Greetings from Portland

Hello all,
I started bike commuting about a month ago, and it has been a great experience so far. I've mostly been a mountain biker up until now, but I think the road bug bit me. I've already gained much information from this sweet forum, and am looking forward to learning much more.

Have a great end of the week, Friday's just around the corner!

Welcome! Where does your commute take you?

Between SE Duke near 82nd and Airport Way East, mostly along the i205 path.
Some of the downhills on the path can be pretty fun, a nice way to wake up in the morning!

I have a great downhill bit on my way to work. I annoy the motorists because I ride on the road, and they would love to pass me, but then they realise that I am going the speed limit and more .

Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !
