To meet new people to ride with, make new friends, find new routes, get exercise, and have fun!
I used to commute to work, but I'm not working currently. I try to go on at least one substantial ride per week, usually 30-40 miles, unless I'm training for something longer. My comfort zone is 15-17 mph on the flats.
I went on a 60-mile ride last summer and was working my way higher, training for Cycle Oregon. Then I had a nasty bike accident, which prevented me from riding for a couple of months and nixed CO.
Intermediate to challenging, depending on what kind of shape I'm in.
Out in the country, in any direction from Portland. Also around the metro area -- Kelly Point, Blue Lake, Springwater, etc.
Young-at-heart boomer looking for biking buddies and new friends.
Good people with a variety of rides--some more mellow, some more maniac, I guess, but I haven't been on those. Lots of interesting routes and destinations.
