Slo-Spokes 25 miler in Hillsboro farm country

I used to post Senior Momentum rides which are a little slower, a little easier and posted for us seniors who like things a tad mellower. But sometimes there were younger folks who thought "but that ride is for the old geezers" and hesitated to sign up.

Thus the new nomenclature: Slo-Spokes (as ins Slow pokes?).

Thursday I'm doing one of the nicest easy rides I can think of. It's in Hillsboro farm country. It is 25 miles and is about as flat as you can make it without riding on an asphalt quarter mile track.

I plan to ride 10 to 15 mph and average around 11 mph for the entire ride. I'll be having lunch at McMenamins afterwards for those who wish to join me.

Fast riders can come along too, but if you get ahead of me and we turn you should plan to be on your own.

Bring helmets, some cash or a credit card, a spare tube that fits your bike, something to blow it up with (at least a threaded CO2 cartridge--I have the pump) and a sense of humor.

Ride leader phone: 5zero3 2six0 0nine41.

Meet and greet 8:30.  We roll at 8:45 so get there a little early or you might be left behind.

Here is the route:  http://ridewithgps.com/routes/796636

    Great ride, Kerry. A perfect distance and pace for me, and I couldn't ask for nicer weather, either.
    I hope you'll have more rides like this before the summer is over!

    Hey, I liked being the sweep -- it was rather leisurely! Thanks everyone, especially Kerry, for a lovely ride!

    We have a big group! 13 here, 4 from Wilsonville Wheelers and 1 from Portland Recumbent Cycling, with one day left to sign up. Holy crap. :)

    With the early start it will probably be a bit early for most of us for lunch, but maybe a nice cold drink would be nice. We'll decide after the ride.

    Place to Park: Imbrie Hall lot, on Imbrie directly across from Fred Meyer. If you park in the main lot you'll miss us and wonder where we are.

    I will also bring a guest ... Our exchange student from Spain's Basque Country, Xabier (a great addition to our ride).

      Thanks Mark. I have been back in the saddle all summer, just not on BoB. Out Spoke'n and Portland Recumbent Cycling and the Wilsonville Wheelers to name a few.:-)

    Great to see you leading rides again Kerry! I won't be able to join you on this one, but I'll keep my eye open for a future ride.

    • Kerry M.

      Hey, Rog, good to hear from you. But we'd be too slow for you Thursday anyhoo! :)
