All in Favor of 40% Discounts, Raise Your Right Hand!
Showers Pass has a discount program that should interest all of us who will be riding any time during the next five months. They offer a 40% discount on “eligible” items. Talking with them, it seems that virtually all items that are not-on-clearance are eligible.
- Complete a brief online Showers Pass application. Please note: On the form, specify that you are a member of the Portland Bicycling Club (NOT “PBC” or “Portland Bike Club,” or some other designation that a few use). If you already have a personal account at Showers Pass, this application will update your existing account; otherwise, you will create a new one. ✎
- When your application is approved (typically within a couple of days), you will receive an email or account invitation with additional details. If you have any questions, please email [email protected].
- After you receive the special cycling club code, you can purchase online at ShowersPass.com or in person at the showroom Monday through Thursday, 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM, and Friday 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM. The showroom is located at 2101 SE 6th Avenue, Portland, OR 97214. They are also eager to talk with you on the phone at 503-203-8000.
Remember, there’s no such thing as bad weather, there’s only bad gear; so, get yourself some good gear at a good price, and keep on riding!
