The Bike Bunch has scheduled rides every Wednesday, April through October. The season's schedule is distributed online, including route sheets for all scheduled rides.
We normally start riding each Wednesday promptly at 10 AM, or at 9 AM when KGW.com/weather forecasted high for Portland is 80 degrees or more. 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 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, etc. for a brown-bag lunch, 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 belated New Year’s party.
