Hi everyone! My name is Mitch, and I am finally getting into the biking scene in Portland Oregon.
How is everyone?

Welcome to the Portland bike scene Mitch. Good time to get your fee wet. Not sure if you've heard or not, but there are a couple of events tomorrow and Saturday (both at noon, i think) to gather in support of the cause of making cycling safer in portland. There are some details at www.bikeportland.org in the forums.
Welcome, and be sure to watch for leaves on the road this time of year, they get mighty slippery.

Hello Mitch, what part of the biking scene are you going to join, and what kind of bike are you riding?
Welcome to BF!

I for one am a Portland biker in the Alameda area and welcome. Portland is pretty bike friendly but there are time you need to LOOK OUT but mostly real easy bike city.

Right now I ride my moms 30 year or so old bike. I go Zoo Bombing as much as possible, but have gotten 3 tickets in one night... Long story. I will be getting a Track bike from Bike central within two weeks. I am gonna use it as a commuter, and I will be racing it this summer. I have been really busy with school and all, so I don't think I will be able to make it to the biking support thing.

Oh, ZooBombing :D . You must know quite a few of the AltBikers who post here then?

I mostly know longboarders (Eastside longboarders), but I know some the the alt bikers.
It's the best feeling in the world! (At least the best biking feeling, hahaha)
