June 22, 2017 at 10:00 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.

New Two-Speed Westside Ride: Leaves at 10:00 AM from Jessie Mays Park in North Plains (take exit 57 from Hwy 26—go north on Glencoe Rd 0.5 mi—left on Hillcrest St—park is on right.) The destination is Maggie’s Buns in Forest Grove for a coffee/snack break. Distance 38 miles. Much of this ride is beautiful farm country on the Tualatin Valley Scenic Bikeway. Traffic is very low. Ride pace details: Re-group ride with two speeds: · Scenic, 15-16 mph · Brisk, 17-19 mph Choose either speed group. Scenic riders: This year we want to build a core group at the Scenic level. In the interim, if you can keep a pace of at least 15 mph and are the only one in the Scenic group, someone from the Brisk group will happily ride with you. We will regroup every 5 miles for anyone who can ride the minimum speed for their group (15 Scenic and 17 Brisk). If you ride slower than 15 you are very welcome to attend but please print a cue sheet if you do not know the route. Cancellations: If the ride needs to be cancelled for any reason I will post a message at http://www.jazzstandards.com/CurrentRideInfo.htm before 6PM the previous evening. Ride Leader Jeremy Wilson, 503-432-0050.
