Kelly Point Park- Easy-paced 26.7 miles around N/NE PDX.

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.

The Route: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/4471098

Start Location - Ride will start at Radio Room, post-ride social there.

Pace 13-15mph

Distance 26.7 miles

Hills Flat. Fitness ½ Day - this should take 2.5 hours

Attitude Social – nobody gets dropped, we regroup at every turn

Traffic Low with bike paths and bike lanes mostly

Start Time – wheels rolling at 6pm – 5.45pm meet & greet – Call Patricia, if running late[masked]-0765. 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 Patricia at [masked]

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.

Note: Your RSVP signifies that you agree to the following. Organizers, event hosts and other participants will not be held responsible for any individual at any event. Each rider rides at their own risk and is solely responsible for any damage to their equipment or themselves.

Final Note: RSVP’s cannot include a +1 or Guest. If you choose to bring a friend or family member, they themselves must sign up as a member of NumBumz.

      You and Sara were both missed last night. I hope you are starting to feel better. Sounds like you got hit hard with illness.

    That ride was the best possible mix of fun people, good weather, and casual but 3 opportunities for "do your own thing" pacing, for variety. Love the route. Patricia rocked it.

    Turned out to be a really nice night for riding and great to see Rob and Heather again. Loved everybody's company at the Radio Room, and laughter galore. Need to address a couple of issues, but otherwise a great ride.

    Dave and I have a conflict so we can open our spots up for the waiting list. It's a great ride, and the weather is expected to be good.

    Ed, made a great comment on his Tuesday morning ride last week on how important sweeps are. Sweeps are very important on rides and how much we appreciate who volunteer for these rides to make sure everybody stays together. Encouragement is much appreciated for regular riders to volunteer so it doesn't always fall on the same person each week.
    Thanks.
