    Greetings from Sunny Portland OR

    Hi folks, I registered with this forum last night. I ride a road bike and a novice commuter. I started riding in to work with a friend about two weeks ago. We are right now doing just once or twice a week as we get comfortable with our route and traffic.

    Just rode in this morning and counted 19-20 fellow riders on the streets of Beaverton.

    Just wanted to say hi!!

    Welcome, MAR. My wife and I visited Portland last year and we loved it. I think we hit every Borders Books, every used-book store, and every sewing/quilting store within a fifty-mile radius. Have a VooDoo Donut for me!

    Thanks East Hill. I know there are a ton of things going on locally that I have missed out on, but am starting to get engaged this year (first step being to become aware of them through the local websites). I really wanted to the the Livestrong challenge next weekend but I guess next year - I am helping a friend who is riding in it though.

    Welcome to Beburg!

    Be sure to check out Portland Velo http://www.portlandvelo.net for a social club, and don't forget about your local advocacy organization Washington County BTC http://www.washcobtc.org.

    Hope to see you on a ride some weekend!

    You going to do the SmellStrong this Sunday or just sit by and do your own ride?
    When was the last time a bicyclist fell asleep at the wheel and killed a family of four? It's the motorists that are the problem.

    Thanks DogBreath been to those and also to BikePortland.org. I have also been to the Metro Bike There map site and btw, if you have not, download the google earth map file of bike routes in the Portland metro area. It is the best thing since sliced bread that I have seen in a long time.

    No I wont be smelling strong this weekend. ;-) Will assist a friend as his personal "equipment truck/EMS".
