My best friend has just acquired a vineyard near Portland and I am going to be visiting sometime this year. He would very much like me to move into the area. I am wondering what area of Portland is best for access to good road biking. I would like to live in a high rise apartment that is within walking distance of grocery shopping and other services. I love Indian food so I would like that to be within walking distance as well. Even better would be a nearby good Bike store.
How much can one ride in the winter? Is it possible to have days without rain? Are there any resources that I could investigate to learn more about the area. I have been there but it was many years ago.
Thanks to all,
