pv icon sat rideTHIS WEEK'S SATURDAY RIDE

 

stuobadnuor tuoba dnour

 

8/19/17  


9:00am Roll-Out 

 

After cancelling the August 5th Saturday ride because of smoke we have rescheduled the New Rider Ride for THIS SATURDAY. See New Rider Ride below.

Last month we did a new route named round about roundabouts. This week we're doing it in reverse: stuobadnuor tuoba dnuor (45. miles, 1062 ft). There are still five round abouts on about as flat a course as we can find. We start out going south on the Century corridor and River Rd. West on Farmington, Burkhalter, Simpson to the golf course, north on Golf Course, 10th Cornelius Shefflin to the first of three roundabouts in a row passing through Verboort. Thatcher and Kansas City to Kansas City. East on Greenville, Harrington, Dersham, Mountaindale, West Union to Jackson School. South to our last roundabout at Meek and east to Starr/41st. A good place for a final push down to Evergreen and a neutral finish back to Evergreen Park.
The Beaverton, Banks and Beyond is also taking place on Saturday and uses some of the same roads. They will be moving in the opposite direction and we should be finished hours before the century riders. There are shorter versions of their ride that may be on the roads at the same time.

Weather is predicted to be sunny skies with temps in the range low 60s to low 70s. Great cycling weather. Bring your sunscreen and water.

Route Caution Areas:
- Mile 12.3: Cross OR 219
- Mile 30.1: Cross OR 47

New Rider Ride

 

After cancelling the August 5th Saturday ride because of smoke we have rescheduled the New Rider Ride for THIS SATURDAY. If you have a spouse or friend interested in trying Portland Velo, is able to ride 40 miles in 3.5 hours but is nervous about being the ‘only new rider’ this is the week to bring them out! Ride Leaders BobCat will welcome them to Portland Velo and take them for their first PV ride.
Optional – but strongly encouraged, meet up at Longbottom’s following the ride!

The ride will be 34.7 miles in length and only gain 615 ft on very gentle terrain. We’ll focus on group riding skills, working together and enjoying the ride.

 

[Group speed can be adjusted up, depending on rider ability]

Our club motto - “It’s All About the Ride!” - speaks volumes about who we are and what we’re about.
