Description:

NOTE THE START:  Safeway  63rd St and Andresen and the TIME: 8am. 
This ride is longer and hillier than the other Thursday rides I've led.  We ride the whoop-de-doos on the Padden path and then some hills toward Battle Ground.  We ride one mile on the wide shoulder of 72nd Ave and head south on the 503 path.  Ride through the infamous hole-in-the-fence.  Stop at Brush Prairie Market about mile 14.  Back to coffee at Brewed Awakenings or grab a snack at Safeway or Subway, also in the parking lot.

Registration:

Registration is not required. You don't have to be a member to try us out but we'd ask that you join if you're riding with us consistently.

 

Expectations:

Please arrive 15 minutes before the start of the ride to sign up and be a part of the announcements and safety briefing.

Riders are expected to have read the club's Safe Riding Policy and  be familiar with club Ride Style Definitions. Please direct questions or concerns to the ride leader or our club Road Captain.

Helmets are required. Lights (front and rear), Road IDs, cell phones, tool kit, mirrors, and pump are recommended. Check your bike and gear before you come to make sure it's in good working order.  Seriously.

Ride leader will bring maps/cues to the ride.  You can see our route online at the Ride With GPS link above. Riders should be able to maintain the stated pace, but this is a "No rider left behind group." Please communicate with your leader if you decide to go off route.

Remember - we want to be awesome representatives of the cycling community in Clark County and spread a love and respect for our great sport by obeying all traffic laws and riding in a safe and courteous manner.  Ride safely and have fun!
