    Momentum magazine

    It looks like the new issue is out. There's a lot about Portland in this mainly Vancouver-based magazine. I wonder if they're angling to be the bikey magazine for the Pacific Northwest. I'd sure welcome that. There's some great writing in there.

    I wish the B.C.'ers would come visit this subforum sometimes. They come to physical Portland often enough, and my life has more in common with them than, say, someone in Houston, TX...

    It's both. I understand the print version is free in the Vancouver, BC area, though they have a subscription available.

    This has got to be one of the most read mags in this house. Its a great read for all in the family, good mix of facts and fancy, always fun always informative.

    I am not sure about Houston Texas but Houston BC checks into this forum once in a while!

    Darn, was just down that way today.

    Interesting write up from Sheldon Brown about charity rides.

    Thanks for the heads up Donna

    I went up to Vancouver for a week in the summertime. Even having not been outside the country before, the city felt right at home. The PDX of BC.

    I went to go hear Gordon Price speak a couple of weeks ago when he was in Portland. Apart from being a fantastic speaker, he also feels right at home in Bridgetown.
