Tuesday and Thursday Rides

T T Group 1080x392

If you have the chance to get out and ride during the week, here’s a great option: PV’s mid-week eastside rides.

What these rides are:

Small group rides with no separate speed groups. Riders are expected to be capable of maintaining an average speed of 18 mph while riding with a group on flat terrain. These rides are cooperative and we make sure no one’s left behind.

Ride length:

Usually 40 - 50 miles, sometimes longer in the summer and shorter when the weather turns cold and rainy.

When these rides occur:

Most Thursdays, and if enough folks volunteer to lead rides, we hope to expand them to Tuesday as well. Generally, rides start at 9:30 am when the weather is warm, and at 10 am during the colder months.

Start locations:

Rides will usually start at 1 of these 3 locations: Wilshire Park at the intersection of NE Skidmore and NE 35th Ave. in Northeast Portland; Sellwood Riverfront Park at the intersection of the Springwater Trail and SE Spokane St in Portland; or Glenn Otto Park in Troutdale.

How you can find out about each week’s ride:

Ride leaders will email an announcement at the beginning of each week containing the starting time and location of that week’s ride, as well as a link to a route map. If you have questions, or you’d like to be included on the email announcement list, you can let us know here: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. If you have previously received these email announcements, there is no need to re-submit your contact information.

What you need to do if you join us on a ride - please:

  • Load a copy of the route map on your gps device. It is your responsibility to know the route.
  • Read the Club’s rules for riding during the Covid-19 Pandemic, which you can find here: Riding with PV During the Pandemic
  • Read the Club’s liability waiver, and understand that your participation in a ride constitutes acceptance of the waiver. The waiver is found here.

We are always looking for ride leaders. For these rides to be a regular weekly occurrence, and perhaps expand to Tuesdays as well as Thursdays, we need ride leaders. If you’d like to volunteer to lead a ride, please drop us a line at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
