    I just wanted to post a message about riding in Riverview Cemetery. For
    those of you that don't know this is a very popular route from the Sellwood
    bridge up to the top of Taylors Ferry and Terwilliger area. I had a long
    talk with David Noble from the head office on Tuesday and there has been
    talk of stopping the cyclists from riding this route, this would be a blow
    to hundreds of cyclists that commute and train in the cemetery. The reason
    for this is the speed of riders going through the narrow roads around the
    areas like the parking lot at the front office, the maintenance shop on the
    back side and several other areas that have sharp turns and people cutting
    corners and almost hitting cars head on. There has been several close misses
    lately he said and they do not want any accidents. So please slow the speed
    going down through the cemetery, especially around the areas that I talked
    about. I would hate to see us loose the privledge of using these roads, they
    are nice enought to allow us access so lets not screw it up, please put the
    word out to people that may not be on this chatline. Thanks everyone for
    listening and any questions let me know.

    they are private roads. but it's been a popular route for lots of folks and they've been nice about letting people use 'em. great hill workout.
