SE Portland Loop

 

This is your opportunity to explore some of the SE Portland neighborhoods. The ride will start in North Milwaukie near the Springwater Trail, where we will head west on the Springwater Trail and north along the Willamette waterfront trail, then head east on Clay and then Clinton and make our way to the I-205 Trail and the Springwater Trail back to Milwaukie, with a stop for lunch at Cartlandia.

Plan to be at the ride start at 10:00AM for meet & greet, pre-ride briefing and ride preparations. We will hit the trail at 10:15AM sharp.

NOTE: This ride will be an excellent opportunity for new and future ride leaders to assist with the ride.

    The current weather forecast is looking like any rain will end before ride time and we will have somewhat cool and dry weather for the ride.
