Dan, from the Tri-Cities, WA
Grew up in Seattle, Queen Anne near Seattle Pacific where I learned to ride, and learned to brake by riding into 'sticker bushes.'

3 years commuting on Wilshire Blvd and riding in Griffith Park in L.A., now back in Washington, Sun Country.

I live in Vancouver, WA and work in Portland, OR. I'm close to the Columbia River, close to Vancouver Lake, lots of great places to ride! I'm a n00b, so I'm learning as much as I can.

I live in Anacortes on Fidalgo Island in San Juans - but scamper south to California when the rains start up. You can have my share of the NorthWet Winters.

Another rider in the Pacific Northwest - Olympia WA
I ride a commuter/errand bike, road bike and mountain bike (only really easy rides) out of Olympia Washington. I'm not a terrific rider, but I do almost all my errands on my bicycle, and have the distinction of being a living survivor of a very bad accident where a car ran over me while I was walking my bike in a crosswalk. (The car won). My left tibia and knee parts were shattered, lots of broken teeth, and a well cracked helmet. I've had several surgeries, but can still ride a bike and am glad to be alive after all.

I don't do any serious mountain biking because I can't afford to fall and hurt my rebuilt left leg and knee, plus I have too much fear. I do ride around Olympia a lot and enjoy touring on my road bike.

Kelso and Longview Washington along the Columbia River. If you've ridden the STP you've gone right through this area.

Entiat, Washington.
Some good riding in this area for both road and Mt.

'09 Jamis Coda Comp, '09 Trek FX 7.9 (the best hybrid in the world), a 2003 Breeze Twister and a 2002 Marin Nail Trail.

Therefore I am
Hail from PDX, originally from the East Coast, never going back. Love bikes and riding. Thinking about getting old Trek frame repainted, inspired by the fall colors. Orange, yellow and green too garish?

Greetings from Dayton WA in the great Palouse country the gateway to the Blue Mts. I like old 3 speeds and am currently, painfully trying to break in my Brooks B67 "Aged" on my '73 Raleigh Sports! I thought these pre treated Brooks were supposed to be comfy from the get go! Oh well, it's worth the wait!

Seattle (Greenwood). Where it is finally late November, and I do not need to fret about dry-glove syndrome for another five months. :thumb:

Funny, I'm a Georgia transplant here in Vancouver, WA who wants more sunshine. House swap?

I've been commuting for over a year and a half but I am very much a newbie. Stopped using my Specialized Singlecross and now have moved onto a Salsa La Cruz. I want to do some longer rides (potentially with a road bike I do not own yet). Still learning what I can. Adjusting disc brakes is apparently not my specialty.
