Go By Bike Shop
From Portland Afoot
Go By Bike Shop is a bicycle repair cart in the South Waterfront that opened in August 2011. Based at the bottom of the Portland Aerial Tram, it was the first bike business in a neighborhood built for heavy bicycle traffic. It's a venture of Kiel Johnson, a Bicycle Transportation Alliance employee, former OHSU intern and the creator of Bike Train PDX.
"Steady stream of business, tons of great feedback, and I suspect it's saved a few a bicyclists from having to take an impromptu bus ride home," wrote Landolfe. "We're investigating ways to extend the service."
Landolfe, who had previously pitched the idea of such a business to readers of BikePortland.org, called OHSU commuters "the biggest concentration of bicyclists with buying power in the city (if we assume that PSU students are more broke than OHSU researchers)."
 Origin of name
BikePortland.org reported that Johnson had been inspired by a 2007 BikePortland post in which Jonathan Maus wrote that "the time has come to figure out how to get a 'Go by Bike' sign" in Portland, to match Radio Cab's "Go By Cab," Union Station's "Go by Train" and the Pearl District's "Go By Streetcar."
