Ride Previewpv icon sat rideTHIS WEEK'S SATURDAY RIDE

Two Climbs

39.7 miles - 1,940 feet

9:00am Start

 

The route this week is Two Climbs (39.7 miles, 1,940 feet of elevation gain).  It’s a new climbing route Ron developed, stringing together climbs on Riedweg-Iowa Hill-Unger and Holly Hill.  We start with 11 miles of flat to warm up and end with 14 at the end to cool off.  The route heads south on Century Drive (was 229th/231st) before picking up Rood Bridge and Burkhalter.  Then we do a stair-step climb of Riedweg & Dober before connecting with Iowa Hill.  Normally at this point we head right on Iowa Hill for a nice descent.  For this route we head left and continue the stair-steps up Unger - climbing it from the less severe side.  It still has some 10-12% pitches - so protect those matches and stay on the right side of the road as sight lines over the top are limited.  You summit to a gorgeous view of the valley.  Those not wanting to engage in this level of climbing can easily circumvent it by staying on Riedweg - rather than turning onto Dober - and simply follow Riedweg to join Unger after the climbs - and back on route.

The route then heads south on OR-219 to Bald Peak Rd and Campbell to climb Holly Hill - clockwise.  After climbing Holly Hill we head back over Campbell and out Farmington to River Rd.  Then it’s Davis, Century Drive and home.  The forecast for this Saturday looks to be partly cloudy to clear with ride temperatures in the low-60’s to low-70’s.  A gorgeous day to be up in the Iowa Hills

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.
