Why do you join BOB? Select 1 or more: Train for an event , which event? Make friends. Start exercising. New riding routes. Other (please specify)

Longer rides with a group. Make friends who are active and into fitness. Have fun! Push the envelope.

How often do you ride? How long do you ride? At what speed do you ride?

2 to 3 times a week. At least 50 miles a week. I can hold 15 mph on the flats, kicked it to 23 when a car was a bit close last week :)

What has been the longest ride you have been on recently?

37 miles.

Which type of rides will you prefer? Short (easy 10-20 mile) casual? Intermediate (12 mph or so, 35 mile plus)? Challenging (40 mile plus with hills, 16 mph)? A mix or other (please specify)

right now 20 . I need to build up. I could do a longer ride on the weekend. Intermediate is great.

What areas would you like ride ?

Portland - Vancouver I have been down to Salem to ride with a friend also. Ankeny Wildlife Preserve is a nice place to ride.


I started riding in Honolulu in the late 80's. I moved to the Portland area in 92 and started riding again around 2008. Again learning that you have to un clip when stopping :). I have done a maximum distance ride of 48 miles, last year.
