Tuesday 11 mile Rookie Ride
Sign in at start. This ride may be canceled due to rain. Please check this post on the morning of the ride before attending if in doubt.
The ride is for folks just getting back on their bikes and slower riders: And may include a number of riders from the Mirabella retirement home. We will travel north to the Tilikum Crossing Bridge and connect to the West bank Esplanade going either along the Waterfront Park bike path or the Naito Parkway bike path to cross the Steel Bridge. We will then travel South on the Eastbank Esplanade going by OMSI and connect to the Springwater trail. After crossing the Sellwood bridge we will return along the Westbrook esplanade to Mirabella. The only hill is the approach to the Sellwood Bridge. On occasion we may reverse the route. We will meet at the end of the ride at the Bistro (front of Mirabella at 3550 S Bond Ave) for coffee and a little conversation.
No-drop ride. No rider left behind. Stopping for mechanical issues and restrooms.
