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)

All of the above! It's way more fun...and safer to ride in a group.

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

It used to be a lot more often but now about 2-3 times a week. Distance really depends on how much time I have but usually 20-40 miles at 16-18 mph.

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

33 miles but any distance works.

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)

A good mix.

What areas would you like ride ?

Portland, Beaverton, Vancouver


Got more serious about riding back in 2008 and love everything about it! Except the flats! Lol

What Doug U. is saying about this Meetup Group

Last night was only my second ride with the BOB group but I've been impressed so far because everyone has been very welcoming, friendly, and fun. Seems like a much more social group than some others I've been involved with. Several of us even went to a pizza place after the ride last night which was great.
