A beautiful, solid-intermediate ride for this time of year! Just over 13 miles. We will do the loop clockwise. Sunset is at 8:51. We'll head west up the aerobically challenging Tumalo Ridge. It's a long climb to get up, but once on top there's nothing to slow us down. A couple short rocky sections. The views are incredible. Some short and old jeep trail before hitting the Swede Ridge Shelter, then along Swede Ridge Trail to Swampy. From Swampy we'll take the South Fork back.
Please bring water, some energy food, a lighting just-in-case, emergency bike repair gear, and appropriate clothing for inclement weather.
To carpool we'll leave 6:00 pm at the parking lot outside new Goodlife Brewing in Bend's Century Center. That's just east of the Dutch Brother's on 14th, or just west of Nosler Corp on Columbia. Please be on time - we leave 6:00 PM.
