Easy Road Ride – Redmond to Smith Rock – 22 miles
July 16, 2020 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am
Lets do an Easy Ride to Smith Rock!
Organizer: Mary Fajer 503.369.2914 or [email protected]
This ride will be about 22 miles long, at a pace of 10-12mph. Please do not sign up if you are a stronger rider, or if you cannot ride this distance and/or pace. The ride will be limited to 6 people, myself included.
Please meet at the North Entrance to the Dry Canyon in Redmond. Address is 3100 NW 19th Street. Directions: Drive through Redmond and beyond on Hwy 97. After you have left Redmond, look for the yellow blinking light and the sign “Pershall Way” and turn LEFT. Then turn LEFT again onto NW 19th St. Drive to the end and follow the sign to the right into the parking lot. There is a porta-potty there.
Please allow at least 45 minutes to drive there and get yourself ready to ride, depending on where you are coming from.
We will gather promptly at 8:30am for a brief pre-ride meeting. Please wear a mask at this meeting, and keep 6 feet of distance from each other then and at any rest stops.
We will head out onto the route via Coyner to NW Way, then into Terrrabonne where we will cross Hwy 97. We will then ride to Smith Rock where we will take a break and enjoy the beautiful view. The restroom at Smith Rock is open.
After the break, we will loop back into Redmond thru quiet residential areas and ride on part of the Dry Canyon Trail. This is a beautiful ride with many scenic mountain views and an awesome countryside.
It helps to look at the route in advance and print it out if possible. Send it to your phone for voice navigation. Pay attention to the elevation profile to see where the hills are.
