Yep, you can repair.
It's been a few years since I've ridden the entirety of the Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway. It's not bad, but like dtrain posited, it is a bit dull/flat. A week would be a lot of time to do it, as...
This is just me, but I would probably do something like Trans-Am to Sierra Cascades south to Crater Lake, then out to the coast from there. I love the Columbia Gorge (on Lewis and Clark route), but...
Looks like it could be a good touring bike.

With the username of "wheelinthai" and a post made previously about a Thai touring company, I'm guessing the OP is based in Thailand. And "overseas" to where? Remember that this is an international...
Here's some links to maps for the route shifty proposed:
I always love old cycling books like this. Especially the rosy prose from that era. I have a copy of an American book, "Bike-Ways", published in 1950. It talks a lot about bike camping and...
Man, that looks like quite the smart bike you got! Like how the saddlebag matches the paint.
I agree that "bike camping" is part of the big Bike Touring tent, just like Credit Card touring. However, it's a worthy distinction, especially when it relates to just an overnight trip. For example,...
I can't help but wonder if this is some lame attempt at "marketing". Or there's alcohol involved in this mystery. Or a bit of both.
As I look at the photo of the Elswick more, I notice how some of the "details" that can be seen on the overall bike photo aren't present in the detail shots. Besides the bars, I just noticed that the...
Like it! Lester, how do those Conti Retro Rides...ride?
Thanks! She's a great bike. Slightly too small, hence the tall bars, but I made it work.
Are these bars on my '84 Raleigh Crested Butte high enough to qualify?
PS: Nice High Sierra, OTS!
Just saw this interesting three-speed listed on the Portland CL. Not that crazy about the choice of handlebars, though.
A friend gave me this 1953 Rudge Sports for free. I like it.
And I bought this '70s Raleigh Wayfarer for $30. I also like it....
Yep, a great crankset! I have a Tourney XT on my '84 Raleigh Crested Butte MTB. No longer pristine since the non-drive side crank has been replaced, and the drive side is slightly bent. But still...
For vintage, I have a Union dynamo/headlamp block unit on my '53 Rudge Sports. Still works good, though needs frequent adjusting. This was gifted to me by a friend in NY....
Not my bike, but saw this interesting drop-bar conversion on Portland Craigslist:
26" Wheel Touring / Commuter with Surly Fork and Chris...
You have to email for photos, but I'll just trust the seller when he/she says the paint is "awesom".
As far as I know, there's no crossing near there other than the I-90 (Vantage) Bridge.
Do you intend to ride the John Wayne Trail east of the Columbia?
Indeed, some great weather. It's like Mother Nature flip-flopped September and October this year. I've been trying to take advantage of this weather to get in some late-season bike camping...
I would say yes there is plenty of great options for a 400 mile round trip tour starting in Portland and going through the Gorge. But you said you don't especially like hills, so there's not a whole...
Yeah, I believe the fact that Raleigh USA HQ, being in Boston, had a lot to do with the number of Raleighs in the area. That and all the colleges.
Oops, I didn't notice the part about "third weekend in September" from the bikeportland post!
You must be looking at a different forecast than I am for Crater Lake. The NOAA/NWS forecast calls for...
