Hello friends! Looks like we are in for a week of dry weather. Hopefully this will stick around through the weekend for this Saturday's Slough Country Ramble!

As I stated previously on this blog, riding down by the Columbia Slough is my "jam". I lived near the western part of it for five years, so it was always easy to cruise down there. But I don't live near it anymore. There's not a lot I miss about the house in Woodlawn,* but… Continue reading A Slough Country Ramble, 27 December 2019
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.

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!

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
