Come and join Beth and I on a casual Sunday morning ride. The forecast calls for thundershowers, but they usually don't happen until the afternoon. Bring a light jacket if you are concerned, or for warmth when we start out. We will begin at Panera Bread in Hillsboro, near NW Cornelius Pass Rd. and NE Cornell Rd., and after a quick jaunt through a lovely little park, head NW out of Hillsboro through the beautiful Washington County countryside, past the Old Scotch Church, then loop back around into Hillsboro via a fun little drop, where we'll roll through the city and on our way back to our starting location.
Time: Meet and Greet 9:40am; Be ready to ride at 10:00 AM.
Distance: 26.3 miles
Terrain: flatish with only one small hill, BUT, you'll be going DOWN it!! :)

All riders must have their rides in good working order and must bring a flat kit & spare tube on all rides. Should damage occur that is beyond repair, plan to have a way to get picked up (AAA, a friend...). If you have a flat, there is often, but not always, someone on the ride who knows how to help you change your tire.
If there is an issue with proper working or lack of equipment, you may be asked to sit the ride out. Please ask for help if you are ill equipped prior to the ride. We will try to help!
