IT’S HAPPENING FRIDAY!
Only days to go until the Oregon Manifest CONSTRUCTOR’S DESIGN CHALLENGE entrants descend on Portland, Oregon with their idea of a better bike for the everyday rider – The Ultimate Utility Bike.

Finishing touches are happening right now, with each bike being readied for its grand entrance before the judges on Friday. Cargo bikes, daily commuters, transport bikes….each entrant has answered the design criteria with their own design approach and lifestyle accommodations. Best of luck to everyone!

FRIDAY NIGHT REVEAL + SATURDAY FINISH LINE BLOCK PARTY!
Join us Friday night in the Commons of Pacific Northwest College of Art for the public viewing of the entry bikes and the reveal of the Oregon Manifest Field Test produced by our friends of Cyclepath.

On Saturday, join us at the Chris King factory in NW Portland for a block party at the Field Test finish line. A true celebration, this party will feature music from local favs THE DIMES, CELILO, and THE RAVISHERS. The Hopworks Beer Bike will be in the house dispensing libations, and the Levi’s® and Urban Outfitters Bike Shop will be offering free tuning and tailoring for attendees and their bikes.

Winners will be announced at 6pm.
