12 Mile Rookie Ride -Portland Bicycling Club

12 Mile Rookie Ride


Got a new bike? New to group riding? Just dusting off the bike and the skills after a few years? This is the ride for you!

Ride starts at the Sellwood Riverfront Park parking lot off Oaks Park Drive near the east end of the Sellwood Bridge. We will travel north on the Springwater Trail and connect to the Eastbank Esplanade near OMSI, then north to the Steel Bridge. Return via Waterfront Park Bike path or new bike path on Naito Parkway. Coffee at Starbucks or Flying Elephant. Continue south on bike path or cross Tilikum Crossing to return. Only hills are the Tilikum Crossing or the approach to the Sellwood Bridge. On occasion we may reverse the route.

Sign up on line (strongly preferred!) or in person at the start. On line sign-ups close at 3:00 PM day of ride.

This is a no-drop ride. Pace of the group is the speed of the slowest rider. We will stop as needed for mechanical issues or restroom breaks.
