The Community Cycling Center and their partners are busy in North Portland today putting on the finishing touches to the new “bike hub” coming to the New Columbia neighborhood. The design/build project began just two weeks ago and the big grand opening is slated for tomorrow evening.
Dubbed simply “The Hub,” the CCC says the new building will, “provide affordable repairs, free advice, and act as a community resource center for all sorts of bicycle-based activities at New Columbia.”
The CCC’s Communications and Marketing Manager Melinda Musser says so far the work has gone all according to plan. She also wants to remind the community that they are still hoping to reach their $15,000 fundraising goal by tomorrow. Since August 10th, they’ve raised nearly $9,000. If they can reach $10,000, Bike Gallery will throw in a $5,000 gift and get them to the goal. They’re accepting donations online, so click over and drop a few bucks into this important and exciting project.
The ribbon-cutting is set for tomorrow evening from 5:30 to 7:00. Site tours and speakers are planned and there will be cake and free flat tire repair. Stay tuned for a full report and make sure you donate!
