I have been in Seattle for 19 years and have decided to move to Portland. I lived there for a while about 20 years ago and the city has changed a lot (me to). I hear the Portland is very "bike friendly".
I am wondering if anyone from Portland can give me some good links for queue sheets etc ... Are there any scheduled group rides, clubs etc ...? I am still some what of a novice and only just completed a CTS century here in Seattle last week in the 14-16Mph group. I had a lot of fun.
I have a fear of hills which I have been working on here in Seattle. We have so many of different grades that you almost have to get over it. It has been a fun challenge. Are most of the hills in Portland the west hills (those seem daunting)? Are there some that are a little less daunting? I don't want to lose my work on hills.
