First Ride of the Year -Portland Bicycling Club

First Ride of the Year

Sleep in and then join us for the club’s traditional First Ride of the Year, meeting to sign in at 11:45 AM with the ride starting at 12:00 noon. You have a choice of two distances depending on how you feel post-New-Year’s-Eve partying. Both routes include a rest stop at Ancestry Brewing in Sellwood. We’ll head over the Steel Bridge from the Battleship Oregon Memorial and then go south to Milwaukie via Sellwood. The shorter route extends to Milwaukie Bay Park along SE 17th Avenue, does a U-turn and returns to Sellwood the same way. The longer option extends south to SE Roethe Road, via River Road, and returns via the Trolley Trail. Ride distance may be adjusted based on the weather. Ride is canceled in the event of ice or measurable snow. (We’re on if just flurries!) Ride Leader: Pat McManus.
