The festival features 30 custom bike builders and vendors who follow the long tradition of crafting beautiful bikes by hand. Highlighting their refined craft, builders will display a wide range of bikes from road bikes to custom cargo bikes. Here’s just a few of the classic and up and coming builders you will see: Machine Cycles – Kyle Ward, Pioneer Bicycle Co – Jason Gayton, and Ahearne Cycles. Check out the list of builders and vendors here.
Hopworks will serve up our handcrafted beer alongside many of the other regional breweries that we know and enjoy. You can also expect to see beer from Widmer Brothers, Deschutes, Grain Station, Ex Novo, and others. For cider lovers we will have cider available from Cider Riot! and Reverend Nat’s. A full list of brewers will be announced soon.
Dance to the tunes of The Israelites, the legendary ska band. We’ll also have some really fun Pacific Northwest bands including There Is No Mountain, Bear Water Band, and Shake Up Bluegrass (previously Left Coast Country).
We’re bringing back the classic “Huffy Huck” bike-throwing competition. You’ll also be able to watch some amazing dance moves because the New Birth Break Dancers will put on a great show. We’re also brining back the Flatlanders, an awe-inspiring BMX stunt crew. Looking for some new activities? Try the new Tricycle Obstacle Course, a race course that features adult sized trikes.
There will be some awesome food from some of our favorite places in the city. Taco Pedaler will serve up their famous tacos, Ruby Jewel will satisfy your sweet-tooth cravings with their delicious ice cream. If that wasn’t enough, the HUB kitchen will be on-site with a variety of grilled sausages.
