Advanced Beginner Eastside Combo ride
October 21, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm
Ready to roll at 10:30 am. This ride is for advanced beginner or better because there is no bike lane for a lot of it. Riders should have some experience riding in traffic. There is a lot of rolling terrain with low traffic volume, although there are a few places with traffic. The elevation gain is 674 ft and the distance is 28 miles. It is a fairly flat route, with a couple of hills. This is a fun road bike loop from Pine Nursery Park and back. It combines two eastside rides, the Airport Ride and the Eastside ride. With any luck we will see the donkeys at the Donkey Rescue on Bear Creek Road. There are also lovely views of the Cascades.
We will ride at a pace of about 12 mph. We should see some lovely fall colors. My contact info: Cell: 908-578-1922, e-mail: [email protected] will meet at Pine Nursery Park, near the Restrooms and playground. Please be sure to RSVP in case there are last minute changes. Rain, smoke, snow, etc. cancels the ride You MUST sign up to go on this ride. After you press ATTEND, be sure to fill out the “Complete Your RSVP” form with your cell number and Emergency Contact info, then press SUBMIT. Please RSVP by 6 pm on 10/20.

Please have a red rear light and a mirror, wear bright colors, and its also a good idea to have a front white light. You must also wear a helmet. Bring water and a snack. We can stop at Big Sky Park on the way back if the group wishes. Because this is a road ride, e-bikes are permitted.
