    Will it be better than Dalles Mountain?

    Well you won't have to drive there

    aside from the OR Rando org, any bike shops in the area organizing longer rides regularly? shorter rides?
  • MiguelMiguel Riding Level: 2,327
    what is a longer ride
  • explohubexplohub Riding Level: 12
    i meant dayrides, say 50+ miles
  • MiguelMiguel Riding Level: 2,327
    50 miles is not a long ride. 50 miles is a 3 hour training session. 50 miles is a trip to estacada and back to get an espresso.

    do you have a real job or can you go ride in the middle of the week?

    if you are a weekend warrior then ORR/SIR are options. the thing about portland -proper- is there are only about 5(ish) ways to get out of town of varying safety:

    hwy 30
    205 trail/bridge
    marine drive/halsey
    springwater trail
    milwaukie/river road
    skyline/west union

    once you hit those, you're about 10-15 miles from the city center so that gives you ~10-15 miles of fuckaround before you're at your 50-60 mile mark.

    Hey nerds
    I'm hosting a 100k for the local Rando club


    Ride starts at a lazy 10am in forest grove (about 5 miles/8km from the max line) and is just enough work to get your blood pumping and legs stretched out.

    It's free
    Starts and ends at mcmenamins, the region's best place to buy Cajun tater tots
    And it starts after coffee places open up
    (If you live in Portland, be on max by 830)

    hi again
    im starting a "50km training ride" series this october/november. they will be in the style of a populaire/brevet with a little cue sheet and card. the rides will start flat and get progressively more difficult. if you havent been on a bike ride for a while this will be a good start.

    let me know if you are interested

    Kinda wish I was still in Portland so I could do this. 2 hours with coffee bookends sounds about great.
  • MiguelMiguel Riding Level: 2,327

    I might be in if they cancel the Cascadia Super G (which may or may not happen, according to the rumor mill)
  • MiguelMiguel Riding Level: 2,327
    The Cascadia Super G is a brand new, one of a kind event blending two of the hottest race formats in cycling today - enduro and gravel racing. Derived from the tried and true staples of cycling, it is the synthesis of a challenging mountain bike enduro combined with a fast and furious road race and a hard-core gravel grinder. This multi-faceted race is designed to test your endurance, technique and true grit.
    Yeah I think I'll pass
