The Tuesday Hill Slayer

  • Helvetia Tavern

    10275 Northwest Helvetia Road, Hillsboro, OR (map)

    45.596536 -122.916618

  • South end of the parking lot, near the RR tracks
  • A dose of hardcore bikey rejuvenation: a varying route through bicycle heaven of 25-30+ miles, and 2500+ feet of climbing.  Hardcore is more about attitude than conditioning. Even if you're kind of a slow climber, come on out.  The route will always be hard, but we'll be nice, and if you keep at it, you'll get better.

    It's Spring, yay! Start time is moving to 5pm. As soon as possible we'll make it late enough that you office slugs can join us after you punch out.

    This week's route: Up Moreland, out Skyline, down MacNamee, up Newberry, back via Old CP and Phillips. Oy. Bring legs.


    Ride leader: Paul Johnston [masked][masked]

    Date and Time of Ride: Tuesdays at 5:00 pm

    Meeting Point: Helvetia Tavern.


    This Week's Route:

    Route Stats: 33 miles, 3596 feet of climbing

    Type of ride: This is a very strong intermediate to expert level training ride. We will regroup at hilltops and major turns. If you are concerned about your ability to keep up, feel free to give it a shot, but be a good sport and be prepared to make your own way back if the pace or difficulty are too much.
