Bicycle-based business seminar at Cush Cafe organized by Clayton Williams

See also

Clayton Williams organized a "TED-talks style" gathering (at Cush Cafe in Eugene) of bicycle-based entrepreneurs who shared their experiences in round-table fashion. The event featured a raffle of multiple bicycle-related items, including a grand prize of a high-quality trail bicycle.

In early March (at Cush Cafe), the gathering featured bicycle repair on-call, bicycle-powered power for stage and sound amplification, courier/delivery service, pedi-cab, delivery, food service, and other successful bike-base business ventures, and introduced Clayton's plan to start a bicycle-based bicycle repair service. Representatives from Center for Appropriate Transportation (CAT), Hummingbird Wholesale, and other on-going entrepreneurships shared visions and experiences.

These two videos of the talks are not the highest quality video, but the information on the feasibility and success of these businesses is intriguing and fascinating.

The event opened with acoustic music from Jake, Amanda, and Kyle, billed for the evening as "Ups-a-Daisy." After talks were completed, another set of music was presented featuring mostly originals of Joe Goodwin, with Randy accompanying on bass and occasional back-up vocal. An intermission in the set accommodated the raffle, a fun event that left everyone smiling, with many happy recipients of various prizes, including the grand prize of the bicycle mentioned above. (Music vids from the evening should be available soon. Watch for notice from this site.)

Please check out the vids from the presentations. This is an amazing, positive, healthy movement going on here.
