    There are a few other campgrounds in the area, too. The city of Vernonia has Anderson Lake, Vernonia Lake, and Vernonia Airport, and there is also Big Eddy County Park about another 10 miles up 47...

    What Seattle Forrest said.

    To answer the OPs question: I do live in Portland, and do ride in the rain. You just need to adjust to the conditions. Fenders are a good idea. And like DFrost said, you...

    I did it last year. You can get between them via a series of dirt/gravel roads, a few of them pretty rough. Basically head west (towards Salem) on OR 214, then left on Lookout Mtn Road, which will be...

    The Stub Stewart/Banks-Vernonia Trail (about 30-ish miles NW of Portland) would probably be the most workable destination. The B-V trail is paved and tree lined, though not much in the way of...

    As a year-round cyclist in the Northwest, I changed the rims on my Raleigh Wayfarer specifically for braking when wet, and it definitely made a difference. I first only had a front wheel built around...

    It is really a stop for cyclists. The only train that services Mount Vernon is Amtrak Cascades, which has roll-on bike service, and you can board at any station, whether it has baggage service or...

    I haven't ridden the Interurban, so I don't have an opinion on that. But I have done Chuckanut a couple times and really liked the experience. Just to note: the road is narrow and there is no...

    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.

    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 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.

    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.
