Pacific Coast ride

Hey there bike folks. 
I am looking to see if any one has any coppies of the ACA pacific coast bike
trail  maps. I realize that I probably should just purchase them and support
the ACA, but to get the whole route its about $50 which might not sound like a
lot to some of yall, but any money saved will help me make this trip a reality.

Thanks for your help.
Moss

Pacific Coast ride


Hi Moss

Although the ACA maps are very nice, you really don't need them to do the
trip.

If you get the Kirkendall book (used is fine) or even just State maps, you
should do ok. There just isn't much opportunity to go wrong.

I have attached the Oregon guide to the coast bike route.  As much as you
need to get you to California.

You can download detailed California coast bike maps, with most of the info
that ACA maps have, at (for the north coast):  

http://www.dot.ca.gov/dist1/d1transplan/bikeped/bikeguide/index.htm  

For the central coast:

http://www.dot.ca.gov/dist05/bike_ped/bikeguide/bikeguide.pdf  

And I am sure that you can find maps for the rest of the California coast
with a little Googling.

Hope that this all helps.

Re: free Hokey Spokes


These were spoken for yesterday by the first of about 30 people who emailed 
me. I didn't realize how many people would be interested in them. :/

Thanks,

Ride to Seed Saving Workshop (Sat Oct 9)

I'm leading a ride this Saturday (Oct. 9) to a Seed Saving workshop.  (Went to this workshop last year and it was really awesome!)  Ride departs from NE Portland Tool Library (home of the Seed Library, NE 20th <at> Killingsworth) at 1:15PM, workshop starts at 2 o'clock... more info below.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Growing Seeds for Your Garden and Community
with Rachel Freifelder of Handmade Gardens

Saturday, October 9th--- 2PM to 4PM <at> 4446 NE Going St.

(Optional) Group Bike Ride from Northeast Portland Tool Library(NE 20th <at> Killingsworth) to workshop: 1:15 PM <at> NEPTL

Another step toward true community food security. Learn to grow and harvest your own vegetable seeds and plan your garden for seed growing. Which vegetables are easiest to grow to seed? How can I know if my seed will breed true? How do I choose the best individual plants to save seed from? When do I harvest my seeds?

In our abundant organic garden, we will discuss both easy and advanced crops and associated gardening techniques. Participants will get hands-on experience at harvesting and processing homegrown seed. We will also discuss community-level seed sharing. A seed swap will follow the workshop. Feel free to bring seeds to share. Some homegrown seeds will be available to take home.

About the gardeners: Rachel Freifelder and Robert Burchett have between them over 50 years of experience tending organic gardens and farms, and have been stewarding this piece of land together since March of 2007. Rachel offers bicycle-powered garden consultations, lessons and services as Handmade Gardens, Edible and Native Organic Land Care.

Workshop is limited to 20 participants; to register, please contact Chris Price

chris-hTe+RANN9c9mMDnnSGMpU2VsRYzCPl+z@public.gmane.org / 503-206-5552

$5-$20, sliding scale; no one turned away! Barter also encouraged.

some bike joy

i've ridden leif erikson road, 11 miles of car-free bliss, twice in
the past week, and the conditions are primo right now--road still
99.9% dry, some leaves starting to turn.

independent of all the uproar about the decision not to open the park
to new mountain biking, this road is really pleasant riding.  yes, it
is dirt/gravel for the most part, but i ride it on my touring bike
with fairly skinny slick tires and it is not even a little bit
dangerous, even at high speed (at the moment).  if you've never been,
now's a great time--it turns into a bit of a mud-fest once the rains
really set in.  if you've been putting off revisiting it, don't wait
til next season!

be warned though that it is closed at milepost 7 (just north of
saltzmann) til mile 11 DURING THE DAY.  i rode it just after dark
yesterday and it was fine riding all the way through, albeit, really
begging for a most awesome headlight--don't try this without some
serious lumens, and a desire to be alone in the woods =)

i was going to lead a night ride on it, but considering that i like to
ride hard/fast and hills make it hard to keep a group of varying
skills/speeds together and few people have sufficient lighting anyway,
i'm just gonna suggest you get out there, night or day, before it
starts raining in earnest, and have fun.

if you really want company, contact me off-list and we'll head out
there!  i was thinking maybe friday before the MMR, or sometime this
weekend.
