ER - dual paced options for 23.6 miles around N/NE PDX.

The Ride:It's NOT the usual, old faithful tootle around N/NE PDX. It's a tad longerER for everyone and I'm going to try and find a way where we have a fastER and a slowER group. SlowER will be at our usual 13, fastER at 15. That means the fastER group gets to pizza and beER 13.8 minutes earliER :).

We've been doing this ride for a few weeks and it's easy, fun, safe and social. We will ride 22 miles very casually around N/NE PDX. Very social, great for folks that haven't ridden with us before. Nobody gets dropped, evER.

The Route: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/2728833

Start Time – wheels rolling at 6pm – 5.45pm meet & greet – Call JC if running late[masked]-7644. We always leave on time, but will wait a minute or 2 if you've called to say that you're that close.

Ride leader contact information – Cell is[masked] or email [masked].

Rider requirements - Helmets must be worn at all times while riding. This is a requirement and not a request.
Always bring lights, plenty of water, snacks for energy, a flat repair kit, including a spare tube. A tool kit and small pump is good, but if you don’t have one there is usually someone on a group ride who does (but don’t count on it).

If you are joining the group for the post-ride social, bring a lock.
Carry a credit card, cell phone and a little cash to buy refreshments.
Obey traffic laws and remember you’re a representative of the greater cycling community and should conduct yourself that way on the road. Please represent us well.

    Yep - no rain. Free Vitamin D. Thank you Bryan and Patricia for such a lovely ride. I'll never tire (accidental pun) of riding with you guys. And a big thank you for Heather, Jason, Melissa and Jess (my deaf ear might have screwed up Jess's name) for making that a great post-ride social. So glad that H and J are each mending well. And No, Heather, I promise not to post your updated riding guidelines :) That story was hilarious and with a happy outcome. I'm heading to sleep having had such a great day, thanks to all of you.

      Ok just checking. I figured it wasn't about me n Jason but it was a weird coincidence eh? See ya Tuesday.

      Laughed out loud again. Had to let the dogs out as a result. Context - my crazy brain came up with the idea of a longer and optionally quicker weekday ride. Common theme - ER. Only after posting did I think about ER, as in yours and Jason's staycation destinations. Coincidence, serendipity, whatever. I guess it's all inclusive for riders and those who will (can't wait) be back with us shortly.
