Portland, Or 8/16/2010. On September 11th Universal Cycles will hold its first ever sidewalk sale at its Portland retail store With 5% of all sales on Saturday will go to the NW Trail Alliance (NWTA). We are clearing out our old inventory that we donʼt want or have room for anymore and there will be great deals to be had, tons of rims, tires, wheels and other odds and ends will be going for ridiculous prices and all of it to benefit trails in the northwest.
As Universal Cycles expands its parts selection we need room in the warehouse, so old stock that is no longer on the website needs to go and the stuff will be priced to move. So while we are clearing out some old inventory we thought it would be a great time to have a benefit for local trails and the NWTA is regional advocacy group dedicated to getting new trails opened up here in the NW for mountain bikers. The NWTA will have a booth set up at the sale to make it easier for people to sign up and become members of the NWTA or donate to them.
For the big event we will have extended hours on Saturday, we will be open 10am to 6pm and will have a few other things happening as well that day so be sure to stop by and see what we have cooking. Come and clean us out of some great old inventory and help out trails in the NW at the same time. Tom Slovak who is the Trail care director at NWTA had this to say about the event “I’m excited that Universal Cycles is providing this opportunity to benefit Northwest Trail Alliance by donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale. It’s great when local businesses support our efforts and I hope that Universal Cycles and NWTA can build upon this relationship going forward.” Our retail location is 1820 NW 18th Ave., located on the corner of 18th and Thurman just north of the Pearl District.
