Yes, just a reminder that yes, the Slough Country Ramble is still on! I would have only considered cancelling if there was snow/ice, or the forecast called for pouring rain all day. Tomorrow’s forecast calls for showers, so be prepared for some wet.
We meet tomorrow, Saturday February 16 at 11 AM at Cafe Eleven, 435 NE Rosa Parks Way, Portland, OR 97211. We’ll be here until 11:30 AM, so you’ll have some time to grab a coffee and breakfast before we take off. From there, we’ll head down to the Slough for the next couple hours. (Bring a snack!)
The ride is about 15 to 20 miles total. Bring a bike that can handle a little rough stuff. Ride not a loop, but will end near transit, food, and beverages.
Spring is around the corner, so now is a good time to think about upcoming bike tours!
Are you in Portland and want to take a couple hour practical class on Touring? Well, you are in luck!
I'll be having my Bike Touring Workshop on Saturday March 2, 2019, from 10:30 AM to 1 PM. Like the last one, it will be held at Golden Pliers Cyclery, the newish bike shop and cafe at 1451 N Skidmore St (right near the Prescott Station on the Yellow Line MAX!) They have a cafe with coffee, beer, and food so you can come hungry if need be!
The description: Are you itching to hit the open road and explore nature in a way you haven’t yet? Are you a regular bicycle rider but have never taken a bicycle tour? Then join us to learn more about Self-Supported Bicycle Touring and Camping. We’ll be discussing equipment, planning, and cost as well as day-to-day life on the road.
No camping/touring experience required, but this workshop is designed for folks who regularly ride a bike. We will not be extensively discussing bicycle maintenance or mechanics, but may mention a few useful tips for touring.
This workshop will cost $15 and is limited to six participants.
