Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

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.
