STP Training Ride #4–Burnt Bridge Trail from Wilshire Park
Please read the Covid protocols before attending the ride.
You do not need to be a PBC member. This ride is open to anyone who wants to get ready for the next edition of the famous Seattle-to-Portland bike ride, which will be held on July 15-16 this year. On-line signup is available—even to non-members—until 6:00 AM the day of the ride. Go to PBC Ride Calendar to sign up on-line. You will also be able to sign up in person at the start. On-line signup will be available until 6:00 AM on the day of the ride.
Please arrive 15 minutes early to allow for sign-up/check-in. Cue sheets will be available if requested in advance. Light rain is OK, heavy rain will shorten the ride.
The Portland Bicycling Club has used this ride for a long time. We will mostly follow the traditional route that has some hills—notably the approach to the I-205 bike path and the hill on NE 105th as we return to Portland.
I intend for this to be a group ride, but if some riders want to go faster, I would treat that part as a non-group ride. The faster riders may proceed at their own pace. The first potty stop will be at a small park at approximately mile 13, then a rest and coffee break at Larson’s Bakery.
On the STP, you will need to ride on consecutive days. I recommend that you follow up this ride with a trip to Salem and the Salem Bicycle Club’s Monster Cookie, which is May 7.
