Sloth Ride

Tonight's ride (6/18/13) is still a go.  Either Barb or Sharon will be the ride leader -- depending on how Sharon is feeling.

Have you wondered about our Tuesday night Hares n Hounds Chase Game ride, but were a little intimidated by the intervals or pace?  Well, this week is your week to come out and see the gorgeous route.  I will be leading a Sloth (we may be slower but we aren't lazy) Ride.  We'll be taking our time on the 12 mile route (an optional 3-4 extra miles can be added at the end for those that want more).  Let's see what all the fuss is about out there.  Both groups might gather for a post-ride social (to be determined at the ride).

Who will enjoy this ride: Beginners. We'll try to ride as a group, but if the gaps between each rider gets too big, not to worry, we'll be regrouping often so no one feels left behind.

Traffic: We are on very low traffic rural roads.

Start Time: Wheels rolling a 6:00 pm.

Directions: Take the I-5 exit just south of the Boone Bridge in Wilsonville (#282 from the south & 282-B from the north) and go west one half mile to the Marina Parking area. Look for people with bikes. Arrive a few minutes early if you can. Wheels rolling at 6:00 pm.  PLEASE NOTE:  There are 2 parking lots.  If the main parking lot is full/busy with boaters, look for us in the overflow parking area which is slightly further west and on the other side of the road.

Bring: Appropriate fluids/snacks for about 1½ hours. Please bring a tube and a way to inflate it. Please make sure your bike is in good mechanical condition and you are able to change your flat tire.

Mandatory for all riders. Helmets must be worn at all times while riding. This is a requirement and not a request. 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.

RIDE LEADER CONTACT INFORMATION: Sharon (503) 970 four four 50 or [masked].

    i'm sorry, I miscalculated my timing. I have to take my daughter to an appointment in Portland at 4:15, and there is no way I'll be able to get to Boone's Ferry Marina in time. I wish I was going, enjoy your ride!

    Too much to do to get ready for my 4 day trip to the Cascade Lakes with the kayak club. See you next time. Glad to see the Sloth return!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
