Q&A: Take a Tour of Waterfront Bikes

This May, we’ve partnered with Waterfront Bikes, a local Portland bike shop, to help you ‘gear up’ for National Bike Month. Most PDXers know this local shop, but did you also know they’re family-owned AND family-run? Our Q&A session with shop owner Karen Stiles gives a quick tour of a Portland bike shop that sets itself apart with lots of options and friendly, personalized service (sound familiar?).

How long has Waterfront Bikes been in business?
We have been in business for 16 years.

Can you tell us a little bit about your store?
We are a small, friendly shop located on the downtown waterfront. We service the local community selling new and used bikes and repairing almost every type of bicycle. We are also very busy with folks visiting our city, as we have a complete line of rental bikes. We enjoy talking bikes, and rides, and always enjoy helping people navigate the city by bike. We have recently started doing some exclusive small tours that really focus on the Wine Country.

What are some of the benefits of purchasing a bike with Waterfront Bikes?
We are a local family-owned shop and so we really know our customers. Every bike is built and assembled with care and fitted for comfort. Each new bike purchase comes with 10% off any additional gear. We also include a free yearly tune-up (excluding parts) which adds to the value of your purchase and keeps the bike in good working order.

What do you love about bikes?
I love that bikes allow you to really explore places in ways that are all-encompassing. You can ride many miles in a day, or just take in a few, and learn so much about places. I love that bikes are green and that interconnectedness with the world is enhanced while riding on a physical level too. I love that you move fast enough to get somewhere but slow enough to see and hear new things that you wouldn’t experience in a car.

What’s your favorite local bike ride?
I love the East Side Neighborhood ride. It allows me to explore the neighborhoods at my leisure stopping at fun locations for a cup of tea, bite to eat, or a beer. Its fun to feel the city at a cycling pace and see and hear all the local activities. Riding into parks along the way–sometimes through Laurelhurst Park or up Mt Tabor–is always so relaxing. It’s just a great way to spend the day!

USACU Wins Two National Awards

CUNA Diamond AwardsUSAgencies Credit Union was recently honored with two Diamond Awards, which recognize outstanding marketing and business development achievements in the credit union industry.

The awards were presented by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Marketing & Business Development Council, a national network comprised of over 1,200 credit union marketing and business development professionals. Awards are given in each of 30 categories ranging from advertising to community events and beyond.

USAgencies Credit Union won both the ‘Annual Report’ and ‘One-Time Event’ categories for their 2015 Annual Report and 80 Years! Event. Both the report and event proudly celebrated USAgencies’ 80th year in operation, and featured information about the Credit Union’s history and rich community involvement, as well as highlighted the fundamental credit union mission of ‘People Helping People.’

“The credit union industry has no shortage of marketing and business development talent, but, as the name of the prize suggests, these professionals shine the brightest,” said Amber Scott, Chair of the CUNA Marketing & Business Development Council’s Diamond Awards Committee and VP Marketing & Communications at 1st MidAmerica CU. “Bold, inventive and fearless in the face of uncertainty, the 2017 Diamond Award winners inspire us to aim higher and try new approaches.”

Award winners were recognized at the council’s 24th annual conference held March 29-April 1 in San Antonio, Texas. For more information on the Diamond Awards or to view the entire list of winners, go to www.cunacouncils.org/awards.
