Portland, OR: Â Handmade bicycles and bicycle related crafts, the artisans that build them and professionals representing the craft and culture of bicycling will converge at the 3rd annual Oregon Handmade Bicycle Show October 9 & 10, 2010 at Sandbox Studio in Portland, Oregon.Â Bicycle frame building companies throughout the United States & abroad are all invited and welcome to showcase their wares alongside the best frame builders in Oregon.
In 2009, the Oregon Handmade Bicycle Show included 40 exhibitors and welcomed over 2,000 attendees for the two day event.Â The 2010 show promises to again feature the countryâ€™s finest bicycles and related artisanal bicycle products.Â This year, the show will expand to include educational programming for the professional and the public provided by Oregonâ€™s own United Bicycle Institute.
