Yesterday I rode to work for the first time. I recently changed jobs and am now working in the NW region of downtown Portland.

I took a great ride out to the gorge today. It was so fun getting to head up to one of my favorite places. This was the first time riding in the Gorge since the fires this summer. Hwy 14 was busy but I was still able to have a brisk ride. #aerostich Continue reading Out Hwy 14
