Bicycles (and Cycle Fans) Check In For the Summer at Provenance Hotels in Portland
April 24, 2013 – PORTLAND, Ore. – Bike fever is hitting the nation’s most cycle friendly city this summer with the launch of the Portland Art Museum’s exhibition Cyclepedia: Iconic Bicycle Design on June 8, 2013 and Provenance Hotels, presenting sponsor of Cyclepedia, is celebrating the exhibition with breathtaking bicycle design installations in the lobbies of chic Hotel Lucia, glamorous Hotel deLuxe, the historic Governor Hotel and the sophisticated Westin Portland.
The installations, developed in coordination with the museum, connect the Cyclepedia exhibition to Portland’s uniquely passionate bike culture with each hotel artfully displaying a one-of-a-kind, custom made, bicycle from the city’s own Vanilla Bicycles. Suspended from lobby ceilings and anchored on the walls, the Cyclepedia installations at Hotel deLuxe, Hotel Lucia, the Governor Hotel and Westin Portland, sure to be must-see, will be on display for free public viewing through the run of the exhibition.
In addition to bringing bikes in off the street, Hotel Lucia, Hotel deLuxe and the Governor Hotel will offer travelers the opportunity to enjoy Cycles, Suds & Scoops, a Cyclepdia getaway package that incorporates the trifecta of Portland summertime pleasures – bikes, beer and ice cream.
Cycles, Suds & Scoops pairs luxurious overnight accommodations at Hotel Lucia, Hotel deLuxe or the Governor Hotel with two tickets to Portland Art Museum’s Cyclepedia exhibition and a hard copy of the coffee table-ready Cyclepedia: A Century of Iconic Bicycle Design by Michael Embacher, from whose personal collection the exhibition is drawn. Those who book the package will also be equipped to explore Portland’s signature summertime pleasures with a copy of Hop in the Saddle: a Guide to Portland’s Craft Beer Scene by Bike by Lucy Burningham and Ellee Thalheimer, a full-day bike rental for two and two flights of seasonal Portland craft beer-inspired ice cream at Salt & Straw, home of the city’s most acclaimed ice cream artisans.
The Cycles, Sips & Scoops package is bookable now at www.provenancehotels.com/cycles and available for stays between June 8 and September 8, 2013 at Hotel deLuxe, Hotel Lucia and Governor Hotel in downtown Portland.
