Event Type


The forecast is for clear skies with temperatures in the 70°Fs.

Main Route: Big Pumpkin (35.9 miles, 2258 ft). MAIN ROUTE Map/Cue

There is not a separate short route because of the out and back on Pumpkin Ridge. The length of the route can be cut as short as 23 miles by not turning up Pumpkin ridge at all and continuing straight on Shadybrook Rd at mile 14.6.

Note that not all speed groups may have ride leaders for all routes.

Please be sure to download the appropriate GPS file to your computer. That rider off the front of the group may not know where he’s going. Follow the link to the RwGPS site and download the GPS file appropriate for your computer from there. And print the map/cue sheet. Let’s try to avoid the collapse into one large group because only 1-2 people have the route. Protect yourself. See the cue sheet for caution areas.

Route names are often reused with minor changes to the route. Do not assume an old map or GPS file reflects the current route.

Portland Velo Saturday rides start from Evergreen Park. See the Parking Map.

Also note you can download the free RwGPS app to your smart phone, access the route through it and follow the route on your cell phone. See details under “RwGPS app usage”.

The main route in red. The route can be shortened by making a U turn anywhere on Pumpkin Ridge. Click on the image to bring up the event routes in RwGPS.
