pv icon sat rideTHIS WEEK'S SATURDAY RIDE

  

Pre Turkey Day 

9 AM Start Time

Come out and make room for more turkey leading up to Thanksgiving on Thursday.

The weather for Friday and Saturday is predicted to be overcast but rain free. We will not climb as much as last week but we will do some rollers on Cedar Canyon, Clapshaw and Hillside. The route this week is Rainy Day 3 (43.3 miles, 1179 ft).

We start by going west past North Plains, past Dairy Creek to cross US-26 at Frogger Junction. Continue to OR-47 and Banks. Then west on Cedar Canyon to cross OR-6, east to Stafford and the short climb to Strohmeyer and Kansas City. We will continue the roller experience by climbing Clapshaw and returning to Thatcher on Hillside. Then it is east through Verboort to Cornellius-Schefflin, Wren, Glencoe and Evergreen. We will have a neutral finish on Evergreen to reduce the risk of crashes.

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 cloudy. No active rain but there may be residual moisture on some roads.

There is also a shorter route. Rainy Day 3 sht (34.5 miles, 706 ft). The short route passes through Roy, skips both Cedar Canyon and Clapshaw, and joins the main route on Kemper for the remainder of the route.

At our core, we’re a community of cyclists who love to ride our bikes. It doesn’t matter if you ride 14 or 24mph, whether you enjoy 35 mile or 75 mile rides. We don’t care if your bike cost $900 or $9,000, if you’ve been riding one year or twenty. What matters to us is your passion for cycling, that you care about safety and you enjoy riding with a great group of like-minded individuals.

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