Flying Blind In Tandem (Portland)
June 12, 2016 from 10:30 am - 1:30 pm
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.

Sighted and blind bike riders coming together to go on a two-seated adventure!
Fairly mellow tandem ride along the i-205 bike path to Rocky Butte. At the top we’ll eat lunch, mix up tandem teams as we circle the summit, and return to the starting point if desired. Please let us know at least 3 days in advance if you need a captain, a stoker, and/or a tandem. Well confirm with you the day before.
If you are stoker, a captain, and/or you have a tandem, we want you!
Arrive at 10:30 for bagels and shmears. Tandem training 10:45-11:15, then start riding at 11:30.
The mystique of the tandem – two people on one bike, sharing one mission – is a contradiction to the do-it-yourself and island-unto-oneself mentality. Join us!
