Just read a great article penned by Bike Snob NYC in this month’s Outside magazine. The Snob took a trip to the golden city of safe bicycling and chronicled his exploits.
His nod to coffeeand its importance to biking…
“The city is also drenched in quality coffee and beer, arguably the ideal pre- and post-ride beverages, so you can always slip into a cafe or bar while you wait out the weather.”
“I notice that the 20-foot bike corral outside is brimming with practical yet stylish rides, like a hitching post in a hipster western.”
I loved the imagery created by that one.
And we need moreof these in my town…
“…next door to a coffee shop with a “bike-thru” window.”
About Portland OR in general he says…
“…this town is indeed like a revolving door of cycling pleasure.”
