Shop Visit: Velo Cult

Velo Cult is easily one of my favorite shops in the States and their recent move to Portland from San Diego was far from easy on the guys but it’s been worth it. Their massive, sprawling storefront has a bar, a huge basement with a movie theater and one of the classiest mechanics area I’ve ever seen.

When they made the move, Sky and Anthony were literally selling bikes to build millwork. It’s been a slow process but the community is embracing these SoCal natives. If you’re in the Portland area, swing through, grab a beer, chat about touring, gravel and the next rando and if you can’t make it to Portland, check out my Shop Visit photos. And if you missed the Recent Roll, check it out here.

Recent Roll: Velo Cult

If there’s one thing shooting with the Hasselblad has taught me it’s selection. Velo Cult‘s new location in Portland is far too massive to capture in a roll (or in this case, less than a half of a roll) but I feel like these photos pick up on some of the highlights. For those who want a more comprehensive Photoset, don’t fret, digital is on the way. It just so happened that the analog photos were done before the digital.

This shop needs no introduction but for those looking for a background, I do believe Velo Cult’s San Diego space was one of my first Shop Visits. Check the original photos out here.

Portland Is…
18040001

… Beautiful. We’ve spent the past few days exploring within the city and out of the city, trekking out to Horsetail Falls and various other trails. We’ve seen many great shops and met some brilliant people. While I’m collecting photos, I figured I’d share a few off a roll of film I just got back from the Hasselblad.

Today a small group is heading out on a century through the country roads and into Hood River. I’ll be away from the computer all day, but will have my 35mm on me, so expect some great photos from our ride. Posts will resume on Wednesday, including some from Hufnagel Cycles!

Velo Cult Grand Opening in Portland
VC_opening-Crop

Velo Cult left the sunny beaches of San Diego for Portland’s bridges, frame builders and coffee. On March 24th, their new space will be unveiled and knowing what the old shop looked like, the one in Portland is bound to be even better. I’m going to try my best to make it to Portland next month!

For full details, see the flier below.
