Big Eastside Loop - 30 Miles Non-Stop

  • This location is shown only to members

I feel like I haven't ridden for weeks!  Time to get back on the bike and ride.  This ride is for the "can't talk too busy pedaling" types who do not like to take long breaks and can ride 15 mph on the flats.

The route will take us through East Portland out to Gresham and return via Milwaukie.

Pace: ~15 mph on the flats.

Start Time: We leave at 10:00 AM sharp so please plan accordingly.  We honor those who arrange their schedule to be on time.

Distance: ~30 miles

Hills: Any hills that get in our way will cause regroups at the top.  Fairly flat with  elevation gain of 947 feet.

Attitude: We will be moving along with no long breaks.

Traffic: Be comfortable riding around and in traffic. 

Group Ride, but please be comfortable with continuous riding with no long breaks. 

Ride Leader: Jan Westfall[masked]  [masked]  Please call or email with any questions.

Weather Cancellation Policy: We ride in rain showers but brutal cold, soupy fog or sideways rain will cancel.

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.  Carry a credit card and a little cash to buy refreshments.

Mandatory for all riders.

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.

All riders must have their rides in good working order and must bring a flat kit & spare tube on all rides. 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!

All riders must be able to change a flat should they have one or have a way to get picked up (AAA, a friend…). There is often but not always someone on the ride who knows how to help you change your tire so plan accordingly.

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.

    Thanks everyone for riding. I sure enjoyed exploring the roads after we left the bike path. It was great to have Jose back and riding with us. Thanks Joel for helping lead and dealing with my faulty Garmin issues. It was a good day on the bike!

    Another fabulous ride with a great leader! Thanks for easing those of us who haven't been consistent back into the saddle! Nice to see all of you again. Hope to one day keep up with the speedy leaders.

    Jan, sorry to have missed your ride, would have loved to ridden with your group but I'd been watching the weather forecast and today looked like my best option for my February Century. Weather cooperated so took off at 5 am this morning. And, Coincidentally I was riding by Sellwood Riverfront Park about 7:30 this morning... Imagine that!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
