    Hi from Portland OR, riding among the strange world of hipsters, whizzers & fixies

    Hi, I'm in my early 40s, getting back into biking because we recently moved to Portland, and it's a great place for it. As a kid, I lived on my 10-speed until we moved out of a small town and into the car-centric suburbs...I've been living in car-centric places ever since, until now. Portland is weird, interesting, annoying and great.

    Since May, I've given up my car & commute by bike&train 5 days a week. Bike route is 15 miles round trip, and after a week of that on a 10-speed, I bought a bionx-based electric bike.

    I'm open to questions from anyone on my experiences with the Portland bike scene, electric bikes, the Georgia bike scene, etc.

    Thanks!

    To err is human. To moo is bovine.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
