Lunch in Vernonia -Portland Bicycling Club

Lunch in Vernonia

This ride has been canceled!



Ride the Banks-Vernonia Trail and have lunch at any of several restaurants in beautiful downtown Vernonia or just pack a lunch. Main stop in Vernonia will be The Black Iron Grill at 831 Bridge Street.

Pace is listed as “intermediate” (we will be 12 - 15 mph on the flats) due to long climbs on the ride out and again on the way back. Riders can definitely make up some time on the long descent on the way back. Exercise great care on the descent going IN to Vernonia. There are some nasty corners and a few driveways. In addition, the pavement has deteriorated in some places, and all but one of the bridge approaches are in bad shape. That one has been repaired because of your club's generous contribution to Friends of Stub Stewart. Many potholes that used to be there are long gone, thanks to the hard work of many club volunteers. (We'll be working on the trail again this year too.)

Regroup at Stub Stewart Park and the Black Iron Grill on the first leg. At Stub Stewart Park on the way back.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes early to allow for sign-up/check-in. Cue sheets will be available if requested in advance, though they are hardly necessary, because this is an out-and-back ride and there is only one trail!. Contact Dave by phone or e-mail. On line signup is available until 7:30 AM the day of the ride.
