Last night I drove from South Lake Tahoe to Portland and it feels great to be home.

Now comes the gargantuan task of trying to get back in front of the stories and emails that have backed up in my mind and inbox for the past week-and-a-half.

I’ve got a lot to share, including a few more stories from the road (highlights from Davis and Truckee) and other issues to address (like the other side of Friday’s Critical Mass incident in Seattle and Portland’s carfree future).

One quick note. I apologize for the Portland Bike Forums for being down again. First it was spammers and now there’s something wrong with the database. I hope to have them up again shortly. Fixed the Forums!

Welcome back, Jonathan. Hope the vacation rejuvenated you enough for the job ahead. Most of us have behaved while home alone.
