    I think you'll like it. I have never ridden around The Dalles area , but for my taste it's a nice city. I'd think for Mt biking it would be great however. Friendly people IMO as well.

    Pepper Spray. I've had a can for several years, have never had to use it. But it is my main stratagey if I am not able to out distance the dog, or if it doesn't lose interest quickly.

    Lowes, and Harbor Freight both sell a pulley device that allows you to hang a bike off the ceiling of your garage, they work well. I'm sure your LBS can get one for you, but you'll pay more.

    It's been bit over 10 years ago that I had ridden in Paris. I found it to be ok, but not great. Glad it has improved. I understand the country side is fantastic and likely always has been.
