Details

A beautiful spring day is made for a ride on the Springwater Trail, especially a spring day that likely will be our first 70 degree day of the year. The ride will start in North Milwaukie near the Springwater Trail, where we will ride out to the recently renovated Gresham City Park, take a short break there, then head back to Milwaukie, with a stop for lunch at Cartlandia on the way back.

Plan to be at the ride start at 10:15AM for meet & greet, pre-ride briefing and ride preparations. We will hit the trail at 10:30AM sharp.

NOTE: This ride will be an excellent opportunity for new and future ride leaders to assist with the ride. ******************************************************
