this is a nice ride 56 miles from my house. loud on hwy 30 on the way  in sections, but otherwise a pretty nice, pleasant, flat route.

The pace is going to be vigorous at times. Several regrouping opportunities we will take advantage of:


1.) we will ride together to get to Marine Drive together (strung out, but together).


2.) fast on Marine Drive regrouping at 33rd, and ride together on Bridgton Road, and on to the other side of Hwy 5 on Marine Drive via bikeway.


3.) regroup at bathroom at Kelly Point Park


4.) ride together to Hwy 30


5.) regroup at store on Sauvie


6.) regroup at store again on Sauvie


7.) regroup at St. Helens  Road and Hwy 30 (or at Western Bike Works)


8.) ride together through town, over the Steel Bridge and all the way back.

Take it easy, have some fun. Dress for super cold weather. 

Sign up sheet will be in effect. 

I'll heat the house so we can warm up and snack on something when we get back.

If the ride gets "wildly popular" as I could hear Eric say, then I prefer to have separate smaller groups  go out (like the Portland Velo does). We will play it by ear.

Also, I want to take this opportunity to talk to anyone interested in signing up a new sponsor to our group that I've been working on.

    Very fast for me but that is what you need to expect on a Doak ride. Great group of people and good food at the end.

    what a kick ass day! I know Patrick felt it....I played like I didn't feel it as much, but I definitely did.
    http://ridewithgps.com/trips/2034390 is my stats.
    Dave, I really did kick butt on Sauvie's loop. I think I averaged 20mph or maybe a little more.
    Big fun after party too We missed you for that section Dennis.
    Great riding with you all!

    how about a later start time to avoid such frigid conditions on Sauvies? I'll bring a crock pot of chili!

    sounds fun, wish I could come. I'm a little short of time Saturday and have to be done by Noon. Will probably do something closer to home.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
