This Meetup is cancelled

The Tuesday Hill Slayer

  • Helvetia Tavern

    10275 Northwest Helvetia Road, Hillsboro, OR (map)

    45.596536 -122.916618

  • South end of the parking lot, near the RR tracks
  • A dose of hardcore bikey rejuvenation: a varying route through bicycle heaven of 25-30+ miles, and 2500+ feet of climbing.  Hardcore is more about attitude than conditioning. Even if you're kind of a slow climber, come on out.  The route will always be hard, but we'll be nice, and if you keep at it, you'll get better.

    This week's route: To be determined.


    Ride leader: Paul Johnston [masked][masked]

    Date and Time of Ride: Tuesdays at 6:00 pm

    Meeting Point: Helvetia Tavern.


    This Week's Route: TBD

    Pace and terrain rating. Maniacal, yet friendly.

    Type of ride: This is a very strong intermediate to expert level training ride. We will regroup at hilltops and major turns. If you are concerned about your ability to keep up, feel free to give it a shot, but be a good sport and be prepared to make your own way back if the pace or difficulty are too much.

      It's raining! I believe I will go home instead and install my fenders.

    It's a bit of a drive for me, so I'll sit this one out as a result of potential weather. Looking forward to getting this ride in sometime, though!

    I'm not going to make this ride, actually meant to cancel it, but if you guys want to continue, I'll leave it up. What do you say about a change of time? It ought to be 5:30 at least.
