Leaves from Clark College off Fort Vancouver Way (Red parking lot near McLaughlin and Fort Vancouver Way) in Vancouver, Wash. Travel east through Vancouver and out around Lacamas Lake. On the way back we will visit a wonderful bakery. This is a good combination of city and rural riding. There is a little climbing--less than 1,000 feet. Distance 33 miles, but there is one short steep hill at about mile 18.
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 14, then a rest and coffee break at Larson’s Bakery.
