NEW BELLAS Ride and Distanced Picnic
September 17 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
This ride is for NEW MEMBERS to get out and meet other Bellas and explore some Tumalo icons.
We’ll meet at Mimi’s house, 64150 Tanglewood Rd. One group of 6 will start at 9:00 led by Mimi and a second group will be led by Nancy Whitlatch and will start at 9:30. If you ride faster than 12 miles per hour, sign up for the second group. Please park on the street. We’ll briefly go over Bella rules of the road at a safe distance.
The ride is 19.5 miles with 494 ft of elevation gain with no huge hills. The map is linked below. Download it and we can show you how to navigate on Ride with GPS. This is a fairly easy ride for those with some road cycling experience.
Afterwards, we’ll enjoy a bag lunch, that you bring, out on the lawn at my house. We will practice social distancing and wear our masks when necessary.
Please be ready to roll out at start time.
