Thinking about quiet rides when I drive across the country this summer I came upon this on Trails.Com. Now all I have to do is find something free with a few more comments. http://www.trails.com/toptrails.aspx?area=12399
Did this ride Memorial Day, 2009 for the first time.
I tried to input it via MapMyRide.com which put out a nice map, but was miserable to work with as I was using the free version and not the paid version so every point you edit it scrolls off the screen. So far, that leaves me with Google Maps and that became as time consuming as anything else. So far, 30 minutes wasted and no maps. Great tools out there, but is it any wonder they are robustly used.
My wife observed the results, the car did stop and assist, a collision outside Movie Madness on Belmont. I reminded her to post on BikePortland.org and specifically could not remember the link to the reporting database:
B-SMaRT ~ Bike Safety Monitoring and Reporting Tool
community based data to improve bike safety
A reminder to post when you see an incident so the community can keep aware of the statistics and that some can follow up when and where further attention as well as care are needed.
From the book Rubber To The Road a web site Rubber to the Road is produced by Dave Guettler. Ride information for this website is compiled and written by Jacob Erker. Rides from the print series by Peter Marsh and Otis Rubottom.
I did the Find the Gnomes ride which has a detailed map at GPSies.com http://www.gpsies.com/map.do?fileId=jrprsomieuxgofth.
Megan went with me and we did not see one Gnome AND I missed the left hand turn on Skyline after Germantown Rd and so cut the ride short.
First ride is on the schedule for Friday the 13th. We ride to the Willamette River down the Springwater Trail OR as far as need be to find Stumptown.
Let me know if you want to come, start time “the end of the day”, this is an “any speed” ride. Come along
