Month-long Bike Celebration in Oregon Kicks Off October 2

Just so you know, those progressive folks up in Oregon (Pro tip: they pronounce it like the instrument with keys) are kicking off a month-long celebration of one of the things that makes their state so great: its vibrant bike culture. Oregon Manifest, as it's called, will feature events and activities dedicated to "the craft and culture of cycling," including a design competition to build a better transportation bike and an exhibit on Danish cycling culture.
