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)

there's always events to train for -this year it's Mt. Adams Climb for Clean Air, next year it might be a long-distance triathlon or BikeOregon. Now I just want to start riding again.

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

Haven't ridden in a long time, could probably start back up with a 2hr or 20some mile ride. Flat service comfortable speed I'm guessing 16mph, I'd prefer to work to keep up than have to slow down. Interested in increasing my speed/fitness more than going for a leisurely ride. Ok leisurely rides are sometimes good too.

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

haven't been on a ride recently. Longest ride ever was 2010 Portland Century

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)

a mix. intermediate to start, love, love, love a challenge -getting goose bumps here just thinking about it. Don't have lots of experience, so may be comparitively slower than other challenge junkies. Repeating myself here -like it when have to work to keep up.

What areas would you like ride ?

I live in Tigard near Scholls Ferry, but transport my bike outside surrounding Portland area


Haven't ridden my bike since 2011 injury looking for a push -or a pull to get back on
