Next Meetup

Lower Bridge Loop Road Ride
Saturday looks like it is going to be another nice day to get out on the road. Due to other commitments we are going to get a later start, but we should be able to get it in all the miles before well before dark. Length: 70ish miles Departure: At 2pm sharp (be ready to roll) Speed: 14-15 mph (or marginally faster if there are a few stronger people on the ride that don't mind pulling. The last ride we ended up averaging 16) Ride Rating: Intermediate - due to distance and moderate tempo Route: We will start and end at Pioneer Park. We will head out toward Shevlin, and down Johnson Market Rd. From there we will turn on to Tylers and head to Tumalo Reservior Rd. We willl wind our way over to Hwy 20 and will ride the shoulder for 2 miles before we turn off to take a number of backroads over to Terrabone. From Terrabone we will follow Helmholtz Way and parts of Old Bend Redmond Hwy until we get to OB Riley and back to the park. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/18932159 Please download or print a map so you know how to find your way back home. We will plan to ride as a group, but if you completely fall off the back or take off like a rocket the directions will come in handy. Bring food and enough water for the ride, but in case of emergency there is a food/water stop at mile 43 (Terrabone). Also it is a good idea to bring a taillight and headlight. As soon as we are not prepared for darkness, a flat will occur and the ride will take longer than planned. Sunset is at 7:57 on Saturday. **Rules of the Rides** * Approved Cycling Helmets Required. * Participants must be 18 or over. * To participate in a BACE Meetup activity, you must be a member of the BACE Meetup Group and be RSVP’d “Yes” for that specific activity.
