See you at the Broken Spoke at 6 for our weekly ride.  We leave right on time, unless we know to wait for you!  Females of all ages, abilities and levels welcome to join. We decide where we are going based on who shows; and hence ride length and terrain varies.

Trail Work Party at Grant Street School on Saturday, March 15, 9 am to Noon

The next trail work party sponsored by the City of Port Townsend's Non-Motorized Transportation Advisory Board will tackle some trail clearing through a wooded section of the Grant Street Elementary School property, on Saturday, March 15th, from 9 am to noon.

This short section of trail has some terrain and has been planned in coordination with School and City staff. It will be an important link to connect trails on the McClellan/Hancock corridors to the north and Hendricks/Sherman corridors to the south.

Trail volunteers should meet at Grant Street School (with parking lots available at each end of the school building). Equipment needed will be: clippers, loppers, saws, pulaski's, rakes and work gloves. The volunteer crew will work rain or shine, so be sure to dress for the weather. Cookies, trail snacks and warm beverage will be on hand for ravenous appetites. For more information, contact: jollywahlstrom@yahoo.com or walkers@olympus.net. This rainy weather should let up for the weekend!

To wave or not?


One fall morning last year, People for Bikes president, Tim Blumenthal, arrived at the PeopleForBikes office with a new resolution. “I vow to say ‘hi’ to every other bike rider I pass on my way to work,” Tim declared. “Every bike ride should be a celebration. I’m happy when I’m riding my bike. At the very least, I should muster a smile for the fellow riders I encounter. There’s no room for being smug.”

This idea of Tim’s got the rest of us thinking. Why should we acknowledge other bicyclists, and how should we do it? And what would it look like if every rider did this?

It’s safe to say that greeting another bicyclist—whether it’s with a nod, a smile, a wave, a bell ding, or even a “hello”—can’t hurt, perhaps except in special situations. If you’re flying down a winding, technical descent, you might not want to remove your attention from the road right in front of you. But in most cases, a simple greeting will do no harm. Smiling at another rider will probably make both of you feel good. Research shows that your facial expressions can influence your mood.

Colin Angus - first to circle the world exclusively by human power -

Colin Angus is a leading adventurer, bestselling author and Canadian filmmaker. He was awarded National Geographic’s Adventurer of the Year award for being the first to circle the world exclusively by human power, and was listed by Outside Magazine as one of the world’s top 25 bold visionaries. Angus’s success in achieving the seemingly impossible relies on a unique strategy he has developed for increasing human potential.

He is the author of four books, and his films have been aired around the world on National Geographic television. His talk will touch on several of his adventures, and include an opportunity to meet Colin and ask questions following his talk.

This presentation will be given at 7 pm at the Northwest Maritime Center in Port Townsend, on March 21, with a suggested donation of $15.
