How about two-night trips?

I've been on one bike camping trip so far -- to Oxbow -- and I loved it. What I'm noticing about many of the Cycle Wild trips is that they are so long that they prohibit all but the hardiest riders...

East side of the river is best for biking and not quite as expensive as west side. So north, close-in northeast and close-in southeast are all good. Don't overlook Sellwood just because it's at the...

112 suggestions already on the O site

As of 10:30 today (Sunday, March 29) the O has already received 112 suggestions and the cartoon was only posted two days ago. I've only read a few but they seem to be what you'd expect.

The response from Esteve's editor is shocking. If they want to try humor writing they should run a lampoon section every couple of weeks. This is a really lame excuse for sloppy, faux-journalism. It...

For me they assessed the bikes and set the prices. They take into consideration the upgrades you've had done and how well it's been maintained. The prices they set on two of my bikes were a bit...

Consignment Fees

Ask the various shops what they charge, if they take consignments. I know that Sellwood Cycle Repair takes 30 percent of the sale price for a bike in the price range you're talking about if you want...

An ironic downside to helmets?

Could it be that wearing a helmet gives some people a false sense of security and they feel freer to engage in risky behavior?

This pack looks good, but it brings me back to the question of where to put my light. I use a Cat-eye attched to my handlebar and I really like it. This pack, as do others I've seen, rises above the...

Surprised no responses

Mark,
I'm surprised there have been no responses. I was looking forward to reading other riders' experiences and recommendations. Maybe this will get your thread in the forefront again.

As of one minute ago that YouTube video had 1,864,627 hits! And it was so obvious the cyclist was riding a straight line and the only "weaving" he did was when he tried to avoid the cop coming at him.

I had a former coworker whose wooded property the Hood-to-Coast went through a few years in a row and each year many runners literally left shit on their property. Disgusting, rude, and disrespectful.

Original CL post still there.

The original Craigslist posting of the stolen bike is still there. Yeah, right, it was "only ridden twice" -- during the theft and maybe one test ride. I hope the owner gets it back.
