The Bike Bunch has scheduled rides every Wednesday and Saturday, April through October. The season's schedule is distributed online using RWGPS ( https://ridewithgps.com/clubs/941-bike-bunch ), including route sheets for all scheduled rides.
We normally start riding promptly at 9 or 10 AM. If the forecast is rain, we have fewer riders show up. Most of us are retired, or at least working only part time. Typical ages are mid-fifties to mid-seventies, but we have others both younger and older. Some have been cycling for decades and others for only a year or two. Some are pretty fast riders and others like to take a more leisurely, social pace.
Each week the Bike Bunch has as many as 3 starting locations, usually with a couple of route options from each location. A variety of rides are offered throughout the season including start locations East, West and South of Portland, as well as in Vancouver. We ride to a designated park for a brown-bag lunch or restaurant, then return to the start. Distances and ride difficulties (hills) vary, but the rides are typically 35-50 miles long.
Annual social activities include a season kick-off party, summer picnic, Christmas luncheons for both men and women and a New Year’s party.
