix a flat, but know who to ask (B4H maybe?)

18. A kid

19. Using your best judgment

20. Wearing a costume

21. Riding an unusual or adaptive bike

22. Considering the safety and comfort of others

23. A year-round commuter

24. Starting to get the hang of it

25. Not feeling comfortable but trying anyway

Summer in Gresham

Find us this summer in Main City Park! We're partnering with the City of Gresham to offer our usual mission and services -- bike repairs, workshops, donations, and sales -- to Gresham residents and Springwater riders.

Whether it's a flat tire, a broken chain, or not having a bike at all from keeping someone from making their bike dreams come true this summer, we want to eliminate those barriers, and we need your help!

We'll be there every 1st and 3rd Wednesday from 2 - 6pm:

  • 2 - 6pm - Open repair clinic, connecting the public with our volunteers, staff and resources
  • 6 - 8pm - Mechanics workshops to teach basic repair skills and train potential volunteers

This partnership has been in the making for a while, and we're super excited to expand access to biking in areas that are less well served by existing bike programs and services.

Please come join us! We could use your help, whether that's wrenching on bikes, chatting with the public about our mission, leading Springwater rides, or helping with donations and sales.

We're hiring

We're looking for a shop host to help us expand our open hours. This community-minded and proactive person would help direct volunteers, take in donations, communicate our mission, and sell bikes, parts, and accessories. 

We strive to be an inclusive space where everyone feels welcome. Members of underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply. Feel free to send any questions to alex@b4hpdx.org
