Was hoping to make this, but my daughter had her baby and she(Mazey) will be coming home with her. As much as I would like to go, as I have been riding solo here, my wife would frown upon it as the drive is a couple hours each way plus the ride. Someday! Have fun and be careful.

Pics are always appreciated.

Ridewithgps doesn't want to let me make a turn on Barrows. I zoomed in with the "little yellow man", and saw that there are some of those plastic lane dividers. Then I remembered the first time we did this as an "audible" we kinda broke the law. If you turn left on 135th right before Barrows, however, you've got a protected left turn, which I remember doing the last couple of times I went that way.

I've updated the ridewithgps route, linked on post #1 to eliminate that nasty, short climb.

One of my favorite comments about it: someone was asking if Portland really had an adult hide-and-seek league; another person answered, "No, but the fact that you even have to ask tells you a lot about Portland."

Truth. I have been stuck at intersections (both biking and driving) in this exact situation:

Oh, God. That show is so funny. And so true. I am almost afraid to admit that my wife and I for about five years played a small part in the gentrification of NE Portland. We had friends and neighbors who were not that far off from Fred and Carrie. I was a brewer at a microbrewery, for christsakes. Our daycare lady was a stained glass artist and her husband ran the least successful organic, fair trade coffee shop in the city. (Ahead of his time, back in 1994)

I think I'm coming - need to beg wifey for permission when she wakes up tmrw.

@gugie, can you email or text or PM me a reminder of how to get to Atelier Gugie? I've not driven there in a while and, I think, have never ridden there from my part of town. What's a good cycling route from the river to you?

I think you mean "continue on Multnomah", which turns into Garden Home.

Beauticious day in Portlandia! It started overcast and cool, but dry. @ollo_ollo was first to arrive, bringing his art noueau fork for attempted straightening.

One side mostly straight:


That's a lot of bending. The steerer was straight, most of the "unbending" seemed to occur in the upper fork blades. From the ease of cold setting, this was obviously a lower strength steel. I was able to cold set to a offset of about 50mm. The dropouts were parallel and in-line before it left the shop.


One by one the riders met up at Atelier Gugie:



Front left to right: @vitaly66, @jyl, @Aggiegrad, @Insidious C., @Andy_K and @ollo_ollo

As usual, Andy will post the real left to right info soon after this hits I hit save.

We got to the cafe in Scholls quickly.





The backside of the ride was done at a quick pace. The unseasonably "warm" weather kept us quite comfortable - the temperature topped out at 59F! We got back to the Atelier, some headed back home by car, others by bike, @Aggiegrad and I rode down to the local pub for a pint. Those who attended last year's Neal Lerner Tribute ride will be happy to know that the British Bombay IPA was in stock, so of course I ordered it. Not bad, not bad at all...

OK, so what people really care about.... Here are pictures from the lunch stop.



Left to right, that's my Trek, @aggiegrads' Gunnar, and @vitaly66's CoMotion.

Here's @ollo_ollo's 80's Titan.



@gugie's North Trask



@Insidious C.'s Williams



And finally, @jyl's Vitus



For a ride organized on this forum, the bikes were decidedly non-vintage. Insidious C.'s bike was the only one that was Eroica compliant. Three were recently made. Two others were vintage steel frames with c.2000 indexed shifters. And jyl's Vitus was (gasp!) carbon!

But at least the riders were vintage (and classic). Here's a post ride pic.



Don telling Carl about the Titan



And another pic while we were waiting for our food orders

Great ride. Great weather. I needed that! Thanks for inviting me.

I humbly apologize for bringing not just a carbon bike with brifters, but also a noisy dirty one with scraping fenders. Truly, I must show up for the next ride on a worthier steed.

This city boy is always impressed and a little uneasy when riding way out in the country. Some of where we rode probably qualifies as that. The scenery is beautiful, the traffic light, the drivers courteous, but the spectre of a mechanical is always in the back of my mind.

After bidding adieu to the group, I rode toward home. After reaching the riverfront path on the west side of the Willamette, I had a flat. Because I am an idiot with CO2, I blew apart the new tube. Because I was riding roadie style, I only had that one new tube. So I started walking.

Out in the sticks past Sherwood, I would have been walking for a loooooong time. Because I was in the heart of Portland, I walked a pleasant mile along the river, caught a streetcar, and rode transit to Velocult where a tube and a pint ŵere to be had. No muss, no fuss.

There is a reason I live in the city.

Darn it. I saw 1/13 in the title and was thinking that was tomorrow.
At 10, I was fixing a bike that so I would not have to ride the winter bike. The WB has enough grime on it that anyone brushing against it probably needs steam cleaning.
At 11, I went out to scout the I the Atelier location as I knew I would be coming via the path and I can never rember which streets go through. Location confirmed by the pile of tires, I continued my ride in the opposite direction from where you all went.
Oh well, next time. If someone waves from the path on a filthy bike, it's me

I can't believe this happened. I honestly almost warned the group to check their tires when we got back to gugie's place because I knew someone must have a flat. Why? Because we have a tradition dating back at least two years where whenever a group goes on a ride someone crashes and someone gets a flat. Since gugie managed to crash for us, I was sure someone would get a flat. A silly superstition, I know, but it really has happened an awful lot.

Straightening a Bent Fork

It was a beautiful day for a ride with some fine fellows. Appreciated those who dropped back to join me at the back of the pack. Gugie got right down to work and I got some pics as he strong armed my fork back into usefulness. Slowly, in measured increments, the fork regained its shape. It was something to behold and ultimately, turned out fine. Plus, thanks to Andy, I have a backup Peugeot fork(just in case). Quite a nice workshop set-up. Don

I'm getting new tires for that bike. My rule is that when you start getting flats, it means your tires are getting thin. This is the second flat on the rear. Begone, old tires!

I have the same rule but I usually wait until the third flat.

BTW, carbon or not your bike was definitely interesting, as your bikes always are.
