Get out and ride!

Well, since my event calendar is broken (thanks to my recent software upgrade), I haven’t really been keeping track of what’s going on this weekend.

I’m going camping with my girls Sunday and Monday (been planning it all summer but haven’t been able to do it until now), so, barring any breaking news, I’ll see you back here on Tuesday.

Enjoy your weekend and don’t forget to share your adventures in the comments below.

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

    Heading out to check out ODOT and Portland’s work on my requests for pruning/missing signs/and dangerous storm drains…

    I’ll post pics in the forums…

    Have a great time, and watch out for those mosquitos 😉

    Heading down to Salem on Sunday for the Peach Century–although I’m a wimp, so I’m only doing the metric. Weather is supposed to be beautiful, and I’m looking forward to a gorgeous ride through the mid-Willamette valley. Woo hoo!

    A rare off-the-bike weekend for me. Well not entirely off the bike – I will be riding it around town on errands, including a trip up to Infinity Tattoo for some new bike-y (geeky) artwork . . .

    Training for the harvest century and feeling good about the weather. It’s my first organized ride of any kind (other than local dos i find on the Shift list) and I have no idea what I’m doing. YAY!

    All I did was meander around town on my bike on Saturday, but somebody got married at Sellwood Park:
