Turtle Ride: North Portland Trails

If you are new to cycling this is the ride for you! We're going to go at a fairly slow pace through North Portland. The ride is about 19 miles long and fairly flat.

Route Link: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/2271654

Who will like this ride: SLOW (<10mph) riders who have not done much riding this past winter. Also, beginner riders since much of this route is on multi-use paths. A social, "enjoy the scenery" pace.

Meet and Greet: 10:00 Sunday morning at Kenton City Park at the intersection of N. Brandon Ave. and N. Kilpatrick.

Wheels Spinning Promptly @ 10:15 - Please do NOT show up at the last minute and make everyone else wait!

Ride Leader: Liz[masked] [masked]

TRAFFIC: This ride is on roads with bike lanes, roads without bike lanes, and bike paths.

RIDE TYPE: Fun and Social, a comfortable pace so we can visit with the others and enjoy the scenery. Wait at all hilltops and all turns. This is not a training ride or a race. No one will be dropped.

BRING: Water and enough snacks for about 2 hours (probably less). Spare tube (the RIGHT SIZE please) and a pump that fits your tube.

WEATHER: Has been all over the place lately. I will cancel if it's brutally cold, or sideways rain, but will ride in intermittent showers and at least 40 degrees. I will post a notice by 7:45 AM that morning if the weather is too bad to ride.

POST RIDE GET TOGETHER? Whatever the group decides.

REQUIRED: Helmets are Mandatory - this is a requirement, not a request.

Obey all traffic laws. Remember, you are representing the bike community, so represent us well.

Please have your bike in good working order. If your bike is not in adequate working order we may ask you to sit out the ride.

      It's Saturday. I may host one on Sunday too in Vancouver, but I haven't decided yet.

    I haven't been out on my bike much recently, but this is right in my neighborhood, so I'd love to join. Thank you for hosting!
