Greetings from California

Posted by on December 15th, 2005 at 8:13 am

I’m down in Orange County visiting family and I won’t be back until Dec. 29th. I’ve only been here about 5 days now, but I already miss Portland. We’ve rented a mini-van and I’ve done more driving in the past few days than I have for the past 6 months. Everywhere I look there are rivers of cars…

While I’m down here, besides hanging with the fam, I’ll be working as usual but you might see less posts than you’ve gotten used to. It’s been an amazing past few months here on and I want to get a fresh perspective, work on some housekeeping issues with the site and complete some exciting new features that I hope to tell you about soon.

Also, due to a recent influx of spam, I am now moderating all comments that come in from first-time commenters. So if you leave a comment and it doesn’t post right away, that’s the reason.

Thanks for reading and keep me in your bikey thoughts!


NOTE: We love your comments and work hard to ensure they are productive, considerate, and welcoming of all perspectives. Disagreements are encouraged, but only if done with tact and respect. If you see a mean or inappropriate comment, please contact us and we'll take a look at it right away. Also, if you comment frequently, please consider holding your thoughts so that others can step forward. Thank you — Jonathan

Jonathan, have a wonderful holiday in the warm sun. If you start to miss Portland too much, we’ll be happy to send you some frost/ice!

Thank you for your excellent website and everything else you do for bicycling here.

And stay safe on those 12 lane freeways (or is it 14 now?)…

hey man, we sure do have too many cars in the OC, but there are plenty of us who get around by bike. drop me an email if you want a guided bicycle tour.

Hey Jonathan;
If you want some amazing bike riding in SO-Cal just head out to Rancho Palos Verdes. It’s beautiful to ride around this peninsula on Palos Verdes Drive.
If you have more time head out to west Malibu and Point Magu.


Have fun down there. Nice job on the email a freind link. I’ve used it already today.
