Hills After Lunch (Hillsboro; every Tuesday)
March 5, 2013 at 2:00 pm
This is the winter version of Hills After Work, and it’s the same dose of hardcore bikey rejuvenation: a varying route through bicycle heaven of 25-30+ miles, and 2,500+ feet of climbing. Hardcore is more about attitude than conditioning. Even if you’re kind of a slow climber, come on out. The route will always be hard, but we’ll be nice, and if you keep at it, you’ll get better.
I repeat: We’ll be nice! Come on out and give it a try. And if this ride seems like too much (well, it IS a lot of really hard climbing), try the Thursday Night Ride.
The Route: TBD.
Route Stats: 25-35 miles with major hills.
Pace and terrain rating: Kinda maniacal, yet friendly.
Type of ride: This is an intermediate-level training ride. We will regroup at hilltops and major turns. If you are concerned about your ability to keep up, feel free to give it a shot, but be a good sport and be prepared to make your own way back if the pace is too much.
Weather cancellation policy: Only extreme weather will cancel this ride.
Mandatory for all riders:
1. Helmets must be worn at all times while riding. This is a requirement and not a request. Obey traffic laws and remember you’re a representative of the greater cycling community and should conduct yourself that way on the road. Represent us well!
2. Have your ride in good working order and bring a flat kit and the right size spare tube on all rides. If there is an issue with proper working or lack of equipment you may be asked to sit the ride out.
3. Please ask for help if you are ill-equipped prior to the ride, and we will help if we can!
