Oregon Manifest, here we come!

“The utility bike is the transportation mode of the future for millions of Americans who want to live healthier, more sustainable lives, but don’t think of themselves as ‘cyclists.’ The key to realizing this future is thoughtful, innovative bike design that fills multiple needs and fits into their lives.”

So reads Oregon Manifest’s 2011 challenge. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. And so Joe Bike has teamed up with Antload to enter the Oregon Manifest design competition, which will culminate in an exhibition of the work of some three dozen builders, along with a road test and vote in September.

Stay tuned for little bits of information from us about the bicycle-of-the-future that we’re building. And see OregonManifest.com for more information.
