I’m not about to get on a bike anytime soon, as anyone who knows me is well aware… And yet PezCycling writer Dave Aldersebaes’ recent article on riding in Portland made me at least think I live in a pretty cool part of the world. It’s certainly one of the reasons my cyclist husband loves it here, and after driving into the Middle of Nowhere, Oregon yesterday to rescue him after a mechanical failure left him stranded (thank goodness for cell phones), I’m fully willing to admit that I get why he loves to ride. All I wanted to do en route to get him was stop and enjoy the scenery with my camera. It’s beautiful country, winding through fields of vines, trees, grains and berries, and I feel very lucky to live here. Even if I don’t see it from the saddle of a bike.

Thanks for the reminder, Dave!
