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?

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!
