CW Loop around Bend
This is the C-pace version of the Saturday ride trifecta. Check the calendar for B- and D-paced rides starting and finishing from the same spot.
Meet at On Tap, ready to ride at 9:00 AM.
This ride makes a lovely CW loop around Bend, sticking to roads with nice bike lanes or fairly low traffic. We start at the On Tap Food Truck lot, head east down Alfalfa a bit, then quickly turn south, east, and south, finding 15th St. for the big traverse to the south end of the route. We'll make a jig and a jog and find ourselves crossing over Hwy 97 on Murphy to find Brookswood Blvd. for the trek north, back towards Old Mill. After a quick dodge around a busy circle, we'll ride the bike lanes on Reed Market, Mt. Washington, and Shevlin Park Rd. until we find ourselves climbing back to wide open spaces on the NW corner of our route. A quick dive down Johnson Road and Bailey Hill, a hazardous crossing of Hwy 20, and we'll find ourselves in Tumalo, where delicious smells tempt us to stop. But, there's no rest for this crew; we make a beeline out of Tumalo, climb out of the river gorge, and follow Tumalo Road until we cross Hwy 20 at Deschutes Market Road and the final dash on smooth asphalt all the way back to On Tap.
WE NEED SOMEONE TO LEAD THIS RIDE at an average C-pace, 13-15 mph. No drops and everyone promises to play well together.
Join us at On Tap after the ride for bite and a beverage.
