    Portland and beyond!!!!!

    HI! I have been on and off my Specialized Allez road bike for the last 5 years or so.... Just moved to Portland Oregon (where i know no one!). It is a biking mecca here and I am in heaven. Was living in Tampa Fl before that and you must own a car there. Before that was pittsburgh.... so..... We sold our cars and moved! I should be receiving my bike on monday and I cant wait... I JUST bought a bmx to beat up on about 5 mins ago on ebay. AND am poking around for a fixed gear or something to turn into one. So I finally signed up here. Ive always been into bikes but my Dad got me into road bikes so its all thanks to him.... he is a SERIOUS cyclist in the Tampa Bay area and definitely my inspiration! any portland people with bike info please let me know!!

    Welcome! My brother rides a Specialized Allez here in our fair Rose City. There's a lot of Portland bicycle information rattling around in my head. Where do you want me to start?

    A group of Oregon Bike Forum folks are riding the Monster Cookie Metric Cookie Sunday (tomorrow), join us at 8:30 at the State Capital for the ride, see the thread in Northwest Regional Forum for details. We'd love to have you join in the fun!!
    Those voices in your head aren't real, but they have some great ideas

    Hello AroeCycle, I'll hope to see you on the BMX forum--just don't ask about how to do bunny hops .

    Say hi to the rest of the locals in the Pacific Northwest Regional forum, too.

    Welcome to BF!
