Isn't there a fairly new bike shop in Hillsboro that sells used bike? I thought I heard that somewhere. Thanks

Good luck with your trip!

I've gone to the beach from Portland as late as the day after Thanksgiving without any trouble. It might be a little rainy, but you should be fine.

Mid-October? No worries about snow at that time.

Here's what I got about the rationale for chipsealing vs. asphalting:

"With road maintenance needs outpacing available road maintenance funding, the county is faced with having less resources for...

It's Washington County that doing the chipsealing. I made the comment about chipsealing on their FB site. I'm sure it was appreciated!

Chipsealing in Washington County

I'm not the most political person, but chipsealing is my trigger. Anyway, Washington County is chipsealing the entire county, apparently. I wrote to the Department of Transportation, voicing my...

2013 McKenzie Pass?

Anyone know the condition of McKenzie Pass? Lots of snow? A little snow? This year is the year I ride that when bikes can safely get to Sisters.

They have to stop this chipseal stuff, it's destroying tires and is the worst surface in which to ride. Of course, this is probably of little concern to them, but I'll write them anyway. I wrote to...

PDX to The Dalles

My daughter will be moving to The Dalles. So, of course, that'll be my new route. Will the Old Gorge Hwy take me to The Dalles? I'm guessing the earliest I'll be able to ride it is this coming...

Thanks

Jeff and Lovedoctor (can I call you Mr. Doctor?),

Thanks, that's the information I was looking for. I think I may take a drive up that way before I go on the roads. I don't really want to get lost...

Hwy 30 to Skyline

I'd never go Cornelius Pass, too much traffic. I'd suggest Rocky Point, it's like someone else said, a constant climb, but a little out of town. Germantown is close to town, but really steep. If you...

REI Bike Tour

Has anyone ever taken an REI bike tour? I took one with Trek this last summer and loved it. REI has one that looks good. The price is less than Trek's. Any comments? Thanks

Chipseal

It's the worst. The county is putting it everywhere. I also would argue that it doesn't make the road any better than it was before. If someone would run for office on the platform of stopping all...
