Hills First, Flats Last - 37 Miles Non-Stop

  • Jan 26, 2014 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

This ride is for the "can't talk too busy pedaling" types who do not like to take long breaks and can ride 15 mph on the flats.

The route is a repeat of last Sunday with the same crew.  We either enjoyed it so much we need to ride it again or we liked the punishment the hills dished out.  Either way, we are on our way up again this week.

Route: The Easier Washington County Hills

Pace: 15+ mph on the flats

Start Time: We leave at 10:00 AM sharp so please plan accordingly.  We honor those who arrange their schedule to be on time.

Distance: ~37 miles

Hills: Yes.  Patient regroups at the top of all climbs.  Elevation gain:  1697 ft.

Attitude: We will be moving along with no long breaks.  We will regroup at the top of all hill climbs.

Traffic: Be comfortable riding around and in traffic. 

Group Ride, but please be comfortable with continuous riding with no long breaks. 

Ride Leader: Jan Westfall[masked]  [masked]  Please call or email with any questions.

Weather Cancellation Policy: We ride in rain showers but brutal cold, soupy fog or sideways rain will cancel.

Helmets must be worn at all times while riding. This is a requirement and not a request.

Always bring plenty of water, snacks for energy, a flat repair kit, including a spare tube.  A tool kit and small pump is good, but if you don’t have one there is usually someone on a group ride who does.  Carry a credit card and a little cash to buy refreshments.

Mandatory for all riders.

Obey traffic laws and remember you’re a representative of the greater cycling community and should conduct yourself that way on the road.  Please represent us well.

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.

Note: Your RSVP signifies that you agree to the following. Organizers, event hosts and other participants will not be held responsible for any individual at any event. Each rider rides at their own risk and is solely responsible for any damage to their equipment or themselves.

Final Note: RSVP’s cannot include a +1 or Guest. If you choose to bring a friend or family member, they themselves must sign up as a member of NumBumz.

    Super group to ride with. I love the even pace of Burt, Doug, and Mike. They led a perfect pace line back on Evergreen. Thank you Burt for helping at the front and to Doug for helping pull us along. This group works so well together!

    Another 5-star Jan-led gem supplemented by SUN for the entire ride. This is a good loop for both getting some training effect (on the trio of climbs) and steady state cruising on the flats and rollers. Jan does an exemplary job of managing the ride, ample regroups, but little hanging around, so we are mainly moving. Nice ride. Thanks!
