Angry Bike "rage" guys on Hawthorne Bridge, 6/8

In just another example of how we bicyclists need to start doing what we've asked drivers to do for us:

Yesterday, three male cyclists (one of which who seemed to be riding his own personal Giro...

Smile Be glad you don't live in Chicago

My sister is coming to visit me tomorrow, and I offered to show her around Portland via bike while she's here. Her comment back can remind all of us why we should be glad we live, and bike, here,...

why did I get offended...hmmm.

Well, I think I felt a little weirded out by the interaction because I do ride on the Springwater alone on many occasions. For several reasons, I have always felt the need to be very aware of what's...

Exclamation To Springwater Trail kissy-face bike guy

I go out on the Springwater Trail to ride my bike and get some exercise. I don't go to pick up men (my husband would probably object, among many reasons.)

Woodward is a problem when school's in

Yep, it's definitely sweeps month -- these sorts of sensationalized takes on what would otherwise be a legitimate news story are rampant in November, in every major TV market in the country.

From the commuter perspective...

When I was commuting on bike occasionally (now I'm up to 4-5 days a week), sadly the weather had much to do with it. I found that raingear only goes so far. People have to be willing to put up with...
