Why do you join BOB? Select 1 or more: Train for an event , which event? Make friends. Start exercising. New riding routes. Other (please specify)

Training for BikeMS and Cycle Oregon 2013. As my distances get longer, it's getting harder to find good, safe routes. I'd like to try out a few group rides.

How often do you ride? How long do you ride? At what speed do you ride?

4X/week, 150+ miles, 15-18 mph, 13 on a hilly route.

What has been the longest ride you have been on recently?

55 miles, Willamette Valley, some rollers and some flat.

Which type of rides will you prefer? Short (easy 10-20 mile) casual? Intermediate (12 mph or so, 35 mile plus)? Challenging (40 mile plus with hills, 16 mph)? A mix or other (please specify)

Working my way to longer, hillier rides. Trying not to be crushed by the 100 mile 1st day of BikeMS or the Strawberry Mountains in Cycle O.

What areas would you like ride ?

Greater Portland, preferably but not strictly Clackamas County.


Returning to cycling after a 20 year hiatus. "It's never too late to start (over)!"
