UPDATE 3/19 7:25PM - NEW MEETUP LOCATION AND ROUTE
There's no OBRA road race this weekend - perfect time to get in a big ride! This week we're doing a remote start beyond the Portland city limits in order to climb Bald Peak.
This ride has it all - forest, beautiful vineyards, killer climbs, thrilling descents, amazing views. If you have never explored the Bald Peak area, you will be amazed and delighted.
The route is 95% paved, but Dixon Mill Road is a mix of very easy smooth dirt mixed with maybe a mile of chunky gravel descending. We've done it on skinny road tires - it's not too bad.
When: Saturday, March 23
What: 54 miles, 3,700' of climbing
MeetUp:10am @ Insomnia Coffee
5389 E Main Street (W Baseline Road) Hillsboro, Oregon 97123
