My girlfriend Rachel had one of the drivers show her how when the busses were hanging out at the Pulse downtown and the drivers had some down time.

Hi John,
Just a quick note..glad to see you are still around and seem to be growing.
We just moved closer to Portland..we live in the condos on Ocean Ave so we have a short commute right to the center of  Portland..
I got rid of our second car..an old Honda and am pleased that I lost 5 lbs the first few weeks.
I walk and ride my bike mostly..trying out the bus..anyone know how to get on them and use the rack for bikes?
They should have better marketing ..never clear to me how to go about using them.
I will try to post more in upcoming days..

I love to use Current to network..there is a topic for bikes or what ever..

See you around...
Carolyn

A PUBLIC SERVICE REMINDER from the Portland Bicycle Commuting Meetup:

DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME ENDS next Saturday night/Sunday morning, November 1-2.

That means that starting A WEEK FROM TODAY, your evening commute after 4:30 PM, and progressively earlier, will be after sunset.

If you intend to keep going after this week, this is your last week to equip your bike with lights if you have not already. The next opportunity to purchase discounted red taillights from this group will be at our How to Ride All Winter event on November 12 at the East End Community Center. Until then, you may purchase both taillights and headlights from most local bike stores. Note that Maine law requires nighttime riders to use a headlight in front and either a red reflector or a taillight in the back, all visible from at least 200' away, as well as pedal reflectors or reflective ankle straps.

If you are unfamiliar with your lighting options, the recent message thread on Bike Lights is a good introduction, and has some links to other online resources.

Please ride safely and legally at night! See you around!
