Happy Touring!


For the Month of September, great deals for your back-to-school preparations!

As always, we provide a free 30-day tuneup with all new bike purchases, and we’ll do free installation of accessories (racks, fenders, etc) with any new bike!



Sunday Parkways!

We had a wonderful time at Sunday Parkways, another lovely late August ride around Southeast Portland.  This year we had a Wild West theme, live music and Deejay, free snacks and beverages, a Bicycle-powered hayride, free mechanical checks, and our most excellent Street Sprinkler.  Fun!

Eat a Better Bar


Now, we don’t usually offer energy bars at Citybikes.  When Brody came in with his better bars, our chorus was “YUM”.  They are locally made, super tasty, energy-riffic, reasonably priced, Dark Chocolate or Goji Berry, and they even come in a compostable package!  We’re eating them up ourselves, and selling them like hotcakes.  Right now we just have them at the Annex (734 SE Ankeny), but soon at both shops.
