Chehalem Range Ramble CANCELLED
Hello folks. I've decided to cancel the Chehalem Range Ramble for this Saturday. I know what you are thinking, but this has less to do with COVID-19 and more to do with the projected forecast for Saturday. It's going to be at the very least wet and cool. And some reports are saying there can... Continue Reading →
Chehalem Range Ramble: The report.
Let's see: Before Saturday's ride, I had scheduled a Chehalem Range Ramble five times over the years, and only did it twice. Bad weather seems to like to find my ride. The first one in 2014 was tolerable, a bit of rain. When I did it last in February of 2017, I had already not... Continue Reading →
Reminder: Chehalem Range Ramble this Saturday, October 6!
It's less than a week away! My Chehalem Range Ramble is a fun ride through some beautiful country to the south and west of the metro area. The weather looks like it'll be classic early fall: mild with a chance of showers. Plus, those maples are starting to show their autumn colors. You should come... Continue Reading →

Tomorrow’s Chehalem Range Ramble CANCELLED
Yes, the weather forecast is just too iffy tomorrow, so I’m cancelling the Sunday November 5 Chehalem Range Ramble. Stay tuned, I WILL try to do it again. (Of course, now that the ride is cancelled, it’ll be beautiful tomorrow. No worries, go out and ride your bike!)
Chehalem Range Ramble may not happen this Sunday…
Yes, the weather forecast for Sunday is not looking good. And doing the Chehalem Range Ramble in wet and cold conditions is not fun, especially since there are few bail out points and/or places to warm up. Heck, there could even be a li'l snow at the top, just like it was when we last... Continue Reading →
It happened: Chehalem Range Ramble, 26 Feb 2017
Yes, my friends, the ride I had rescheduled twice over the course of two years has finally happened. This time I had the determination to stick it out, no matter what. And determination is what I needed as I woke up Sunday morning. While Saturday was beautiful, sunny and dry with a high near 50F/10C,... Continue Reading →
