    What's the difference between proud and smug? If I were car-free where I live I would think I was a god. I guess that's somewhere beyond smug.

    I'm jealous. The roads around me are closed to public entry due to fire season, already. They've been doing that for about the past 5 years, since the guy with the 50 caliber started a fire...

    Do you have fenders on your bike? If not, you'll probably need a shower when you get to work. I used to have a picture of my legs all crusted over with road crud from a rainy ride home. And that...

    I didn't go anywhere. That's what I generally do on days I don't have to work.

    It was in the mid-50s or so, cloudy and a bit humid but the roads were dry. I love biking in the daylight where I can enjoy my scenery. I'm working in Salem today so will be able to catch a bus...

    It depends on the rural area. I went running with my friend on some gravel back roads down outside Medford, OR and was impressed that none of the dogs barking at us were free to chase us. I asked...

    Highly efficient vehicles like my Insight (60 mpg) still use gas. Prius are very common in Oregon and usually get somewhere in the high 40s, I think. They pay the gas tax. So raise the gas tax. ...

    I didn't know about those experiments, though blackberries and blueberries have been tried mechanically. Blueberries might make it, but those thorns that were impossible to remove from the...

    Me too. I generally ride between 5:00 to 6:00 am and 6:00 - 7:00 pm. I rarely ride on weekends but when I do I take my mountain bike up the coast range logging roads. Can't now as that land is...

    Every year my boss sends me a notice officially saying that my job is not eligible for telecommuting. That makes sense. I work in an industry where we still actually make stuff to sell. In my case...

    What trail race? I love trail runs. The McDonald Forest 15K just north of Corvallis is about the only race to do any more. It's 20 miles from my house, and I wish to ride my bike to it (and home...

    That is one of the arguments used by the DMV to support the program, though for now it's the same rate for any passenger vehicle.

    I did the math the other day, and I would pay three times as...

    I didn't realize there was such a big difference in metabolic rates between driving and bicycling. It sounds like your bicycling is more around my running rates, though. I rarely bike really fast. ...

    It isn't mandatory yet, and with a 60 mpg car I won't be volunteering to join it. There's no way to do it without more hassles, as I don't have to go through any inspections for my car now. I...

    A chart I saw, which was relating moderate exercise (not specifically cycling) to life span, showed the benefits starting to taper to flat at about 90 minutes per day. It didn't go far enough to...

    We generally have ripe ones in mid-July in the valley. Ours are still green. The ones ripening now are the little creeping blackberry, which I think is native. They taste better than the invasive...
