The Spring/Summer 2023 issue of the Rails to Trails magazine included Exploring the Evolution of E-Bikes in America. The last section was titled But Is It Cheating? That is always the common exclamation from the purist bicyclist, and maybe the most ignorant advocates.

Claire Martini, the project manager for the Leafline Trails Coalition of Washington State, said "Are multiple gears cheating? Is a lightweight carbon-fiber frame cheating? Suspension?"

RIde and Cookout from The Farm, Saturday, 6/17/23

This Saturday, we are going to have a ride from The Farm followed by a cookout.  The ride will start at 7:45AM so I can get back and get the grilling going. 

I am smoking a butt on Friday and grilling brats and burgers on Saturday following the ride. 

Bring your favorite side, your favorite adult beverage and your favorite CHAIR and enjoy a lazy comfortable afternoon under the tree canopy following the ride.  Significant others and more than welcome since they have to put up with us riders leaving them on their own every Saturday. 

PLEASE post of you are coming so that we know how much food to prepare.

See you on the road,

41 miles Rest Stop 21
44 miles  Rest Stop 24
50 miles Rest Stop 29
55 miles  Rest Stop 34

Mark Leaves for Oregon

Mark leaves on Sunday for his bike packing from the Pacific to the Atlantic. On this YouTube he describes his camping gear. I can't remember half the gear he has. (That's why my touring is Inn-to-Inn.) But then again he is a camping expert and only 70 some years old. . 

Few of us could handle this adventure. So, I am looking to watch him as he shares his ride on YouTube for the rest of us. Good luck Mark.
