We will meet Saturday 10am, at the Backporch Coffee Roasters 1052 NW Newport Ave and ride the 32 mile twin bridges loop*, which includes many miles of the Scenic Bikeway and 1600 ft elev gain.
Riding time will be approximately 2 1/2 hours.
This ride is for solid intermediate riders.
For the purpose of this event, a solid intermediate rider is one who is comfortable in pace lines and able to hold 16-17 mph for extended periods on flat terrain with no wind, by yourself. Group pace lines will be a little faster.

    I rode much of that loop on Friday (58 degrees, sunny, hint of a breeze) and be advised they are doing utility work on Collins Road and the pavement is gone in a few places.

    I think I can keep the pace you are requiring...if not I know my way back and could possibly excuse myself from the ride, cheers

    This sounds like a good ride for me but I am committed to another meet-up already. Please schedule another soon with a little more lead time. I am looking for cycling buddies for 30 to 40 mile rides in maybe the 15-16 average mph range.

    Thank you for defining the level this ride is intended for! Wish I could join you but I am still recovering from surgery and haven't been cleared for fun yet. In the future it is very helpful to describe and define the skill/fitness level so please keep that up! Have a fun ride!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
