NWTA Sunday Group Rides

Repeats every week until Mon Aug 31 2015 .
Sun, 10/26/2014 - 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.

Oct 19
Gales Creek

 - meet at Universal at 8am to determine carpooling
 - meet at trailhead at 9:30am
 - Trailhead: Gales Creek Campground, just east of the summit of Rt 6
 - Ride will be approximately 24 miles with 4,000 of climbing, with a mix of singletrack and logging roads. We'll be going up Storey Burn trail to the gravel road, then heading down along Storey Burn Road to the intersection with Gales Creek trail, deciding whether or not to do the northern half of Gales Creek trail, and then coming back on the Gales Creek trail to the campground. Regardless, the ride will start out with a decent climb and will finish with a 30-minute descent. A significant portion of the trail is carved out of the hillside with resultant exposure, so be aware of that. There will also probably water on the trail, so fenders are probably a good idea if you have them.
