PV Long Rides

 
We’ve had a great season riding lots of extra miles with lots of extra smiles.  Alas, all good things must come to an end.  PV Long Ride 2018 will continue through September 30, two more weeks, weather dependent. If you are not already on the PV Long Ride list and would like to join the last couple weeks, please let Dan know at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

 PV Long Rides Guidelines:

  • Long route is open to all members who can maintain an 18-20 pace
  • A RwGPS link will be provided to those who register in advance.  Riders are responsible for their own queue sheets and/or Garmin files using the link provided.
  • Recommended size is 12 riders, but no more than 15
  • Riders who join on Saturday are on a first come, first join basis
  • Riders must be capable of riding a metric century
  • Riders must acknowledge there may not be a group to drop back to.
  • In case of flats or mechanicals, the group will stay together.
  • Should the hourly forecast temperature be above 90 by 1 PM, PV Long Ride will revert to the regular route.
  • We know you don’t like fenders and wetness so PV Long will only occur if roads are dry and forecast is for fair sky’s.

Fall Follies 

Fall presents it's on set of challenges. The big question every week becomes what to wear? Is that patch of blue sky going to spread and the sun come out or will it disappear into rain clouds? Fenders or not? How slick are the roads? Has the rain been enough to flush the oils off the road or just enough to bring it to the surface and make the road super slick?

In December the start time will shift to 10 am due to the shortening days.

Rides will also get shorter and there will be less climbing because of the danger of fast descents on wet roads.

The safety issues shift from heat and smoke to cold, pouring rain, possibly snow and ice, and wind.  The Operations team will evaluate weather predictions for Saturday and make a decision whether or not to cancel the ride Friday afternoon. If we decide to cancel email will be sent. If we decide to proceed with the ride there will not be any additional email. Occasionally we may be forced to make a decision on Saturday morning.

While we can make decisions whether the official ride is to be held or cancelled many individuals opt to ride as a non-Portland Velo ride. That decision is up to the individuals. Your health is our primary concern.

 

 

 

Get Social

The bottom line is that Portland Velo offers the best club cycling experience in the entire Portland metro area, bar none. Everyone has someone to ride with; no one gets dropped. And, we all walk away smiling.

 

Start connecting with friends

At our core, we’re a community of cyclists who love to ride our bikes. It doesn’t matter if you ride 14 or 24mph, whether you enjoy 35 mile or 75 mile rides. We don’t care if your bike cost $900 or $9,000, if you’ve been riding one year or twenty. What matters to us is your passion for cycling, that you care about safety and you enjoy riding with a great group of like-minded individuals.

Our club motto - “It’s All About the Ride!” - speaks volumes about who we are and what we’re about.
