Usery Pass-Bush Hwy loop. 43 mile ride with plenty of climbing.

 

We will be doing a distance of 43 miles at a 15-16 MPH average pace. There is also about 1K feet of climbing (Usery Pass) This is a moderate ride and you'll need to be prepared for a minimum of 3 hours of riding. Bring plenty of water and snacks as you will need it. We will be leaving the Library's parking lot at 9:00am and proceed northbound on Greenfield Rd then follow the route 'till we get back to the library. We'll be doing at least two comfort/hydration stops (more if needed)

Here is the prelim route, it will be clockwise this time:

This is a no-drop ride but PLEASE KNOW YOUR ABILITY. We like to be safe and keep track of everyone but it is difficult to maintain no-drop rides when a rider is not aware of his ability to maintain posted speeds.

Before the ride be sure to eat a light breakfast. Also please:

  • Wear a helmet and bring a road bike
  • Bring plenty of water and a spare tubes
  • Wear comfortable clothing and dress appropriately for the weather conditions.
  • Be prepared for approximately 3 hours of riding
  • Arrive 15 minutes early and be sure to pump up tires

Ride leader is Tony Lozano

    Thanks, Tony and everyone else. I now confess that it's been many years since I've done such a climb. A five star ride!
