Details:


Each January we get one magical weekend and this is it.  Come test our RACC Shorty route for 2018 with me. It’s the middle of winter.  We will ride gently as a friendly group.  20 friendly, casual miles.

Our route heads to the Burnt Bridge Creek Trail, winds through low traffic city streets to the Renaissance Trail along the Columbia River, then past the Old Apple Tree and over the land bridge back through the Fort. 

We’ve got several coffee options, one about 2 miles from the end, Savonna, by McMenamin’s which is also an option and both have outdoor seating.  Or we can head to Thatchers, Brewed Café or Paper Tiger – all within a mile or so of Pearson.  50 degrees forecast at noon and no wind.  Keep those fingers and a couple of toes crossed.   

 

NEW STARTING POINT:  Pearson Air Museum, same place we're staging RACC for 2018.  The museum is closed on Sunday so we can use their parking lot.
