|Monday Night||Thursday Night||Saturday Morning|
The Saturday Morning Ride is an inclusive, moderately paced (16-18mph), longer than usual, no-drop ride. We’re not setting records, here—we’re just out to enjoy our bikes in the morning.
We frequently start the season earlier and end later than other weekly rides, as we are not affected by the changing light. If it’s warm enough (at least 45°) to start up in February, we will.
The Saturday ride is great training for charity rides and an opportunity for veterans to add a recovery ride to their week while lending their group experience to newer riders. Routes purposely vary to introduce cyclists to the variety of roads in the greater Portland area, and all of our rides are mapped on www.mapmyride.com—just search for CCCP to see all the places we go.
We leave every Saturday at 8am from 15 Baxter Boulevard, but always check the blog or Facebook for changes in departure time, weather updates, and a map of the week’s ride. Though there is just one group on Saturdays, we can usually provide a shorter option (20-30 miles) of the full loop if you need a shorter day.
Be prepared: Since this ride is typically longer than the other weeklies, we ask that you carry two bottles of water or sports drink, a spare tube and flat repair tools, and snacks—we’re going to be gone for a while.
