Promote bicycle rights by bicycling right …on a Portlandia bike from Republic Bikes.

Republic Bikes made an awesome ride for the eco-conscious Portlandia fan who is eager to ride around on some sweet swag while declaring their Portlandia fandom by hollering “Bicycle Rights!” at everyone who dares cross their path. According to the Republic Bikes website, bicycling is everything Portlandia is: healthy, green, fun and loaded with opportunities for smug self-satisfaction. Yeah, no one on one of these roadsters would forget their bag at the grocery store. Designed by Portlandia stars and co-creators Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, the Limited Edition Portlandia Aristotle (also available in a Mixte), features integrated cargo bars and birds. Yes, there’s a bird on it.

So go check them out and practice yelling along with Spyke. Then be sure to tune in to the Portlandia season finale on Friday at 10/9c:

We knew it was going to happen. It was expected. That doesn’t mean we’re not thrilled to see Saturday Night Live’s Bill Hader making a guest appearance on Portlandia’s season finale, which airs this Friday at 10/9c.

In this trailer for the Portlandia season finale, the show pays homage to “Lost,” which is no Battlestar Galactica, but is still one of the best shows around. In Portlandia’s finale, chaos ensues when the city’s electricity bill is not paid and the whole town is left in complete darkness after the Mayor (Kyle MacLachlan) resigns. All of Portlandia’s favorite characters are forced to embark on a journey to get through the blackout and restore order. Leading the pack is a mysterious Aussie visitor to Pete and Nance’s new bed and breakfast named, Mr. Birdman (Bill Hader).

Watch the trailer for the very dramatic season finale of Portlandia and be sure to tune in on Friday at 10/9c:

It’s a reverse “Stand & Deliver” in the latest clip from Portlandia

We all know the cinematic trope: A teacher comes to a school and inspires his students not just to academic success, but to greatness and fulfillment and a better life. That story arc has created some of the most memorable movie moments from the students in “Dead Poets Society” standing on their desks and declaring “O Captain, My Captain!” or Edward James Olmos delivering a stirring speech to his students in “Stand And Deliver.” In this new clip from Portlandia, however, we see that sometimes it’s not the teachers who inspire change, it’s the students. Especially when it comes to progressive, practical students who just can’t stomach watching their sad sack teacher flounder in the trenches and eating limp American cheese sandwiches alone at their desk. Aim higher! Study marketing!

Watch this clip and be inspired to make change in someone else’s life and be sure to tune in for the season finale of Portlandia on Friday at 10/9c:
