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.
