Reminder: Rough Stuff Ramble is Sunday June 16

It's time again for one of my favorite types of rides: The Urban Ramble. The Rough Stuff Ramble is a ride evoking the spirit of the Rough Stuff Fellowship, a UK based cycling society dedicated to getting off the beaten path. There’s plenty of “pockets of country” that can be found without leaving the city… Continue reading Reminder: Rough Stuff Ramble is Sunday June 16

Central Oregon Tour: The Last Day (Wednesday May 22)

Last time I left off with finally finding a place to stay in Prineville for the night. The weather forecast did not seem like it was going to improve much, so I contacted the bus/shuttle company I had a booking with on Friday, and bumped it up a day to Thursday. This just gave me… Continue reading Central Oregon Tour: The Last Day (Wednesday May 22)
