I don’t want to spend Christmas alone so let’s ride our bikes and eat. The ride and distance will depend on the weather and who signs up. Options are the Hagg lake loop, Clapshaw hill hillside loop, Carpenter creek, or just ride the bike trails around Forest Grove. This will be a social ride so no one will be dropped.
Some of the possible routes.
After the ride potluck at my house in Forest Grove or we can find a restaurant if a lot of riders sign up. I have a 3 burner grill so bring something to grill. I don’t know what I will make probably something with squash.
RIDE LEADER CONTACT INFORMATION: E mail me on meetup if you have any questions.
WHAT TO WEAR: Helmets must be worn at all times while riding. This is a requirement and not a request. I advise against wearing cotton since it doesn’t wick moisture and it chafes. Spandex and synthetics like polyester are great.
WHAT TO BRING: 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. Sunscreen, Carry a credit card and a little cash to buy refreshments and to reimburse anyone who might have to provide you with anything like a tube or a CO2 cartridge.
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!
