It's the desire for elevation information that makes your request difficult. That limits it a fair amount. The best bet for those, IMHO, is a GPS such as the Garmin Edge 205 or 305. The 305 is...

Portland is a much smaller feeling town than Seattle. You'd have to be pretty far from downtown to find either commute oppressive. It's hard to be more specific without a sense of your budget. Feel...

Nice knowing you Last Thursday

And so goes the fun. Last night turned into little more than a drunken mess, almost a riot. On my street corner, the cops were forced to break out the riot gear as the beer bottles were flying and...

It's a great way to sidestep the highway for a stretch. The road is closed to motorized traffic for much of its length as it winds along the Clackamas river. That it avoids a biggish hill is a...

We may have been to the same meetings. Gentrification is an issue, but, in my humble opinion, one confused and often overblown.

People can be driven out by raising rents, but homeowners are...

Ah, yes, the tired whine about the evil gentrification, usually from people that moved into the area less than a decade ago. Guess what, unless you grew up here, YOU are part of what you...

When someone tags my property or someone elses, they damage it. It often isn't "just a coat of paint" away from returning it to its state before the vandal made his "art". Not only do they damage the...

Perhaps we should "tag" their bikes with a brick or hammer and see how they feel about the destruction of someone else's property. I would never actually condone such an action, but it is what they...

Time was pressing before a business trip, so I settled on a Timbuk2 Commuter bag for now. It's only so-so on the bike, but the amount of protection it offers easily beat any of the bags I was able to...

With the arrival of the new laptop comes the hunt for the new messenger bag. It'll spend time on both the bicycle and the motorcycle. I've looked at Chrome, Crumple, and, of course, Timbuk2. I'm...

Again, what you need to do according to the state has nothing to do with what is or isn't a right. That's sort of the point of the word "inalienable". Rights do not come from the state. Further, that...
