The bottom line is that Portland Velo offers the best club cycling experience in the entire Portland metro area, bar none. Everyone has someone to ride with; no one gets dropped. And, we all walk away smiling.
THIS WEEK'S SATURDAY RIDE
Air Show Special
9 AM Start Time
The route this week is Air Show Special (48.3 miles, 1,206 feet of elevation gain). It is a big counter clockwise loop around Hillsboro avoiding the Air Show traffic as much as possible. The route starts north on Brookwood/ Helvitia to West Union, west through Roy to Kansas City, south through Forest Grove to Stringtown, Back through Forest Grove to Geiger. Lafollett, Golf Course, Tongue, Simpson, Burkhalter to Rood Bridge. North on Rood Bridge and the Century corridor back to Evergreen Park. Watch out for low flying planes that sneak up on you on Simpson.
Please be sure to download the appropriate GPS file to your computer (tcx or gpx). And print the map/cue sheet or pick one up at the start. Let's try to avoid the collapse into one large group because only 1-2 people have the route.
The weather is predicted to be clear skies with temps in the mid 50s into the 60s. Great cycling weather.
A shorter route is also available, STOL (40.8 miles, 899 ft). STOL goes straight south from Roy through Verboort and rejoins the main route in Forest Grove. Consider STOL if you are saving your legs for the Harvest Century on Sunday.
