Affirmative

Correct. Once you turn at Miles, you'll see a church on your left and a playground approaching to your right. Then it's
Right on Brier Place and over the freeway
Left on Custer (no other options...

Take Corbett

I would personally would avoid Taylor's Ferry here, because of auto traffic. Better, and more fun, is Fulton Park Blvd to Corbett. From Barbur, go past the I-5 Terwilliger bridge and turn right at...

just say it up front

My major issue was that bikerinNE didn't state at the beginning that the incident happened in Bend. A good example of a more reader-friendly message is K'tesh's about Hawaii, where he puts the locale...

Thumbs down led astray

Because this is a Portland Bike Forum, I generally assume that an incident reported here refers to the Portland metro area, unless stated otherwise. As it happens, this accident occurred in Bend,...

Fanno Creek dream

SCDURS has it about right, I imagine. This *is* or *was* part of the Fanno Creek Greenway Trail, an ambitious, very incomplete route that may some day reach from Tualatin to the Willamette River at...

Don't junk it yet!

I would take the stuck camera to Advance Camera for a diagnosis. I have found this shop to be helpful and professional. It is possible that your camera's problems are well known, and the fix may be...

Me, too, djason

Just so there's no confusion: I would appreciate NOT reading for-sale postings on this forum. So ya have to sift through the CL detritus, big deal. If you know what...

Thumbs up Thanks, Fred,

for starting this thread. It's provides a nice break from the rants and close calls. Can't say I have anything really humorous to add to it; my rides are fun, just not funny. But I do encourage...

Other ideas

As one who fits that category, I understand your gut feeling, although I personally would prefer to cruise down the lane of a lightly traveled Terwilliger to challenging the heavier, speedier (and...

2 ideas

I'm curious to know why you have rejected Terwilliger, which is the route that makes most sense to me. It's illuminated and wouldn't be heavily traveled at midnight. Ya just ride down and work your...

Hole is good

It's made with that little hole. Mine has one, anyway. FWIW, REI carries these.

Thanks

Thank you, Lynne, for spreading the word. I would not have known about this event but for your post. I definitely plan to check it out. Being a female of a certain age, I am no longer able to find...

SW Terwilliger X Capitol Hwy

Observed helplessly from my *car* driver's seat: Yesterday, at evening rush hour, cars stacked up in every direction. Young cyclist in the Terwilliger bike lane steaming outbound toward intersection...

TriMet is good

Since you say you have ridden this route, I'm unclear on just what you are trying to find out, but I'll give you my take:
I live in Hillsdale. The obvious route from PSU to the SWCC is...

Keep it simple

Hate to dampen your enthusiasm, K'tesh, but one must recognize that all information here is important to someone, and everyone's priorities are different. Why complicate an already workable system?...

Exclamation Keep the box

Before you toss all the packing and receipts that came with the rack, make sure your bikes actually will fit on the rack. I have found that some small frames and drop frames don't fit univerally....

persevere

I think you're on the right track with ODOT. Since Barbur/Pacific Hwy/99W is a state highway, seems as if ODOT would have jurisdiction over the road and extended rights of way, ie, sidewalks. And,...

another view helps

K'tesh, it's a little bit difficult to see exactly what the problem is from the perspective of your photos. However, if you plug 11900 SW Pacific Hwy, Tigard OR into Google Maps and look at the...

Gosh, I drive the Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy frequently and think it makes a most unpleasant bike route: swift, heavy traffic, distracted drivers, and off-and-on bike lanes where I think the only safe...

Wink In the old days...

in order to walk upright during what was known in Portland as a 'silver thaw', we wore wool socks over our shoes. Maybe you guys need tire socks!
