Advanced Beginner Road Ride: Deschutes Market-Tumalo Loop (Bend)
July 7, 2016 at 9:30 am
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

This ride is for advanced beginner or better riders. The rider should be comfortable with moderate distances with increased elevation gain and loss. ALL of our rides are ‘no-drop’ rides and the Bellas are committed to helping one another improve our riding skills. In consideration of other riders, however, we do ask that you choose an ability level that is close to your skills. If you are building a particular skill, please let the ride leader know.
If you wish to do this ride, but will not be with the group the whole time, please print off a map for your ride, and let the ride leader know of your plans.
For more information: Contact Cariol Terzi with questions at (541) 389-6059 or email@example.com.
