The Community Cycling Center is one of Portland's coolest places. Their goal is to get a bike to every kid - regardless of whether or not they can afford it. They do this through donations of used bicycles and lots of volunteer labor refurbishing bikes. They hold cheap/free classes in bike maintenance, sponsor rides and help kids learn to be responsible riders.

They also sell parts to maintain your bike. Enter: new shifters for my recumbent! I picked up a matched pair of Suntour ratcheting shifters for a pretty fair price (more than I wanted to spend, but cheap for such a nice set of levers - I couldn't pass them up).
