MONDAY HUSTLE (MNR#7) Link
Salmon Street Fountain, SW Salmon St and Naito Pkwy Take Trimet
7:00pm
I'll be guest leading the ride this week, and it will be a bit more chill than the last few (no summiting the largest peak in the metro or riding 35 miles out of town). That said, it's still a Monday Ride, so expect a spirited pace, around 10 miles, and around 1k ft in elevation gain.

The ride isn't a loop, but I live near the start and we can all ride back into the city together.

The first stop won't be near supplies, so bring what you need for it to the start point. The second stop is a supply stop, then It's on to our final destination.

We meet at the fountain around 7, wheels down at 7:30.

Lets ride together celebrating life, bikes and community. <3

Lights and water are strongly recommended for this excursion.

SATURDAY CASUAL FAMILY RIDE Link
Milwaukie City Hall, 10722 Southeast Main Street Milwaukie, OR 97222 Take Trimet
8:30am
This is a special cargo bike and kid friendly ride. (Please note the earlier start time.)

We'll ride from Milwaukie City Hall to Bob's Red Mill for breakfast. Afterwards, families can head home from from Bob's or ride in a (likely smaller) group back to City Hall.

Our route: we'll head up, and cross 224 on SE Monroe. We'll ride through the low traffic service area behind the Milwaukie Marketplace, cross 37th and onto International Way.

*I could use some extra help from individual adult riders who can cork intersections, sweep, and add some additional buffer and eyes for the group. If you're able to help, please comment below.*

Saturday Casual Rides are Milwaukie centered rides designed to build and support the Milwaukie area cycling

FIRST (LAST?) FIRST FRIDAY BIKE RIDE Link
Top of Mt Tabor, Top of Mt Tabor Take Trimet
7:30pm
I'm leaving Portland forever (for a while? who the fuck knows anything) and I want to lead a bike ride for my bike friends and also for whoever shows up. If you're into bikes, we could probably be friends (maybe not) and you should come to this ride. I dunno if there's been a First Friday ride before, so as far as I'm concerned, this is the first First Friday ride, but it also might be the last because I won't be around to lead another. Meet at the top of Mt Tabor at 7:30pm. Ride by 8:00. Expect a mild challenge and a moderate pace. Zero gas station parking lots and no bonfires. Only bike ridin
