Bicycle enthusiasts in Portland had their chance to shine this weekend, as the second Oregon Manifest Constructor Design Challenge and Constructor''s Race kicked off six weeks of events celebrating urban bicycling culture.

The challenge tasked designers to conceptualize, create and race their own fully functional bicycles that would then transport the creators, or a designated rider of their choosing, across a 77-mile course replete with difficult terrain and sectional challenges to keep racers occupied.

"If the bicycle is ever to realize its potential to change the urban transportation landscape – and mindset – it''ll take a bike that can multi-task the demands of everyday urban transport," claims Jocelyn SyCip, director of the Oregon Manifest. "The Constructor''s Design Challenge is a unique way to jump start the conversation about what constitutes a great, modern, all-around transportation bike."

The top 12 winners, judged on a wide array of criteria ranging from presentation and execution to utility and portability, will be displayed in the Oregon manifest Bike Union for five weeks and see their designs featured in an upcoming coffee table-book, with first place taking home a unique three-piece suit designed by Rapha and Timothy Everest.
