THE SUPPENKÜCHE CARGOBIKE

Was born in Portland, Oregon.

With beautiful work from the artisan bike builders Metrofiets, wheels built by Jude at Epic Wheel Works, our new friends at Splendid Cycles, and the generous help of Shimano (who supplied the Cargobike’s XTR Yumeya mtb components), as well as support from our other great sponsors, the Suppenküche’s Kunstplatz was able to create and ride a unique Cargobike 204 miles over two days in the annual Seattle to Portland bicycle ride for Health (known as the STP) – fully loaded. Both days the bike carried a case (24) of Radeberger Pilsner, some OW Socks and a Portland-sourced full picnic lunch from Ken’s Artisan BakeryOlympic Provisions and Edelweiss Deli. We finished in just under 20 hours (over the two days) with zero mecanical problems.

We encourage you to click on any of the images for an extended gallery and more details about the ride and the bike.

RIDING IS SUPER RAD

SUPER RAD! – EXTENDED

Summer is here and our I Bike SF promotion in May was such a success we have extended the offer – ride a bike to the Suppenküche and get 25% off a Radler, or Radeberger Pilsner + a free gift – indefinitely! We have also upgraded the gift to be more bicycle friendly and easy to use (we had such a huge response we ran out of the old ones) … All you need to do is ride to the restaurant on a bicycle and let the bartender or your server know you did to claim your prize. Offer good any time.
– Radler Willkommen (riders welcome).

BIG GAME YEAR

May 15th, 2010 marked the 17th anniversary of the Suppenküche. The year’s theme is Big Game (commemorating this year’s World Cup Soccer match in South Africa). Hunter and Hunted danced into the night at our annual costume party, and once again our Kunstplatz has designed a limited edition Tshirt (now available – for the first time – online at Neverever Things) as well as special 17 year coasters (available at the bar). Our birds have even dressed the part, playing a soccer match on the ceiling to mark the occasion in true Suppenküche style. Click on the photo above to see more images from the celebration.

PHIL WOOD. CHAPEAU!

On March 14th we lost an icon in the world of cycling, Phil Wood (born July 9th, 1926 in Kingstown, Indiana). He is the man responsible for inventing sealed hubs and bottom brackets, as well as creating some of the most beautiful, the most loved and undoubtably the best made bicycle hardware in the world. We have specially painted and proudly hung one of our Radvögel (bicycle-birds) in his honor. Thank you Phil, you and your creations are amazing, you will be missed.
