Backlog of Fun

I am overdue a flurry of blog posts, I have pictures queued up for miles!
Enjoy these amazing pictures from featuring a killer bike ride up one of Portland's resident dormant volcanoes, and I will process my pictures sometime this week.

(that's me in the pink skirt and yellow pannier!)
We followed the big bright arrows
All the way to the top!

I made new friends (oh I how I love fellow bike nerds!)
Made it all the way to the top, without stopping! Many red faces greeted me with sweaty smiles.
Played my new ukulele.
Flopped around in several handstands.
Shared so many yummy foods in our celebratory potluck... a latecomer even brought shortcake with homemade strawberry-rhubarb sauce!!
We whizzed full speed down the mountain with the twinkling city lights in the distance.
Came down to earth, had a beer and glided home, back to bed for another day of bike mania fun.

When summer hits in Portland, b*tches go crazy!


  1. I need Portland to move somewhere warmer and sunnier. I love everything about it and have wanted to move there numerous times, but when it comes down to it, I can't handle the pacific northwest rain :/

  2. I love that first picture. That's the great thing about the PNW right? Once the weather turns nice, people are just over the moon : )

  3. what an amazing all the pics. where is your ukelele?? i want to see it!

    oh and shortcake with strawberry-rhubarb sauce?! oh my, to die for.
