    Portland, OR Airport Bike assembly Area

    The Portland Airport has just opened a room with a work stand and tools for travelers with bikes, here's the article.

    Would you use this?

    That's awesome. I would certainly use it if I flew into Portland, I always assemble my bike when I arrive at an airport, usually just in some corner.

    Just another reason to give Portland the stink-eye. At least we -finally- have a light rail from the airport to downtown. (Seattle)

    Yes, I frequently get a few curious onlookers when I take my Bike Friday out of its suitcase and start to assemble it and its trailer/case. Haven't flown into Portland, but I presume it has reasonable routes for biking to/from the airport. Quite a few airports are not very bike friendly and at those I sometimes hop on the first courtesy bus to some nearby hotel to do the assembly there.

    But at an airport with good bike access I'd certainly appreciate having a place that's set up for convenient bike assembly/disassembly.

    Awesome - as a frequent visitor to the states, I found Portland to be about the friendliest and most progressive place in the US. The only place I have been where homeland security were cracking jokes at the airport. Only a shame I did not have my bike with me!
