This ride will be a casual pace for an advanced rider or a somewhat strenuous pace for an intermediate rider. Intended to be kind of a prep for the thrilla series cross race on Thursday. We will probably ride Mt Washington to Skyliners and the turn onto 4606 which will take us to Shevlin park. Then we go towards town and turn east on Mt. Wahington. We will drop down Archie Briggs and go into Sawyer park. Ride the river trail down to Portland Ave and back to the start. If that is not enough we can add a little chunk in the Sawyer park area to extend the ride(maybe swing through Tumalo park). So really not a lot of climbing, hopefully we can ride this feeling fresh and not wear our selves out. An easy spin!
So the ride will be a mix of some dirt roads/paths and pavement. Cross bikes would work best but a mountain bike would be ok if you have good rolling tires or a lot of energy. I think there might be a little single track as well. Don't forget to bring spare tubes and plenty of liquid as it will be warm and we are trying to treat our bodies well before the race. By the way non- racers are very welcome.
