Is it summer?



I had a joyous morning of bike commuting today. The tree leaves are at postcard levels of beauty, and the balmy weather seems a bit unreal.



If you usually put your bicycle in the garage at the end of September, tomorrow is forecast to be grand. It could be a good day to get your bike out.



Did you ride transit to work? Your potential joys are at least equal of your bike commuting cousins. Why not get off the bus a few stops earlier and enjoy your neighborhood? You'll arrive home in a good mood from the autumnal beauty and the endorphin release that accompanies physical activity.


We know that we're in for a La Nina fall/winter season, but that doesn't mean you can't still enjoy the outdoors during your commute.


TriMet has some great tips for fall and winter riding.


 If you'd like to give fall and winter bike commuting a try, you can check out our free All Season Cycling workshop at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 20th at Ron Russell Middle School at 3955 at SE 112nd Avenue. This is part of one of the City of Portland's Fix It Fairs where there will be dozens of workshops on healthy living and saving energy costs by making your house more energy efficient.


If you learn by reading, you may want to download our Guide to Your Ride or Riding in the Rain and and Night Riding Tips. You can also order it here.


Photo reminder that it is indeed fall.
