    I'm the old guy on a Trek 7000 Mon-Fri who passes under I-205 on the Springwater at 5:40 every morning on my way to work. I may get up on a Saturday just to take you up on you offer of a cup. I come from Boring every week day and ride 16 miles to XRI Testing in the Crosswhite Industrial Complex at 67th Avenue just off Johnson Creek Blvd. Only the trail makes it possible. I never would have started this a year and a half ago if I had to fight regular traffic.

    I didn't know about this forum - this is great! I'm the girl on the Specialized Sequoia fighting my way up the hills in Oregon City twice a week, and on the other days I'm enjoying the Springwater trail on my way down to PSU after dodging traffic through Milwaukie on my way from Gladstone (where I actually live). The bike is one of the things making it possible for me to afford graduate school, and it appears to be grad-student chic at PSU - about half of the students I know are also cyclists.

    It does seem that the regional forums are hidden quite well!

    We've got people on this thread who checked in almost two years after they joined up!

    Where are you located? I think I asked that already, didn't I ?

    I managed to mow my lawn today--and now the rain is back up here, too. Good for you on that commuting!

    Oops, well, relatively speaking I suppose. I'm a Californicator from Los Angeles.

    Been lurking for maybe a month or so, signed up finally and now am ready to participate. I like to try to get a bead on a board for I speak up and put my foot in it.

    I can see why you would think of Corvallis as podunk, then .

    It's definitely not as fast paced as LA .

    down to the gorge as in The Gorge Ampitheatre. Or the gorge as in just down to Vantage (Columbia River Gorge)? I've done the later.

    Greetings! Bethany/Beaverton, OR here. Also on the Century-a-month plan (STP doesn't count). Favorite quick training ride is North Plains and up Dixie Mtn. I dream of a full shoulder on West Union Rd?

    Next one on the list is the Strawberry Century.

    Hello,

    Checking in here after checking in to the main newbie forum. I'm currently looking for a bike, and I've been visiting the LBS and lurking around the Clydesdale forum for suggestions. I'm planning to go do some test rides the next time the weather permits, and try to decide between a road bike or a comfort/hybrid type.

    As for my backstory, I'm Pacific Northwest born and raised, and have a hard time imagining living anywhere else. I grew up in Salem, OR, and loved riding bikes with family and friends. I started migrating north in high school with a few years back and forth between home in Portland and boarding school in Auburn, WA. Did a little community college in Salem, then moved to Renton, WA during the dot-com boom. I currently reside in Everett and work in downtown Seattle. My wife and I went for a short ride a few weeks ago, which is when I realized my bike is too small, but it was enough to really make me want to go more.

    Hello everyone!

    Tealsteel, you are right, you've got wind! But hills are still good .

    dbishnu--where have you been all this time? Are you still riding the Raleigh, and if so, where are the photos for the C & V forum?

    nsandver--we were close neighbours!

    I'm in the Northwest Neighborhood myself, up near the college. I've been keeping an eye on Craigslist, but I have two concerns with that approach: 1) I don't know what size bike I need in terms of frame/standover height and 2) because of that, I don't really want to go driving all over the region wasting my time and the seller's to see bikes that wouldn't fit anyway. I've seen some good deals though, like several Specialized RockHoppers or HardRocks for under $100. Being right around 6' tall, what size frames should I be targeting in general?
