When I first moved to Portland I found myself bike-less for a brief period of time. Fortunately, my friend Julia graciously loaned me her 1980's Bianchi steel road bike to use until I found one of my own. 

It was love at first ride for me. I loved the down tube shifting, I loved celeste color, I loved how speedy it made me feel, I loved how it felt to ride. It was on that bike that I first explored Portland's streets by bike, that I went on my first Pedalpalooza ride, that I went on the first date with my fella... I fell in love with this city on that bike. 

It's for that reason, among others, that I'm incredibly excited to share with you all that when we re-open later this month Gladys Bikes will be Portland's newest dealer of Bianchi Bicycles. Bring on the celeste!

 Welcome to Gladys, Bianchi!
