Just purchased my first home in NE Portland in the Montevilla neighborhood. 14 mile round trip commute to downtown has pretty much been most of my riding this summer since keeping up with a 100 year old house takes a lot of work. As evident from our last ride, I've gotta get in shape quick to get ready for cyclocross season!

Live in PDX in the Sellwood/Moreland neighborhood (about 10 minutes southeast of downtown). Most of my rides are either on Skyline or down toward Oregon City on River Rd. Peregrine, I also commute each day past your house, but I am traveling out in the morning and back to town in the evening.

I just bought a Cannondale. Have never been a rider before, until moving up to Portland from San Francisco. I am a SERIOUS beginner. Have no idea what I am doing, but I love the idea of getting around on my bike. so yeah, that is it for the intro!

i live in scappoose, or. i've lived here for 9 or 10 years. it's nice, and there are awesome places to ride, but i never intended to stay this long! it's 25 minutes or so from st johns in N portland, where i grew up (and where i plan to return if it isn't overrun by yuppies when i finally have the dough).

I'm in John's Landing two miles from Downtown. Short commute into work, but climbing Corbett right from the start gets the heart pumpin'

Seattle here, right in the middle of the city on Capitol Hill.

Sometimes I think it would be nice to be able to go for a ride without constantly planning for getting around the steepest parts of the hill. Definitely not tough enough (yet) to go over them indiscriminately.

Hardly any of my friends have bikes, so I'm always looking for people to go on bike rides with - but only if you're not so tough that you're going to leave me in the dust on those hills!

Seriously. There are definitely routes that minimize the hills (going straight up from downtown around First Hill/Madison street area is the worst, going further north to Olive is what I usually do) but not completely. I'm always sooo jealous when I see someone on a fixie just go for it straight up. I want to build a fixie but I dunno....

My address is Vancouver but I'm actually in a no-mans-land between Vancouver and Camas known as Fisher's Landing....... I alternate between dirt and road, been doing dirt lately.... Gotta switch back to road though so I can justify a new bike to the wifey.

No jab intended. The new ID stop sign/red light law is the topic of at least one weekly dinner conversation in my house (all cyclists & many of the dinner guests too).

Hmmm... I confess to being ignorant of some new stopsign law. Would you care to summarise?
