Road Ride – Tumalo Loop – 22 miles
May 17, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Organizer: Mary Fajer 503-369-2914 or [email protected]
This will be limited to 8 riders, in order to stay within the Bella guidelines for social distancing. Masks are strongly encouraged during our pre-ride remarks and during our rest stops.
***Our pace will be 11-13 mph and we will regroup periodically.
Please don’t sign up if you are a stronger, faster rider, or you cannot ride 22 mils at this pace.
***Our starting point will be the Tumalo Coffee House at 19855 4th Street in Tumalo. There is a restroom at the coffee house or a porta potty down the street at the Shell station. There are no restrooms along the route.
***We will gather promptly at 9:15am for a brief meeting and then roll out onto the route. We will travel on mostly low traffic roads, however, there is a very short 1/2 mile stretch on Hwy 20. Also, we will cross Hwy 20 twice, so be careful.
***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 Infomation, then SUBMIT. If needed, please cancel at least 24 hours prior to the ride so that anyone on the waitlist can attend.
This route takes us on much of the Twin Bridges Scenic Bikeway(including three ass pass)with beautiful mountain views and an awesome countryside.
It helps to look at this in advance and print it out if possible. Pay attention to the elevation profile to see where the hills are. The elevation gain is 710ft.
Rain cancels the ride. Check Meetup by 7:30am on the morning of the ride for any updates.
***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 given of the ride.
***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 are allowed on this ride. You MUST be a current Bella member to attend.
***We can go the The Bite in Tumalo for lunch afterwards for those interested. Outdoor seating is available.
