pv icon sat rideTHIS WEEK'S SATURDAY RIDE

Tim's Dairy Creek Ramble v2

8:00am Start

HEAT ALERT:  Due to forecast high temps during the ride we've elected to roll out at 8:00am.

 

The route this week is TIM’S DAIRY CREEK RAMBLE v2 (52.9 miles, 1,078 feet of elevation gain). Ten years ago this month, when Portland Velo was only 1-year young, PV member Tim O’Donnell was struck by a car and killed.  We ride today a variation on Tim’s favorite route in memorial to Tim and all cyclists who have been struck down while cycling our roads.  Be safe, watch out and take care of one another. The route consists of a big flat loop and a long gentle climb up-and-back on Dairy Creek Rd.  The loop heads west via Evergreen - Hornecker - Verboot, heads north on Thatcher and KC and then east via Greenville, Harrington and Dershaw across OR 26. Then it’s up and back on a long gentle climb via Dairy Creek Rd.  Lastly it’s home via N Plains and Jackson School - Meek - Sewell - Evergreen.

For those wanting less miles there is a short option at 41.6 miles and 865 feet of climbing.  The short route follows the full route for the first 9.4 miles, and then continues north on Cornelius Schefflin to Kerkman. We then ride Dersham over OR-26, and take Mountaindale to Dairy Creek - where you’re back on course following the full route home. You can link to the short route on RwGPS by clicking here.

Weather is predicted to be clear with temperatures in the high 70s to low 90s.  It will be HOT in the latter portions of the ride - bring adequate hydration, sun screen, etc.

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.
