In Out Spoke'n, anyone who posts a ride is a ride leader. So if you feel the urge, and have a ride you're doing and would like to invite others to join you, GO FOR IT!
Who we are: Out Spoke’n is the greater Portland area’s recreational bicycling club for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender community and their friends. What unites our members is a love of cycling and a desire to ride with others who either share our persuasion or who do not merely tolerate our differences but embrace and celebrate them.
How we operate: We will not have a roster of regular ride leaders. Instead, any member of Out Spoke’n can post a ride that he or she intends to do and invite others to join them. You can set the route, the time, the speed, the skill level, the maximum number of riders and anything else that might be important to you. If you need help in posting a ride, just contact the Organizer or someone else who has already posted one and we’ll help one another.
Requirements: Everyone must wear a helmet on every Out Spoke’n ride. Bikes should be in serviceable condition and be properly equipped. Every rider should always carry at least one spare tube that fits his or her bike, a patch kit and some kind of pump----CO2 being the fastest and the best.
Safety is always a primary concern. Each rider is responsible for his or her own safety and is expected to ride in a manner which does not create a danger to others.
