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, June is over, and that means the close of another Pedalpalooza. I always end up leading a bunch of rides--too many, according to some. This year I was no slouch in leading rides, and didn't feel the "burn out" as most (most) of the events went well. So, what happened? Tuesday June 12, Bike… Continue reading Pedalpalooza 2018: My Rides Wrap-up
Deadlines, deadlines. The Pedalpalooza print calendar deadline (in)conveniently occurs while I am out of town. So I've spent the last week or two trying to sort it all out! And finally by 10 AM on the Sunday when myself and Emee board the Empire Builder eastward to St. Paul, sorted I am! It's a good… Continue reading Pedalpalooza is coming! Here’s all the planned Urban Adventure League/Society of Three Speeds rides/events for June 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.
