NWTA Sunday Group Rides

Repeats every week until Mon Aug 31 2015 .
Sun, 11/02/2014 - 9:00am
 
Join us for a group ride on Sundays to practice some trail Zen, meet fellow riders and enjoy a beer afterwards. We'll be riding all the best trails within 1.5 hour drive of Portland, and carpooling from Universal Cycles at 2202 E Burnside St to leave by 8 am and be back by 6. We'll break up into faster and slower groups naturally once on the trail, so Beginners are welcome but should have prior singletrack experience and a mechanically sound bike. 
 
Anyone can volunteer to lead a ride at any trail on any open Sunday slot as long as its hasn't been done in the last 6 weeks; just send an email to volunteer@nw-trail.org.

Exploring the CZ trail from Scapoose to Vernonia (maybe)
The CZ (Crown Zellerbach) trail is an old converted rail line that runs from Scapoose all the way to Vernonia. It starts of paved for the first couple of miles but gets sketchier the further you go west.

This is an Adventure Ride, most likely involving hike-a-bike and getting lost. Its railroad grade with a few climbs; moderate to fast pace to keep the gravel doubletrack fun!

Its 24 miles one-way to Vernonia, but we will probably start turning back in groups as we hit harder obstacles.
Here is the GPS of the route: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/6386258

Carpooling from Universal Cycles at 2202 E Burnside St to leave by 8 am, or meet at the Scapoose trailhead at 9 am. Directions to Trailhead: http://rideoregonride.com/mountain-biking/cz-trail-crown-zellerbach-trail/

Nov 9th
Scappoose

Meet at Universal Cycles at 2202 E Burnside St to leave at 9 am or meet 10am at the north entrance gate (approximately 1 mile up from Hwy 30 on the right side (north) of the road). 

Ever wanted to check out the Scappoose trails?  Come on out for this moderately paced ride.  Depending upon who shows up, we can explore trails on the south side, then ride the north side trails.   Plan accordingly for the weather, but these trails typically are not overly muddy.  We'll ride for 2-3 hours.
