Breathe Right Strips

When you remove these things, be sure to wash off all the glue left behind.
Otherwise, stuff will stick to your nose, stuff like bumblebees.

Road rage on the Hawthorne Bridge

I never move over to the right when crossing the bridge. If the guy behind me starts with the "On your left" crap, I stop. With any luck, the guy following does too.

Bicycler road rage

Anyone else experience these crazy people who yell for you to get out of the way while crossing the Hawthorne bridge?
I would like to see it made a no passing zone.

Robobike in Sellwood rents tandems, battery powered, recumbent and cargo bikes. Don't think they have anything you would describe as a road bike, though.

The announcement about the opening day ride to Keizer Volcanoes baseball was removed from this forum. Probably not the place to announce private party rides and if that is the case, then please let...

Portland isn't what it was twenty years ago when saying hello or good morning was expected. Things have changed.

Due to a lack of leadership by our city government, the Opening Day ride from the Robobike Shop to the ball park is not being held this year; mostly because we no longer have a ball team.

Hawthorne Bridge

Close calls? That's a way of life on the HB. How about we make the Bridge a no passing zone? Too many speedsters with a death wish mixing with too many people who just want to cross the bridge. We...

SuperBowl ride

Cars seem to stay home during the big game. Perfect time to ride! Meet at the Robobike Shop in Sellwood at 10:00 and we'll go somewhere, just like last year.

No Passing on the Hawthorne Bridge

Mr. Falcon
Just because you say passing is OK doesn't make it safe.
This is a dangerous stretch and passing other bikes, either left or right, tinkling and yelling or not, makes it more so. Sadly,...

If you building a bike trailer and consider using 8mm diameter carbon fiber rods, then either use a whole bunch of them or use a really big one.
A dumb idea.
