Gravel ride, west edge of Bend forests
September 14, 2022 @ 2:30 am - 4:30 am
My first time leading a Bellas ride, please join me! It’s a Gravel Bike Ride across the top of Shevlin Park, up a short stretch of Skyliners, and back into the forest where we eventually come out at Phil’s area. 18 miles, 1200’ or so of steady climbing, mostly in the first 10 miles. Mostly unpaved , except Skyliners, many surfaces. Pace will be moderate, at about 10 mph average. Route to download to your device is here: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/40883674
**Meet at 9:30 am at Shevlin Commons, a small parking area off left side of Shevlin Park Rd @ Park Commons Rd, BEFORE you go down the hill to Shevlin Park. We roll at 9:45.
**Safety: a helmet is required, and a light is recommended, for our short distance on Skyliners.
**You MUST sign up to go on this ride. After you press ATTEND, be sure to fill out “Complete Your RSVP” with your cell phone number, your Emergency contact name and their number then hit SUBMIT. If needed, please cancel at least 24 hours prior to the ride so that anyone on the waitlist can attend.

**Bella rides are “no drop” rides and no one will be left behind. In consideration of others, we ask that you choose a ride that is close to your skill level based on the description.
If you choose to leave the group by going significantly faster, or taking a different route you have an obligation to let the leader know. When you leave the group, you are on your own.
No guests may join this ride. You MUST be a current Bella member to attend.
