Coworkers, volunteers, customers, patrons, donors, supporters of all kind: I started working at the Portland Gear Hub a little over two years ago. I was over the moon about getting hired at such a cool shop with a fantastic mission. Over the last two years, I have worked with hundreds of volunteers to further that mission. Over the last two years, I have helped countless people find outdoor equipment, and especially bikes, that will get them outdoors. I have connected with so many wonderful people in new and surprising ways, made acquaintances and friends.
I have grown in many ways as well. When I first started, I had some very basic mechanical skills. Ainsley and Tucker patiently and attentively helped me build that knowledge and become the bike mechanic that I am today. Volunteer Nights have been a blast, thank you to all of our volunteers who make Wednesday nights so much fun.
Today was my last shift at the Portland Gear Hub, next week I leave for an epic biking adventure, the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route. If anybody wants to see what is happening on my trip, check out bicykyleontour over on Instagram. Thank you to all who have been a part of the Portland Gear Hub. This is a truly special place, and I look forward to seeing what it grows into over the next years. In the meantime, get outside!

It was good to see you today in Cape E, I had no idea this was the day.. THANK YOU for all you did, and all you do, for making bicycling fun, making healthy activities interesting and for making repairs less stressful for people of all abilities.
Kyle! Sooo excited for your epic adventure! Make the most of every day, every mile, every moment. Expect to shed tears at least once because things are hard, and expect to also shed tears at least once because you are so overwhelmed by the beauty around you and the joy you're experiencing. Your journey will be life-changing and will be carried with you beyond the finish. I wish you the very best of all of it! - Thank you for your service with the Gear Hub. It was a joy to work with you!
I'm so excited for you!! Can't wait to follow your adventures...be safe and have fun! Thanks for getting me back on a bike! 😊
I hope you have a great trip!
