Mira's Hagg Lake Ramble -28 or 41 miles

Who will like this ride: "in-between" riders -not serious speed/fitness freaks, but not beginners either. This will be a relaxed pace, recreational ride.

Ride Leaders:  Mira and Rob Burton.

Date and Time: August 25th -meet at 1910 Main St, Forest Grove at 9:00Wheels rolling no later than 9:30

The Route: From Main St, we’ll head SE, and then out to Hagg Lake. After Hagg Lake, you have the 41 mile ride option that goes south to Gaston, or the 28 mile option that skips Gaston. We'll regroup right before you have to decide which route to take.  Here is the 41 mile route:  http://ridewithgps.com/routes/2924281 and here's the 28 mile route:  http://ridewithgps.com/routes/3131346

Both routes are a mix of flats and rolling hills.

Pace: Social and relaxed, but not a "novice" ride. Please be comfortable cruising at 13-15 mph on flat roads, and be ready for the rollers.  We will wait and regroup at turns and hilltops, but we don't want to be overly delayed by folks who really can't keep up.

Bring: Bring a spare tube and a pump or threaded CO-2 cartridge. Maybe a snack for Hagg Lake and some money for post ride enjoyment.

Post Ride: The Tasting Room at 1910 Main  and at the same location is 1910 Main, an American Bistro, which looks interesting and their Happy Hour is from 3 pm to 6 pm. Also Jon Koonce is playing at the Grand Lodge at 5 pm!

Mandatory for all riders.

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!

    Yay -for a great group of riders! The rain and detour didn't hold us back -I'm glad Adam's group could join us for a leisurely lunch.

    Thanks Rob for leading the long ride, Janna for doing wine QC, and thanks to Donna for posting pictures -love the ducks!

    Sorry for the late cancellation, I hope someone on the wait list still has enough time to make it. I miss judged the drive time and I won't make it back in time for another commitment.

    Very bummed. Broke my ankle this week and don't have a hand powered bike. I'm glad there are folks waiting to enjoy the ride. See you next time!

    With 9 people on the waiting list, perhaps I should schedule a different route from that area and help meet the demand? My route would be different from Mira's, so we don't have a real army on the road. Any interest?
