Joining a road ride

A road ride has been listed on Bendcycling and I am going to ride with them at least for a while(probably to Sisters and then go separate ways) I will be on my MTB and looking to ride all day. So really this meetup is for about 1.5 hrs and then you will get to choose whether you want to follow me, the others, or take your own path. If you think you may want to stick with me ride a MTB and be prepared for a LONG day(bring a light). You need to be familiar with the roads between Bend and Sisters as you could end up alone.

The ride is supposed to go out Sisemore and be endurance paced. Generally this time of year I expect it to be a reasonable pace if you are on a road bike.

To be safe I am going to call this an ADVANCED, SELF supported, you may get DROPPED kind of ride. We will be in the presence of riders not affiliated with BACE so you need to be aware that they can do whatever they want.

Meet at Backporch coffee at 11:00 am. From there we will follow them.

    David, do you know what the road group mileage will be? If I ride my MTB is there any chance I could be close to Bend after 4 hours? (no lights)
