A quick trip to Seattle: 5-7 March 2020

Seattle, Washington. The Emerald City. Its close proximity (by Western standards) to Portland means I have visited it a lot over the past 20 years. Whenever I needed to visit another major city and didn't want to travel to, say, San Francisco or Chicago, Seattle fit the bill. I've pretty much seen most parts of… Continue reading A quick trip to Seattle: 5-7 March 2020

A mid December update: New Haven, Bike Craft, Sprockettes, 26 Inch Lifestyle

A weekend of bike adventuring around Bend: Sept 20-22

I've lived in Oregon for almost twenty years, but barely ever got out there. I moved to the state in 2001. But besides seeing the… Continue reading A weekend of bike adventuring around Bend: Sept 20-22

Louisville Trip, 26-29 August 2019

Ever since I started to do some work for Emee's event planning business last year, I've been travelling more than I used to. This is due to the nature of the biz, since hotels, chambers of commerce, travel bureaus, and the like are eager to bring us out to places in order to show us… Continue reading Louisville Trip, 26-29 August 2019

Of farms, daffodils, Tweed, and beer: A weekend in the Skagit Valley, 14-17 March

I've mentioned previously how Emee and I won't be able to make it to the Lake Pepin Three Speed Ride this year. While it's definitely a bummer, there are other smaller yet similar rides in the area we can do to give us the feel of Pepin without going the distance. Like the Dandy Daffodil… Continue reading Of farms, daffodils, Tweed, and beer: A weekend in the Skagit Valley, 14-17 March
