Like to do longish rides with some hills, but don't ride fast (and don't care to). I ride for the scenery and exercise, not to see how fast I can go or to accumulate miles.
Portland and environs
See intro. Average about 12 mph on longer rides. Hope to find others who like somewhat challenging rides but don't need to average over 15 miles an hour to enjoy riding.
3 season rider, but will ride in winter infrequently. Depending on route and other factors, might be discouraged by wet weather. Less bothered by cold.

Welcome to NumBumz, Paul. We offer year-round rides at all levels around the Portland Metro area and beyond. Find a ride that matches your current pace, distance and endurance levels and come ride with us!
Thanks for hosting, Paul. It was a good time!
Paul, it was good to meet you. I look forward to hear how your new trips would go.
Welcome, Paul. Based on your response to the Intro question, this'll be the group for you. It'll be nice to meet you at our first event (although I have a sense that maybe we've hiked together?).
I met you at the international traveller's meeting and you are friends with Ron and Kathy. I just did this hike 2 weeks ago and it is great. I hope you enjoy it. I keep trying to go on a hike with this group but it fills up so fast I haven't had the opportunity yet. Take it easy.
Hi Paul, may I have your email address so I can communicate with our ride leaders outside of OS? Thanks. [masked]
thanks for that informative profile, Paul. I'm the same - I like longish rides, I ride for scenery not statistics, and my steady pace is about 14. Hope to see you on a ride.
You've come to the right place, Paul. The leadership team here is VERY cognizant of the needs of Novice and Intermediate riders who aren't built/inclined to set speed records. I, like you, ride for pleasure not for pain---that's my motto---and average 12mph on longer rides. I love scenery and looking at something other than my speedometer.
Hi Paul, welcome back. I got busy today and did not get tickets, but I will do it tomorrow, leave one for you there (under "Paul") So, you can come later. I will be there 7:15 at latest. See you tomorrow. Atsuko
