STP Packet Pickup Pedal Potluck

  • Jul 6, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Ride 45 miles and 3300 feet through Happy Valley, around Mt. Scott and cross town to the Pearl. We'll stop at  REI to get our STP packets. Then down Terwilliger to Lake O, over the bridge to Oregon City and back to Sarah's for a potluck.

Who will like this ride: STP riders of course. Others welcome, as long as you don't mind hanging out at REI for a while.

******************************************************

Ride leader: Adam [masked] , Cell (503)[masked]

Date and Time: Saturday July 6th, Meetup at 11:00 at Sarah's house to drop off potluck stuff.  Wheels spinning by 11:30 am sharp so don't be late!

Meeting Point: Sarah's house - we'll email the address to riders who RSVP

The Route: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/2712179

Terrain: A mix of flat and hills with a couple significant climbs. (The climb up SE 152nd is a bitch.) The tough climbs are all in the first 8 miles.

Pace: Not a maniac ride, but we're all ready for the STP so it's not a slow ride either. Please be able to sustain 15-16 on flat road, although in the city the traffic and stoplights will dictate speed.

Type of ride: Social and relaxed. It's an urban ride, so it's not a race. Wait at hilltops and turns. We will ride as a group and make sure no one is dropped.  

Bring: Your STP Confirmation -- they wont' give you a packet without it!. Spare tube (that FITS your bike!) and a pump or cartridge (make sure it FITS your valves!!).

Post Ride Potluck: There's no theme or main dish planned -- bring whatever you like (but a few vegan dishes will be appreciated by some of your fellow riders :) .
Thanks, Sarah for hosting.

Weather Cancellation Policy: Heavy rain will cancel but light rain or wet roads won't cancel. I will post the cancellation if weather does cause it, but in late June the weather should be pretty nice.


******************************************************

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. Represent us well!

Have their ride in good working order and bring a flat kit & the right size 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 help if we can!

    I just joined this group. Do I have to be participating in next years STP to participate in this? :(

      Joel, feel free to join us. It's a good way to meet some of our group's more active riders. And the post-ride potluck should be fun.
