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)

To meet new people to ride with, make new friends, find new routes, get exercise, and have fun!

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

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.

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

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.

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)

Intermediate to challenging, depending on what kind of shape I'm in.

What areas would you like ride ?

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.

What Trudy H is saying about this Meetup Group

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.
