Oregon Manifest 2008

Oregon Manifest is now in the books. We had a crisp, sunny, fall weekend to explore Portland’s bike friendly roads and bridges on Yodelicious, the Yahoo mobile blogging bike. Time and again, interested passerbys inquired about Yode. The overwhelming response was “Wait, it’s taking photos and posting them to Flickr? Cool!”
The show itself was more intimate than NAHBs and beautiful work was on display from Map Cycles, Huffnagel, Goodtimes, Ahearne, Scyip and others. I was particularly impressed that the show included more than the frame building community. Local bike artisans had their wares on display like Lemolo Bags, and Rainy Peak Cycles. Aptly named, Teem Beer, ran the beer garden and dressed the part. The Oktoberfest inspired Bike Lederhosen seen here, are hemmed with tubing. Check out our Flickr Set with more photos from the opening night party at Wieden + Kennedy, and the show floor.

Riding the Dragon’s Back

Tuscany Tour: Day One

The La Strada del Vino climbs steadily up the into the Tuscan hills through various medievel villages, winneries, then back down endless curves and towards the coast. Both of us said, “wow; well that was cool; whoa – best ride ever,” as we carved the turns like we were in a pro race. We dove into the apex, no brakes, and out the other side with a few hard pedal strokes. Later at dinner, I described the descent as “riding a dragon’s back.” The Tuscan dragon has 108 curves in an 8 kilometer descent.

Pizza by Bike

While in Portland for Oregon Manifest, the Bike Huggers picked up a slice at Old Town Pizza. If you lived nearby you could have your pie delivered by bakfiet. This photo was taken by the yahoo mobile blogging bike. Follow Yodelicious’s adventures online, after the jump.

Yahoo Purple Pedals Bike

Bikehugger took possession of this Yahoo Purple Pedals Bike named Yodelicious, and we’ve been riding it around Seattle. We’re excited to take it down to Oregon Manifest this weekend. If you see us in Portland say Hello, and wave to the camera. You can track us real time while we’re in Portland after the jump.
