  • Go Means Go! Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail | GO MEANS GO
    supremacy The complete route which includes sections where you ride along the highway shoulder as well as fully protected sections runs the distance between Troutdale and the Dalles Total distance is just over 80 miles each way For this particular ride we stuck to the sections of the trail that were fully protected for safety sake The trail runs along a ridge line high above the current highway so you get great views and very little road noise 13 or so miles are completely closed to motorized vehicles giving riders a chance to ride at their own pace and stop when they want for photos Along the way are numerous parks to rest or camp at as well as plenty of things to see The Bonneville Dam is on the route as is the Bridge of the Gods and one of the PCT trail heads for you Wild enthusiasts Even though over 300 000 people a day use this trail the path never seemed congested and is very family friendly The parking at the trailheads however paint a different picture so get there early I m planning a trip for later in the summer where I can experience the 160 mile out and back in its entirety so stay tuned I m just waiting for my brother to get settled into his new place in the Portland area so I don t have to pay for parking Leave a comment Our Sponsors Find Us On Facebook GoMeansGo on Twitter Tall Bryan on Instagram Ryan on Instagram Flickr Group Recent Comments Example 1 The Humpday Hustler Benny Blanco June 18 2015 Hi Bryan appreciate the review I m doing the same mod to the lock I just picked up the body does feel bulky and plasticy Just one question where did

  • Go Means Go! Guest post: Bike Theft advice | GO MEANS GO
    bike in order to exchange it for some quick cash Usually the ad you may find on Craigs List is incredibly naïve While someone legitimately selling a high end bike would relate meticulous detail on things like the size and the components these thieves typically don t provide any of that information because they really haven t a clue My ad said I don t have time to ride my bike anymore so I m selling it That s it nothing more When I found the ad I went to the police to ask their advice and they said just answer the ad as you would inquire for any bike I actually did as they suggested but that s terrible advice and I would certainly do it differently today I created a fake gmail account and responded to the ad asking What condition is it in which is fine but then I asked What size is it and what components are on it Those latter questions were perfectly normal questions any cyclist would want to know the answers to but in this case they were a big mistake for two reasons First it might seem too inquisitive and make them suspicious Second as above they don t know the answers to those questions They are simply looking for someone who will give them quick cash for their stolen goods I never got a response Instead I should have said I would like to buy the bike if you still have it when can we meet Let me stop here and say that getting a response from the thief is critical to any chances of recovering your bike If you can t lure them into setting up a meeting or even to give you more information about themselves you re going nowhere I would also suggest that you recruit several of your friends to respond to the ad as well it will improve the odds of a response Once the thief responds to one of them contact the police immediately and try to coordinate a sting operation In terms of dealing with the police you will probably end up filing the initial police report over the phone but at some point you should march yourself down to the station and talk with someone face to face and hand them any documentation you have It will make the case more real and will also help your credibility and demonstrate that you are serious about getting to the bottom of this My case got nowhere until I went to the police station and handed the officer a photograph of the bike and a full page list of how it could be identified He pledged to take that information to the detectives the next day and he did The detective called me and we had several discussions after that My own story didn t have a happy ending though despite what you read about on what seems a regular basis The detective handling my
