Dodd’s Loop Road Ride
October 18 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
This beautiful loop on Bend’s east side is just under 30 miles and has about 800 total feet of climbing, all on gentle rollers. The first 10 miles are on a busier road and so, we will mostly be riding single file. The next two thirds have less vehicle traffic and we can relax and enjoy the stunning views and fall colors.
Bring money if you want to purchase a cold beverage or snacks at the Alfalfa Market store where we will regroup for a short break. Don’t forget your mask😷
This is a great ride for Bellas who have some road cycling experience. My pace is about 14 mph. Generally, I find 3 hours is plenty of time to ride, have a couple of stops and be back to the start by noon.
There are bathrooms and water at Big Sky Park and a porta-pottie in Alfalfa. Please be ready to roll out at 9 am.
