PWTC Westside Ride (North Plains; every Thursday)
August 25, 2016 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.

Portland Wheelmen Touring Club 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 flat rural roads on the Tualatin Valley Scenic Bikeway. Traffic is very low. Re-group ride with an average of 16-17 mph.
Cancellations: If the ride needs to be cancelled for any reason I will post a message on the PWTC Forum “Current Ride Info” page before 6 PM the previous evening.
Ride pace details: Some of the riders may ride faster than the above mentioned pace but we will happily regroup every 5 miles for anyone who can ride 16 mph on the flat. If you ride slower you are very welcome to attend but may want to print a cue sheet if you do not know the route.
