Rediscovering the Crested Butte
It's sort of funny: I've talked about the death of the Crested Butte many a time over the past couple years, yet I still have the bike. Well, "death" may be too strong a word, but I have definitely talked about selling the bike, and did actually try to sell it in October, but that... Continue Reading →
A change in the air.
The winter season, or the approximation we see here in the wet side Northwest, is here. October is typically a decent month with temps hitting 70 a bunch, but then around the end of the month "the switch" turns on, and we get a few weeks of wet weather. This has been the case this...

A Black & Cream Fall Ride and The Healing Powers of The Bicycle.
A nice story from Hugh down in SoCal.
I can’t speak for other bloggery folk, but when I get feedback or a reader reaches out through the digital ether, well it just plain feels good!
Recently, David Person from here in the Los Angeles area reached out while I was fully immersed on the Coffeeneuring Challenge and expressed a desire to get in a ride with other Rivendell folks, and yeah I fall into that category as I’m pretty darn Rivy.
Even though the timing didn’t work out to get in a Coffeeneuring ride together (I still need to submit all my rides to Mary) since I completed the challenge last weekend and I didn’t have time to get the other SoCal Riv riders organised for a group ride, David and I went ahead and scheduled a ride on Friday the 20th my day off.
A bit about David, standing at 6’2″ with long legs and an easy…

The Bantam Rambleneur, three months in
Well before I knew it, a full season has passed since I got the Bantam Rambleneur. Three months since I got my custom bike. A custom bike! It's still weird to think that I own a custom frame, because up until a couple years ago I never thought I would. So, how is this "dream"... Continue Reading →
A Kelley Point Ramble and a bonus Coffeeneuring adventure
It's November, and I've been feeling it. November is possibly the toughest months because of the onslaught of winter, which means short days and rain. Not only that, November can be stormy, and it has been just that. Wednesday November 18 was a niceish day in between two very soggy days. While I had many... Continue Reading →

REMINDER: Three Speed Pub Crawl this Sunday
Hey folks! Don’t forget about the pub crawl happening this Sunday, November 15!
Please meet at Hedge House, 3412 SE Division St, Portland OR 97202. Meet time is 4 pm. The distance isn’t going to be long, maybe five miles, but it’s not a loop. We shall end near transit. We’ll hit up at least three pubs, because a pub crawl without a minimum of three pubs is no pub crawl at all!
And yeah, it will be dark, and the forecast is showers, high 49F/9C, so make all the appropriate appropriations. Drink responsibly, and it’s never a bad idea to buy your leader an ale.
SPECIAL NOTE: A few folks have said they may not be able to make it to the start but might want to catch up later. I will say with certainty that we’ll be at the Hedge House until 5, maybe even a bit later (Happy…
