The ride : This ride is my favorite night ride.
I expect a pace of somewhere in the 13mph-15mph vicinity. Pretty comfortable for most folks. We will ride 26.7 miles very casually around N/NE PDX. Very social, great for folks that haven't ridden with us before. Nobody gets dropped, ever.
Most of this ride will be before sunset. We may finish in the dark! Working lights are mandatory.
Weather Policy: Cancellations will be posted 2 hours before ride time.
CELL PHONE: Never go on a ride without one.
No Earbuds Please.

Rider requirements - Working lights are mandatory. Helmets must be worn at all times while riding. This is a requirement and not a request. Always bring 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.
