    Can you recommend a folding bicycle.
    I know in the past you used a Brompton (don’t know the model).
    I have a regular road bike, I what something to travel with in my car. It has to be able to make it up some steep hills.
    Enjoy the ride.

    I can’t explain it, but this blog post made me cry. I love happy bikey stories.

    So pleased to hear of your recent trip and how your video helped bring cyclists to Eastern Oregon. It’s also great to see how the businesses have welcomed the new business. Have you cycled the Grande Tour Scenic Byway, as well? It’s just over the Blues.

  • Jolene, don’t apologize–it had the same effect on me! I think it’s hearing that it doesn’t take a huge monumental effort to make a real difference; it just takes a willingness to look at things from a different perspective (like the saddle of a bike) and tell people about it.

    Laura and Russ are doing great work and we’re working to emulate them in Washington state, which has great riding and incredible growth opportunities in bike travel. Come bike Oregon AND Washington for quiet back roads, friendly towns, and great ice cream.

  • Russ, I’ve been looking for a 4-5 day solo trip to do in early October. I’m deciding between this loop and a Steens Mountain loop.

    Any thoughts on either route during the first half of October?

    Thanks,
    Jay

    I just finished the 173 miles in 3 days it was hilly and lots of headwinds, but that’s what made it an epic journey. I drove over 8 hours from Tacoma to ride this route. I stayed at the Bike Inn at Mt Vernon and was treated like family, Christy and her family were more awesome. They allowed me to leave my car for 3 days and enjoyed great conversation and food. Everything about this ride that I read about was true. Vehicle traffic was almost zero once you leave hwy 26. I highly recommend this ride to anyone wanting some peaceful and scenic riding.

    Russ and Laura filmed the Blue Mountain Scenic Bikeway this last summer in Heppner, we are looking forward to a similar story in a year. We have all ready hosted a couple of rides of 20+. Christy from the Bike Inn has taken a couple of different groups on part of it. In mid October a friend and I rode various portions of the OWSB and it and the people were awesome.
