This will actually be my first bike in the Portland area (rode for years down in CA) but looking forward to the ride out to Astoria in the summer.In the late 70's I lived in Cedar Mill which was wilderness back then lol. I worked on west Burnside then for years on Hwy 30 (St Helen's Rd). That was before (and during) construction of the 26 into portland. So I went up the forest and over the top from Cedar Mill right down onto 30. It truly sucked in snow and deer were everywhere. But man I loved it. Especially if I was off work and riding to the coast for pancakes in Astoria or some such. I looked at a couple houses in St John's but ended up moving down the south valley. I still regret selling that Cedar Mill house!
What's your current favorite ride?
