KRea's pics are, unsurprisingly, emblematic of the PNW cycling experience. I love the forest trail shot from Shifty. I'll throw one up of a great ride KRhea turned me onto from the Clackamas R. valley up to High Rocks:



If you're scouting for a PDX unique and rewarding ride with plenty of elev gain he's your man.

I'm gonna throw this one out too. I just got back from a business trip to Anchorage, AK. This fixie was in front of a great local coffee shop, Kaladi Coffee. It was 16 out when I took this, and the rider had just gotten there. Serious riding stock up there.

Let's see those glorious photos of our favourite part of the world--the Pacific Northwest.

The biggest reason why I will probably never leave the Northwest:

Ok, I'll add some photos in here also. I normally don't have the camera with me but today took it because we had a mix of sun and light fog. While new to riding in colder temp - it was 38 degrees on Monday, 43 on Wednesday and close to that today - I am really enjoying not having the wind. If anyone is familiar with Ellensburg you know it blows here a lot and normal training rides can be in 10-15 mph crossing headwinds with gusts up to 20 or more mph. Any chance to go for a ride without the wind is one you jump all over.

Here are a couple of shots from my ride today:

Beautiful! Winds in Ellensburg are murderous . Mr. East Hill and I always make a yearly trek to Fort Simcoe around the first week of August, and it seems as if the wind never stops.
