The People’s (Bike) Republic of Portland

I love this crazy town.

Sherry just emailed me a link to Jonathan’s blog, – it looks like the building in Waterfront Park, just north of the Hawthorne Bridge, will be turned into "Bike Republic"  which is described as a "full service bike commuter facility".


But what really got me going was the mention of a cafe run by Laughing Planet… Oh la la, mama needs a big burrito.

Check out for the full scoop and prepare yourself for bike commuter madness.

  1. check again…not so fast…Maus pulled the trigger too early…don’t get out your extra shower towel quite yet.. (yuck).

  2. woops! bummer. I hope they seal it quicklike.

  3. That’s awesome! Biking is much slower to catch on here where I’m at. I bike about 2-3 times a week to work. While there is a bike trail part of the way, once I’m off of that, it is not pro-biker at all. Portland sounds really pretty cool!

  4. Hi-
    This has nothing to do with your post whatsoever (sorry!). I meant to email you a while back when you blogged about having low iron. I found out almost a year ago that I have low iron, though not as low as yours. I took iron pills daily, then twice daily, then two pills twice daily…you get the picture. Not much change, either. If you are having that same issue, I wanted to tell you something that did work, and pretty quickly. (If you’re vegetarian, this won’t work). I began taking liver daily. Not pills, but not cooked either, ’cause I can’t stand that stuff. So I found this idea on the net, and it works: you freeze the liver, and cut off small pieces, still frozen, but small enough to swallow like a large pill. I divide the liver into 3 oz. baggies, and the bag needs to be gone by the end of the week. It’s totally painless and it REALLY raised my iron levels! Anyway, hope that’s going better for you…Zoey
