Starting on October 16th - THE definitive fall/winter Portland Group Ride Party is back! Hosted by The Club Roule - USA Cycling's 2020 National Club of the Year for Best Community Builder - and open to all, rain or shine! Let's build that offseason fitness together... because summer is just a state of mind. 

MEET-UP: 8:30am, we roll at 9am sharp from Crema at the Dumbbell
390 NE Couch Street - Portland, OR 97232

WHAT: 32 miles, 2200' elevation. This ride is no-drop and open to everybody, regardless of what team you race with, or if you have a team at all. Pace will be brisk with regrouping at tops of climbs and various points along the route. Plan for a 3-hour ride with regroups and inevitable punctures.

ROUTE: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/36233696 or similar; follow your ride leader.

EXPECTATIONS: Endless Summer Saturday rides have been VERY large in the past, and we'd love to see the Portland road cycling community show up in a big way again this year! With such a large group ride, and in often not awesome weather conditions, it is important to follow your group ride leader(s) instructions and their general pace, which may vary week to week given size of group, weather conditions, whether the Blazers won the night before in Double OT, etc. This ride is hosted by The Club Roule, and we'd love for you to be our courteous guests and treat this as a "meet-the-team" style ride. So let's all ride safe, support each other as we build a little winter fitness, and get to know some new people. This is also a great way to meet different teams ahead of Spring racing! #RoadIsComing

MASKS: We ask that all riders who plan to participate in Endless Summer Saturday be vaccinated in order to support the health and safety of our community, and your friends and family. Masks should be worn when not actively riding, ie: when chatting with folks before and after the ride, when eating, or when drinking. Our Community Partners also require masks when entering their establishments. Please be kind.

WHAT TO BRING:
A helmet (required, no exceptions)
Water
Snacks
Spare tubes and tire repair kit 
Fenders
A mask
Friends
A supportive attitude and a sense of humor regarding the weather ;)

ROULE TOGETHER CHALLENGE

As the world faces the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve decided to temporarily suspend our group rides in the interest of social distancing. In making that decision, we grappled with how best to keep encouraging each other to ride while continuing to support the local business community where we gather pre and post ride in Portland - as well as the local businesses where YOU gather all over the world. So, we decided to create something rad in the name of healthy communities, and leave it to you to participate in the way you’re most comfortable - anywhere in the world! Introducing the ROULE TOGETHER CHALLENGE. 

What it is:
A network of routes that you can ride SOLO that link together to different small businesses like coffee shops, delis, scoop shops, etc. - places with perishable items that cyclists can easily roll through and spend a few dollars at.We’ll all still riding together as a community, just doing it separately. Cool right? 

How it Works:
1. Follow @roulecycling on IG (So that you can DM us)
2. Share the Roule Together Challenge post (Optional: Tag a Portland-area business that you want to be a part of the Challenge. As new businesses are added, we’ll release new/updated routes.)
3. Go to “Group Rides” section of the Roule Cycling website for routes
4. Select a Route - Download - Ride! (in real life or on your trainer)
5. Stop at a participating businesses (if you are comfortable doing so), order something, take a photo, tag them and @roulecycling, and use #rouletogether and #theclubrouleRTC hashtags

    Want to participate and help small businesses that you care about, but live elsewhere in the world? No problem!
    1. Follow @roulecycling on IG (So that you can DM us)
    2. Share the Roule Together Challenge post & tag a local business or five that could use a hand
    3. Create a route that incorporates those businesses & send us a link to the route - we will post it on the Roule Cycling website for all the world to see and ride!

    Are you a small business and want to participate? 

    Send us a DM or an email that includes your address and type of items you sell. We will then incorporate your location into a cycling route. If you’d like to include a special offer for cyclists participating in the ROULE TOGETHER CHALLENGE, please let us know. 

    Let's roll out!
