The Ride: A 25 mile flat loop around Sauvie Island. Meet and greet at 9:30 a.m. Wheels roll at 10:00 a.m. sharp. This is a social ride where nobody will get dropped and we'll wait for everyone at the turns. But, please make sure you fit the target rider profile, and that your gear is in good working order.
Target Riders: Casual cyclists who are comfortable with the distance (25 miles) and pace (13-16 mph on the flats).
Rain Policy: There is a chance of rain in the forecast. If it is coming down too hard ahead of the ride, I will cancel. If it is only overcast or raining lightly I will stick with the plan, but feel free to bail if you are nervous about the conditions.
Ride Leader: Roger Hurwitz [masked])

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.
