Ladies, Let's Ride Wednesday @7p (SW Fairmont Loop)

  • Debra's House

    2893 SW Upper Dr, Portland, OR (map)

    45.507267 -122.707672

  • "Ladies only", sorry guys. Must be able to ride at least 12 mph.  Ride announced each week, and distance will vary between 20-40 miles in various areas.  We are friendly and welcoming but please come ready to workout and challenge yourself.   Wheels rolling at 7pm

    Ride Leader: Debra or Laura

    Route:  Ride up Upper Dr, turn on Montgomery to Patton to Talbot to Fairmount loop.  We may ride up to Council Crest  and down a couple of times and around the loop.  Approximately this but doesn't include multiple loops.  http://ridewithgps.com/routes/4302147  :)

    Fuel for the Ride: Rides are likely to last 2-3 hours. Be sure to bring both water and snacks. (Larabars are my favorite, protein and sugar in one bar).  

    Weather Policy: This ride will only cancel for heavy rain, snow, ice and other conditions we do not like. Light showers are no big deal. Cancellations will be posted no later than 11:00 AM on the day of the ride. 

    Required: 
    • Helmets must be worn at all times while riding. This is a requirement for all NW Butts on Bikes rides. This is one of the basic (and simple) ways we protect ourselves from injury. Please don't forget your helmet! 
    • Bring a right-size spare tube. If you get a flat, we can probably help, but you need to supply the tube! 
    • Your bike must be in good working order. If you're not sure, stop by a local bike shop and ask a mechanic to look it over for safety and basic ride-ability 
    • Cell phone - never go on a ride without one! 
    • No ear buds please 

    Strongly recommended: 
    • Winter riding gear! We will be biking in the elements. Be sure to get the gear required to stay warm and dry. Extremities are especially vulnerable (head, hands, feet).  Latex gloves for under or over your gloves... fingers warm up quickly & light to carry. 
    • Sun/riding glasses (protection yourself from the sun and little flying bugs that can wreck your vision in an instant!) 
    • Water: Bring some! 


    Pace and Terrain: See above 


    Ride Difficulty Scale For Road Rides: B / 5

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
