Ladies, Let's Ride Sundays @ 8am Eola Wine Tour

"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 8am

Ride Leader: Debra Rhea 

Route:   Go to Http://www.eolahillswinery.com to register and see the route.   We will be riding from Eola  Hills Wine Cellars, Rickreall, Oregon for the premier bicycle tour through Oregon Wine Country. This cycling event is unlike any other in Oregon. It combines the romance and beauty of the Oregon wine country with the adventure of a 52-mile bike ride. Bike Oregon Wine Country is a moderate to difficult ride depending on the cyclists' skill level. The route takes the cyclists through the scenic Eola Hills. Surrounded by lush vineyards and picturesque countryside, the ride consists of gradual rolling hills combined with several steep hills. The Eola Hills staff will guide the cyclists through seven of the areas local wineries. Support vehicles are provided for any wine purchases or to give our guests a lift. The day ends with wine tasting at Eola Hills and a salmon BBQ on our back patio and next to our waterfall and Koi pond. Box lunches and refreshments are also provided during the event. Bike Oregon Wine Country takes place every Sunday in August. The ride begins at 8am at Eola Hills and generally finishes between 4 and 5pm.  Go to http://www.eolahillswinery.com/ to register now so you don't miss out.

Fuel for the Ride: Rides are likely to last 2-3 hours. Be sure to bring both water and snacks. 

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

    Yes, I was surprised when we got to the top of that Gibson Road Hill that we didn't all just sprint back up again for a repeat! Thanks again for organizing, that was a great ride.
