    Shifty, I think you may be confusing the Expo Center with the Convention Center, which are two different things and in two very different locations. The Expo Center is in the far north part of town,...

    Yep, I knew about that. There still is the "missing link" that needs to be filled between Cascade Locks and Hood River, so for now there's still about 10 miles of freeway riding between the two.

    What cyccommute said. You can also stay on the north side (Wash.) until just north of The Dalles (jct with US 197) then cross south there. Doing that would mean avoiding a few miles of 84 east of The...

    That would be Wednesday. But also note during early summer there is the Mt. Tabor series races.

    While statistically NH may be "worse" than NYC, we're talking about a city of 130,000 that covers 20 square miles. Plus, one can avoid what people consider the "bad" areas of town by using a route...

    The Eton Raptor I own uses a solar panel but can be charged via "house" power. Even with a couple hours a day of listening, I only need to charge by plugging in about every two weeks, so it goes...

    I don't, though the Eton Raptor ​does have a NOAA Alert feature that I haven't tried out. The one big issue with it is you can only set it to one of the seven weather band frequencies, preferably the...

    Of course, there are areas where there is no wifi/3G service, and this is where a weather radio comes in handy. This was put in practice a few years ago, when I was touring around Glacier and camped...

    I'm pretty darn sure that the Tillamook Head Trail is strictly a hiking trail. And if for some reason they did allow bikes, this would be a moderate level mountain bike trail. I hiked it years ago,...

    I also own a Static V. It isn't the fanciest pad they sell, nor the lightest. (I think it weighs around a pound.) But it does pack up small, and is comfortable. I've been using mine for a year.

    True. Thankfully, I've never flatted when riding the numerous Interstates that were parts of my tours through the years. (Debris strewn bike lanes in my town, however, have given me plenty of flats...

    For the sections I did, yes. Probably a 10 foot wide shoulder with rumble strips. Generally Interstate shoulders are pretty generous, you just have to watch out for debris.

    Another option to throw in the mix would be taking Amtrak to Seattle and doing a tour around the Puget Sound/Inland Sea and its various islands. No real high-altitude or extended climbs, but a decent...

    Without our stop in Missoula, I believe it was about two weeks to do Spokane-Trail of the Couer D'Alene-Missoula-Glacier. The blog entry I mentioned above has more info.

    I've actually ridden the route that's been proposed--twice! And I don't share KRhea's dire opinion on it. It's not perfect, I will admit, but it's not horrible at the same time. Would I do it again?...

    Funny, I visited Crater Lake last July and don't remember anything about mosquitoes. Maybe I just got lucky? (I rode the loop one day and camped at Diamond Lake for two nights.)
