Shute Park to Banks
SPECIAL EDITION RIDE! ONE DAY ONLY! Christof will be visiting and to accommodate his schedule the Shute Park to Banks ride will start at 11:30. Also, the ride will be extended to 47 miles. It will be the usual Cedar Canyon ride plus the Clapshaw Hill/Hillside loop. Also, it will return to Hillsboro (from BJ’s in Forest Grove) via Fern Hill Road/Golf Course Road/Burkhalter/Rood Bridge/ etc. This ride starts from Shute Park and we meet at the parking lot behind the Senior Center off SE 8th Ave. Much of this ride is beautiful farm country on the Tualatin Valley Scenic Bikeway. Traffic is very low. We will re-group every 5 miles, riding in two speed groups: Scenic at 16-17 mph, and Brisk at 18-19 mph (possibly a little slower on rainy/fender days and faster on dry days). Scenic riders and those riding slower than 16 mph: If you do not know the route, please print a cue sheet in case you are the only one riding that speed. eBikers: You are welcome to join the ride. However, please do not take the lead position as this is not a motor-paced ride. An exception is if the pack is rotating, you may lead for up to a minute before rotating to the back. Each week we will decide whether to ride the route clockwise or counter-clockwise. We will break for lunch either in Banks or Forest Grove.
