PORTLAND URBAN GRAVEL GRINDER Link
Pips Doughnuts, 4759 NE Fremont St Take Trimet (Or nearest parking lot)
CANCELED moved to Fall
Portland is notorious for having a large number of unpaved roads. Let's explore them!

Meet: Carb-load at 8:00a at Pips Doughnuts on NE Fremont
Starts: Roll out at 8:30a and no later.

Route Options:
Short - Cully, Gateway, Outer SE, Brentwood Darlington
Long - Add in SW Neighborhoods
Extreme - Ride up Forest Park road, and then back to town via St. Johns.

Pace: The ride is long, so we'll go as fast as gravel and legal traffic maneuvers allows (probably 15mph).

Helmets: Not required, but a good idea given we'll be on really bad roads.

Other Notes: GPX track made available pre-ride. This is a drop-ride. Be respectful of neighborhoods we ride through.

NO MORE 4-LANE ROADS! A BIKELOUDPDX PROTEST RIDE Link
Oregon Park, NE Hoyt St and 29th Ave Take Trimet
CANCELED Moved to June 17
BikeLoudPDX-sponsored ride in protest of pavement allocation. We demand more space for people, less space for machines! Four-lane roads create too many distractions for drivers and impede visibility. Crossing four-lane roads as a pedestrian or cyclist, even legally, is hazardous. The extra lanes should be used for bike lanes, bus-only lanes, parklets, wider sidewalks, anything but vehicle lanes. No more four-lane roads!

This ride is not for children and first-time cyclists; we will ride safely, but will be taking the lane on major arterial streets during rush hour.

Expect 20-30 mi of mixed terrain and a few hills, but nothing too serious and nothing too fast. We meet for breakfast at the beginning and will stop a bit for food and libations. Ends probably in Montavilla. Wear your TSBC gear!
