Hey, anyone ride in on the Springwater Trail that needs to be at work by 8am? I'd like to get a group of bike commuters together for that ride.

I'm a long-hauler, I commute in from the Sunnyside area WAY the heck out in Clackamas. I'd like to have someone to share the ride with at least part of the way, help take my mind off the mileage.

Morning Matt,

I've been doing the springwater cooridor for about a month coming up from 224 and Webster.

I think I'm on the path a bit before you. I leave the house at 630 and try to be on the path by 7.

I've seen your blog and hence your picture, so I can say that I think you passed me once or twice last month when I was riding 15-20 minutes later.

I'm not sure the times of our commutes line up. But if you see me on a silver Fuji hybrid lit up like a Christmas tree, feel free to say "Howdy."

I'm on the path before you when I'm on time, and after you when I'm running late - I'm embarrassed to say that's more frequent lately.

I ride a Blue Gary Fisher Wahoo covered with stickers:
(usually not with the Muppet sign, though) ;-)

Cool, I'll keep an eye out.

Sad to say I'll be out of town for three weeks. So perchance we'll run across each other in October.

Hello! I ride from SE Flavel up all the way to SE 17th ave. I'm usually on the path by 7:35, but now that it is starting to become good ole' oregon again I will aim to be on the path by 7:15-25.

It'd be nice to see some smiley faces or someone to chit chat with for at least some of my ride.

Let me know if you ride around this time!

Well I try to be on the trail by 8:00 am and at work by 8:30
I live like 3 blocks away from the entrance to the spring water trail right where it hits Umatilla, if there is anyone who is biking through at this time I'd love to buddy up to downtown... I work off park ave. straight up from the Hawthorne Bridge.

so for indentification purposes....

I ride a mostly black full susp. Specialized,front, rear disc's, locked out, silver front forks, handlebar mounted light, red blinky on seatpost... and a red helmet blinky. and some skinny ass tires fixed to some my all black all mountain rims...minus the lights... I'm stealthy like ninja;
with specialized black helmet with the IZ blacked out to make me special ED, black tights, black, black and black... I'm really trying to be visible honest :rolleyes:
