    Have a trip to Portland lined up in September. 2 weeks biking followed by 2 weeks of… something else. Anyone been and have any ideas / recommendation? Its that, or come back and spend 2 weeks in the Lake District (which I’m not averse to but while I’m out there…)

    I’ve heard Portland is a cool city to just hang out in. Only been to Seattle in WA, which was fun to hang out in. 2 weeks is a long time in a city IMO, Vancouver is another nearby, San Francisco further but unmissable IMO.

    I like Rough Guides.

    IMO too.

    Thinking more of activities in the ‘countryside’ – they have ‘countryside’ in ‘Merrka right?

    Are you kidding?

    Crown Point

    Seaside

    Mt Hood

    And it’s over the border in WA, but
    Paradise

    But the Lake District is lovely

    Watch the US series “Portlandia” (netflix or youtube clips of it) and it will tell you all you need to know about the fixie hipster vegan lesbian/bi/gay metrosexual bearded ecowarrior types you will encounter.
