Enjoy this day of independence remembrance. Freedom and liberty and America are awesome!

The weather is perfect for biking so we hope many of you are taking advantage of it. Lots of folks will check out the St. Honore Criterium in northwest Portland on Saturday. On Sunday, there’s a Portland edition of the Rapha Women’s 100. Meet at Ristretto Roasters (3808 N Williams) at 7:30 am (more details on the Facebook page).

I’ll be heading out for a short ride and thinking about bike stuff (as always). Eight years ago I wrote a Declaration of Independence from cars and I just read it again the other day. It’s sort of cheesy, but it also sort of captures how I still feel today.

We’ll be posting a few stories tomorrow and then it’s back at it on Monday.

Have a great long weekend!
