Sisters Ramble – Road Ride – Start at Aspen Lakes – 20 miles
August 2 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am
This ride was canceled last week due to poor air quality, so we are rescheduling it for today! Hope you can join!
This is a fun loop on the quiet country roads outside of Sisters with amazing scenery and an awesome countryside. It is a condensed version of the longer Sisters Ramble as we will be starting at Aspen Lakes Golf Club and avoid the climb out of Sisters.
We will meet in the parking lot of the Aspen Lakes Golf Club – 16900 Aspen Lakes Dr Sisters. The restroom is available. There is also a vault toilet at the Fryrear Trailhead where we will stop and take a short break. It is about 11 miles into the ride.
Ride Level: Advanced Beginner
Length of Ride: 20 miles with an elevation gain of 545ft
Terrain: Fully paved on mostly low traffic roads, however, there is a very short 1/2 mile stretch on hwy 20 and we cross hwy 20 twice. There is also about a 2 mile stretch on hwy 126 which has a very wide shoulder.
Pace: Comfortable 10-13mph average and we will regroup periodically as needed.
For Safety: Front/back bike lights; rear view mirror; flat tire repair kit
E-bikes are OK on this ride.
**Bella rides are “no drop” rides and no one will be left behind. If you choose to leave the group, you MUST let the leader know. You will then be on your own.
It helps to download this and see where the elevation gain is located.
