Group Rides almost Every Sunday, sampling various trails near PDX.
In light of the recent River View drama, we've decided to keep the ride local this week. Given the current open "trails", what does that mean exactly now? What is legal to ride in Forest Park, and what is projected to be rideable? Ryan will lead a tough route leaving from NW Portland that will take in much of what is legal currently as well as explore some of the secret trails of the Tualatin Mountains Metro properties.
Ride will depart from Fat Tire Farm at 9AM. Load up on goodies at Clearing Cafe just down the block beforehand. They have great coffee, breakfast items, and friendly faces. After the ride, we can have a pint or snack at the Skyline Tavern if anyone is left. A mountain bike will be most comfortable, but this ride is also possible to do on a cross bike. The ride is open to all abilities, and given that there is no carpool to sort out you are welcome to ride as much of it as you like before turning around. The total ride length will be 40ish miles. 90ish% dirt.
Route Summary: Holman, FL1, Leif, Saltzman, FL5, Leif, FL10, BPA, Ennis Creek, McCarthy Creek
