Just who rides a bike...yep, these stereotypes do!

You have to admit it...if your a rider, you probably saw a group (or two) that you fit into!  Too funny!

Bikepacking....this weekend!

Ok, I've had family in town so not much has been posted lately.  Well it's time to correct that by doing a "big" trip (an overnight) down to Davis Creek.  That way I'll have a lot to post on and this blog won't be so boring! 

Anyway, the route is pretty much what's shown above.  The group (hopefully they show) is set up and in theory we're all ready to give it a shot!  I'm sure we will be over packed and under packed all at the same time and that many things will not go as planned.  I'm also pretty sure we'll survive and have a little fun along the way!

So let the bikepacking season begin!

Weekend Advice....Take your Medicine!

I've actually never been in River City Bicycles....but they sure have some good print ads!  Also....I'm not a doctor but I'd say increasing your dosage wouldn't be a bad thing!

Weekend Project Ideas....a reconfigure?

I guess I might not have too many pictures of this bike on the blog.  It's a Raleigh 29er mountain bike.  I recently had a frame bag made for it by Rogue Panda Designs.  It hasn't even seen a trail in this configuration....but I'm planning.  Sooner or later, I'm going to be doing the Oregon Outback route (360ish miles of single track and gravel from Klamath Falls up towards Portland).  I'm still intending to riding the Fargo....but if I want some company....I'm now prepared to provide the ride, cargo system, and lighting for any sucker willing to have a go!

More bike infrastructure updates.

A week or two ago I posted on the new street access from the river path up to East McCarren Blvd. that was being worked on (here).

Well, now in addition to access from trail to road....there are ped/bike specific bridges on either side of McCarren! 

These will connect to improved bike lane and perhaps some separated bike paths that are part of the McCarren update project that should be wrapping up as summer rolls in.  So if your in the area in the next few months check it out.

St. Patty's Day Planning....

If you're going to be drinking a lot of this tonight.....

Remember that this little relationship is a much better option than driving.....

Of course the best option tonight is to climb your drunk arse onto one of the RTC buses.....they are free from 4 pm to midnight!!!  Stay safe out there people!

Cool bikes around town.

Not much new today.  So here's a cool bike I saw down at Public House last weekend!

It's tough to find a Mixte Centurion in this good of condition.  Extra bonus for the flowers!
