This is a training ride with distance and hills suitable for slower hill climbers who can ride distance. We are going to try out some new roads, one of them is the climb to the Pittock Mansion near the end. Several of us are training for the John Day ride coming up in a few weeks.
Route: We are riding a big loop starting in Raleigh Hills, going to OC, East Portland, Vancouver, North Portland, NW Portland and back to Raleigh Hills.
Time: Be ready to ride at 8:00AM sharp. We honor those who arrange their schedule to be on time.
RIDE LEADER CONTACT INFO: Jan Westfall[masked] [masked] Please call or email with any questions.
Pace: ~15 mph on the flats.
Distance: 70 miles
Hills: Yep, too many for me! But, the faster members of the group always wait patiently at the top for the slower climbers.
Attitude: Keep it moving. Short breaks as needed through out the ride. We move together as a supportive and encouraging group.
Traffic: Expect normal traffic.
Weather Cancellation Policy: We don't expect a surprise but brutal cold, soupy fog or sideways rain will cancel.

All riders must have their rides in good working order and must bring a flat kit & spare tube on all rides. If there is an issue with proper working or lack of equipment you may be asked to sit the ride out. Please ask for help if you are ill equipped prior to the ride. We will try to help!
All riders must be able to change a flat should they have one or have a way to get picked up (AAA, a friend…). There is often but not always someone on the ride who knows how to help you change your tire so plan accordingly.
