July Joy

9:00am Start



Remember those cold days six months ago when we wished it would warm up? Well it warmed up and now we wish for cooler days. They will return.Too soon.

Have you been considering moving up a speed group? The fairly flat route and multiple opportunities to regroup this week make it a good time to try the next fastest group. If you do decide to move up please be sure to tell the ride leader you join that you are new to the speed.

This week's route is July Joy (45.1 miles, 1067 ft). The route follows our usual Evergreen, Hornecker, Wren route west to Cornelius Schefflin, Verboort and Porter to Forest Grove. We'll cross Forest Grove on a new route, then north on Thatcher/Kansas City and continue to the descent on Stafford. After crossing OR-6 we ride west to Cedar Canyon and ride the rollers into Banks, cross through Banks and take Wilkesboro to Roy Rd. We make or way from Roy passed the glider port and North Plains to West Union. South on Jackson School to the traffic circle and and extended roll down Meek to Starr/41st. Starr is a good opportunity to stretch our legs before a neutral finish on Evergreen.

Weather is predicted to be sunny skies with temps in the range low 70s to low 80s. Bring your sunscreen and water.

Route Caution Areas:
- Mile 12.6: Cross OR 47
- Mile 22,4: Cross OR 6
- Mile 28.3: Cross OR 47
