One of the best things I did when I started writing for BikePortland a couple years ago was to use Tweetdeck to create a live feed of people in the Portland area who use the word “bike” or “bicycle” on their social media.
A day like Saturday really lights that list up. Here’s a sampling, roughly in chronological order through the day.

Well, now I get to bike to the Hollywood Farmer's Market on a gloriously sunny morning.

Biking in the sun + green lights all the way up Williams = it's going to be a good summer.

And my favorite:
That ride was pretty good/easy guess I'm going to be one of those bike people now.
