Portland actually doesn't measure up to Minneapolis or Madison, WI as far as in-town bike only trails. I know that there must be trails that I have not yet found. I look forward to sharing the exploration with others.

What type of peddling experience do you have?

I used to ride around 3K - 4K yearly on road, Mt and town bike. In Portland I average around 1K per year, mostly in town transportation.

Do you own a bike? If so, what type?

My pride and joy is c.1966 Bottechia 64 cm lugged frame "tricked out" w/flat handle bars and single speed rear wheel (not a fixie!) for in town and trail use.

What type of bicycling would you like to participate in this group?

Recreational, right? Maybe do some historical/architectural interpretation on some of the neighborhood rides. Leading architectural walking tours is my main gig in Portland.

Name and places you have peddled or your favorite place.

I have pedaled out and back to Boring on the Springwater Trail. I have pedalled the Vernonia Trail out and back. Both good rides.


Transplant from Minnesconsin. Former roadie and weekend citizen content to ride my single speed "town bike" in Portland and environs and keep my car parked most of the time.
