Scheduling a ride on Saturday February 16th was possibly not the best idea, as it's the same weekend of Mini Bike Winter (MBW) and its Chariot Wars. It's been a while since I had been to this big Zoobomb related event, so I forgot the mantra of "President's Day Weekend is Mini Bike Winter Weekend"… Continue reading A quick report: Slough Country Ramble, 16 Feb 2019
Yes, just a reminder that yes, the Slough Country Ramble is still on! I would have only considered cancelling if there was snow/ice, or the forecast called for pouring rain all day. Tomorrow's forecast calls for showers, so be prepared for some wet. We meet tomorrow, Saturday February 16 at 11 AM at Cafe Eleven,… Continue reading Slough Country Ramble: Still on!
The days of me living in the Woodlawn neighborhood are numbered, which means my easy access to the beloved Columbia Slough. So to bid adieu to this region, I’ll be leading one of my favorite rides: The Slough Country Ramble! We’ll be meeting on Saturday February 16 at 11 AM at Cafe Eleven, 435 NE… Continue reading Reminder: Slough Country Ramble Sat 16 Feb (?)
As I said before, I don't know how long I'll be around the Woodlawn neighborhood, which means my easy access to the beloved Columbia Slough. So to bid adieu to this region, I'll be leading one of my favorite rides: The Slough Country Ramble! We'll be meeting on Saturday February 16 at 11 AM at… Continue reading Slough Country Ramble, 16 Feb 2018
As I've said previously, I haven't done much riding lately. General busyness, not having to leave the house to go to work, and general winterness has brought my riding almost to zilch. Heck, I don't think I got on my bike for a good week before Friday the 21st. So, a ride of some sort… Continue reading A post-solstice Slough Ramble: 22 Dec 2018
Yes, my friends, Pedalpalooza, Portland's annual celebration of bike fun, is just around the corner. This year, it's all of June! Which I'm not super stoked about, as I feel it's just a bit too long. But whatever. (And I'll be gone for a good chunk of the first half, due to bike tour.) But… Continue reading Pedalpalooza coming! Here’s what the Urban Adventure League (and Society of Three Speeds) has in store.
I had no grand plans for a big adventure this mid-week, since there was A LOT I wanted to accomplish on my days off. (Did I get a lot done? Enough for now.) And since I'm leading the Three Speed Ride on Saturday, I'm going to get a "big" ride no matter what. But I… Continue reading Rough Stuff Rambling in NE, Wednesday 18 March
I had a lot of ideas for what I could do for my "adventure day" this week. But on Monday night, I got the itch to ride as much on dirt as possible. While there are several options around Portland, the longest unpaved road/trail open to bikes in the area is Leif Erikson Drive which… Continue reading A Leif Erikson Ramble, 10 March 2015
