BIKE CAMP COOKOUT Link
Rivelo, 401 SE Caruthers St Take Trimet (It's across from the rail museum, and pratically next to the MAX station)
4:30pm - 7:00pm, Meet at 4:30, depart at 5.
One of the best parts of bike camping and touring is making meals. Here's a chance to do that without actually going camping! Ride 5 miles to a mystery park destination (grocery stop en route) where we'll make dinner. Nerd out over camping stove setups and impress everyone with the feast you'll craft! Please note: camping stove required, not a grill/hibachi. And no dehydrated/"instant" meals that you bought at REI. Get creative!

MONDAY MEANDER (ROC) Link
Col. Summers Park, SE 20th and Belmont Take Trimet (near stone house)
6:45pm, ride at 7:15.
we will have a leisurely ride and end somewhere by water, to chill a while in the peace of night.
as well, I try to have some kind of stop before dark, though that is getting challenging - the inevitable supply stop may follow that.

this week we may end the furthest afield so far, though still under 11mi out - something other than south on river...

alternately, as 'RoC 10', perhaps we will revisit the Pedalpalooza ride - in any case, that will be done on one of the next few.

fwiw, the main significance of RoC is I do not finalize plan til day-of, that is all - rides are low-key.

much thanks to Nora for leading a great ride last week - was a lot of fun.

anyone who wants to lead any sort of future Monday eve ride - do let me know.

Col. Summers Park, SE 20th and Belmont Take Trimet (near stone house.)
6:45pm, ride at 7:15.
alright, no point potting off the post this time - ride will go on. a little adventure for monday night.

certainly the last was nice, if not exactly according to plan... we will only go 15mi out again if monday riders want to - does open up options though...

I have some ideas of varying quality, and hopefully can manage to put together a decent & more planful plan of some sort. if anyone else is keen to lead this week, try to let me know before the weekend and that will be fine too.

sticking with same time one more week, like to roll at 7 after that, to still have some chance to catch any light.
