In 2007 I learned about Shift a Portland based non-profit dedicated to helping facilitate bike fun. I started going on rides, attending events and experiencing bike fun in a way that made me feel better about myself and the community I live in. Most importantly, I made some great friends. One midnight mystery ride lead to another and soon enough I had experienced zoobomb. I joined the Bicycle Transportation Alliance, experienced my first Multnomah Co. Bike Fair, and let Pedalpalooza take advantage of me. Riding around with friends and sharing these experiences lead to the start of a business model – leading sightseeing and local culture tours -European style -here in Portland, Oregon.
