Friendly Bike Guest House

The Friendly Bike Guest House is a bicycle centric house style hostel in central Portland, OR. The pricing is competitive to the traditional hostels in town and the space is brighter, newer, and just northeast of the river adobe indesign cs3 download kostenlos mac. It features a fully stocked kitchen, a dedicated indoor bike parking/lockup with an adjacent repair and maintenance area (stand, tools, lube, etc provided), and an in-house washer and dryer for after those rainy rides herunterladen. There are fewer beds so there are not as many people eating up the wireless network and, drum roll, no TV. No sitting in the kitchen eating breakfast listening to someone watching [insert least favorite show here] george app herunterladen. The house is located at 4039 N Williams skype for windows 8.1 for free. One block north of restaurants, bars, and a patisserie (more about that tomorrow). This is only half a mile east of Mississippi, another nexus of restaurants and shops film bei youtube herunterladen. Porltand is built around the idea of neighborhood services, so grocery stores are also within striking distance on foot (10-20min walk) and even easier if you have two wheels available to you netflix folgen herunterladen mac. Chris Frick, the owner of the house, lives close by, so although he is not on call, he is easily reachable if something goes wrong (like the squirrel that shorted out 10 blocks of power Tuesday morning) and is very responsive embed vimeo videos.

The Friendly Bike Guest House has only been open for a month and a half but already it is seeing some pretty good traffic. The preplanners who are attending UBI (United Bicycle Institute), which is half a block away for their bicycle mechanics and frame building classes and also the random bike tourers making their way south from Alaska macbook images.

And this is only the beginning. The Friendly Bike Guest House is the main level and basement of a two story top/bottom duplex. Now that the main level is open for business, he is starting on converting the upper story, which has been a rental up until now, to the Friendly Bike Annex facebook kopie downloaden. It will be a woman’s only hostel that will hopefully fulfill a need for female travelers that are looking for an affordable, sociable, and gender segregated short term housing option youtube treiber kostenlos downloaden. Plus, he is in talks with a bike rental place about having the ability to either have on-demand delivery of a bike (or even having some bikes stored behind locked doors) so that someone can fly in, take a cab from the airport, and have their rental bike with lock/helmet/lights/etc already staged at the house. No need to take a bus to pick it up, or have to return it when you are running late for your flight. If that is not enough for you, if you ask nicely, he might just be willing to unpack the groceries you order from New Seasons, the day before you get there, into the fridge.
