Note: This is a continuation of my previous post Giving Clipless Another Chance. You may need to read that post for background details.
I still seem to have the flu so I kept my ride today short and that was a good thing. Here’s what I noticed today on my first ride with Crank Brothers Eggbeater Clipless Pedals and Shimano Shoes.
Bennett on Portland Bike Trail by Airport
I have never been much of a fan of Rail Trails and Bike Paths. For me they just don’t seem to serve much purpose except in Urban areas and in the West where they need all the help they can get to survive the traffic. I often feel that paths are being put where they are easy to build not where they are useful or desirable.But after attending some Rail Trail Meetings, I feel bicycle riders are sometimes being used by the Rail Trail Movement. Their philosophy is that here is a resource let’s grab it before it is gone. They also sometimes cover the desire to use the land for another purpose.
