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.
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.
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:
