View Full Version : Great experiences on today's ride

I thought I'd share just what makes me love Portland.
On my way to work this morning, one of the Shift folks was behind me at the light, and he mentioned that Fred Meyer has spoke lights on sale. (I checked it out at the 28th street store and didn't see them, but it was great to know)
Then on the way home, I saw a middle-aged chap heading off the max. I gave a friendly hello and rode off. When I reached the Eco-Trust building, the same person rode through at exactly the same time. We both laughed at this and rode on.
While riding through northeast, I headed down a small street, and a little girl with her dad looked at me waving and said, "bike, bike."
Then as I crossed Powell, I saw my friend Izarra riding past.
It's so amazing to be in a town where so many wonderful connections can be made.

I like that story, makes me wish I was out riding in this great weather instead of sitting at work. 2.5 hours and counting before my story can begin. Thanks and enjoy the weekend
