Velo Cirque: A Modern & Vintage Custom Bike Show (Portland)
November 12 - 13, 2016
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions.

Join Velo Cult for a weekend full of amazing bikes! Collectors and framebuilders alike will be showcasing and displaying their favorite bikes for all of Portland to see! This will be a quarterly event from here on out. $5 at the door.
On Saturday at 10 am we will be doing a small and fairly simple ride on vintage bikes. Bring anything vintage. At 3 pm starts the show at Velo Cult and it goes til 8 pm but we close at 10pm so people are welcome to stay and hang out. We ask all people to bring only one bike and one bike stand. If you have more bikes, just bring out a different bike each quarter we host this event. We ask that frame of the bike be build by a custom frame builder. Could be BMX, road, touring, MTB, or anything else custom made. Typically bikes in this category would be built before 1990 or so.
On Sunday is an idea I have had for a while and finally bring it together. It’s the Modern custom frame show. This is from 3 pm to 8 pm. The frame can be really any type of bike but it needs to be built by a custom frame builder who is still currently taking orders. Custom frame builders are welcome to come too but it’s just one bike per person and please have a stand for it. Just to be strait, a custom frame was built to custom specs, not a production or semi-production frame.
