Tickets to ride

What’s worse for schoolkids on summer holiday? Getting up at 7 a.m., or cycling 26 miles with no apparent destination?
I’ll let you know Sunday, Aug. 14, after we’ve completed the annual Providence Bridge Pedal in Portland, Oregon.
I decided to spare Ryan and Emma the 36-mile, 10-bridge option, so we at least have a chance of making it to VooDoo doughnuts by mid-afternoon.
Instead, we’ll cross the Willamette River via eight bridges with Stumptown Coffee coursing through our veins.

Wish us luck!

I have never used the word ‘nestled’ in a travel story.

UK (The Times) and North American daily newspapers (Dallas Morning News, Oregonian, Montreal Gazette, Vancouver Sun/Province) have featured my work for more than 20 years and I have edited travel and adventure sections in Canada and England.

My young family is intimately acquainted with urban bike lanes from Manhattan to Portland. They know a ziptrek from a zipline, a kayak from a canoe, and a luge from a skeleton. In or out of a wetsuit, they know a dive when they see one.

Solo, or with family, I usually travel on a budget and on assignment. Follow my progress here.
