New Member Ride #2 -Portland Bicycling Club

New Member Ride #2

You must sign up online to attend this ride. ONLY non-members should sign up here. If you are a club member, first log in before signing up for this ride.


Primarily for new members, but all members and even prospective members are welcome. At least some of the board members will be there. The club will pick up the tab for all members who have joined this year (but who couldn’t make Thursday’s ride) and for all board members who attend. Prospective members? Well, you have to actually join before you get free cookies!

This is a relaxed ride out to Hayden Island, mostly on city streets, then across the river to Vancouver, and on to Larson’s Bakery (my favorite coffee stop of all time!) It is mostly flat, but there are a couple of moderate hills. No prolonged steep climbs at all. We return via the I-205 bike path across the Columbia and back to Wilshire Park on Prescott and Going Streets. If you don’t feel like riding, you should feel free to just join us at Larson’s for coffee and pastries. Those who ride will arrive at Larson’s between 10:30 and 11:00.

We encourage you to take this opportunity to meet and socialize with new riding buddies. New members will also learn a little bit about the club’s more than 50-year history as well as how we operate today.

Remember, it is still summer, so bring your water bottles!

Please arrive AT LEAST 15 MINUTES EARLY to allow for sign-up/check-in. I’d like to move along at 12-15 mph most of the time, but I intend this to be a group ride, so the pace of the group will be the pace of the slowest rider. If faster riders know the route and want to move out ahead, they should feel free. Just don't drink all the coffee, and please leave at least a couple of cookies for me.
