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.

Pine Mountain Sports invites you to join us at COTA Movie Night at McMenamins, 700 NW Bond St, Bend, OR 97701 on Thursday, March 24th.
Join the crew of The Hub Cyclery and Pine Mountain Sports as we get stoked for Paris-Roubaix with a special screening of A Sunday In Hell.
A Sunday In Hell covers the 1976 edition of the one-day Paris-Roubaix bicycle race, which is usually the most dramatic of the Spring Classics on the professional cycling calendar.
A good portion of Paris-Roubaix takes place over narrow, bumpily-cobbled roads that become choked with dust on dry days and treacherously slick and muddy on rainy days… hence the nickname “The Hell of the North” that gives the film its title.
This classic film shows us the preparations of the stars – Eddie Merckx, Francesco Moser, Roger De Vlaeminck – before portraying the race itself with great cinematography and music that reminds us that this film was definitely made in 1976! It lingers on personal details like Merckx’s perfectionist obsession with his saddle height, the dedication of the fans and the crazy-hard work required by the race support crews. In addition to the awesome race coverage, we love this film because of the vintage bikes, clothing and excellent haircuts.
Run time: 111 minutes.
