Hey all,
I live in Rogue River Oregon(southern oregon betwee Medford and Grants Pass). Been cycling for a few years. I ride a recumbent, roadie, and mountain bike so have many options.

Hello,

I have been riding on and off for over 25 years now. I just currently upgraded from an old Dave Scott centurion to a newer Bianchi Nirone 7. I built it from the frame up and could not be happier with the ride. I live in SW Washington.

Cheers,

John

Seattle, Seward Park area. Jonesing to return to my beloved Vancouver, BC though. Once you have a taste of life in a civilised country, it's really hard to go back to America, land of debates over whether civilians should be allowed to own machine guns and other such idiocy.

What prevents you from achieving this dream?

I'm new to the cycling scene, and live on the east side of Washington. Anyway, looking to make some new friends and enjoy some good rides. Cheers.

Boise, Idaho. Just moved here from the Midwest and absolutely love it so far. About to buy a new MTB to take on the trails through the foothills that are practically in my back yard.

I spend enough of my time in Portland to list it in my avatar... would love to get together with more BFr's when I am in the south and will be at the end of April.

Eugene, OR! Recently relocated from Idaho. I love how easy it is to find back farm/rural roads around here.

Welcome to the Willamette Valley. Yeah, those are the types of roads I commute on. My wife always tells me those roads aren't safe: no bike path. I love them, low traffic and nice scenery, in the daytime at least.

Welcome to my neck of the woods... Currently live in Springfield. If you haven't ran into them yet or found their website, check out http://eugenegears.org/ they have a ride every weekend and I believe some during the week. Where do you ride?

Greetings from Port Angeles, WA, where I will be leading our 2nd Annual metric century group ride this Say May 4, 2013, over some decidedly mixed roads and trails. Come join me, if you have some reasonably stout tires to put on your rig :)

Greetings from Puyallup!
 
Puyallup, WA here. Live up on South Hill area, not the best area for cycling (few bike lanes or even shoulders), but I've managed to find a few training routes. Lifelong cyclist, but I had pretty much only ridden Mtn bikes that I turned into commuter/recreational rides. Last year I finally decided to do STP and after starting training realized that I wasn't going to be able to take the hand/wrist pain after 20 miles. So I bought a road bike and love it! I was able to get through STP just fine without walking or even stopping going uphill. I love doing organized rides, and would love to do more, but $ and pesky family get in the way. Just went to the Tacoma Bike Swap, that was great, was able to buy some different chainrings & handlebars that work great on my bike!

I'm in Wedgwood, which is a neighborhood in NE Seattle. I'm not too far at all from the University District, so I ride the Burke-Gilman Trail quite a bit. I rode it to Ballard today, then further north to the Shilshole Bay marina & Golden Gardens Park. I was coming past the Marina & heard some barking, kinda like a dog, but it was actually a couple seals or sea lions, playing on a buoy. :D You can "kinda" see the buoy, in this pic, to the left of the sign, but not too well, I guess. ;)

Bonney Lake, WA. Hilly in my neighborhood (and busy, hilly, winding roads to/from the nearest shopping), but have some awesome rails-to-trails paths not too far away. Looking for a new step-thru, crank-forward type comfort bike to join my husband & kids on their evening & weekend rides!

Oh - and PROUD to be an American and support those who defend our liberties!

Kent,WA here! been riding on the Green River trail and Interurban alot. Did a few rides(STP/FW/SC), on and off the bike the last few years. Bought a new bike this year for motivation and working on being fit. My plans for the summer rides will be, Mt Rainier climb, San Juans,STP,RSVP and a couple more rides. I know you all agree that the PNW has the best summer weather in the lower 48!

Living in Bellevue near Crossroads, have a new design of frame you may see around: http://bikeforums.net/attachment.php...hmentid=325212

I just posted it's history and the three main pluses in Introductions, it's low drag so very fast top-end, it tracks solid at any speed, and it's comfortable to ride, the longer chainstays are bent so rare to get chain-slap riding bumps so very quiet to ride.

^ That ^ is freaky-cool. How much does it weigh?
