Update for September 18: The ride is cancelled. Note from the ride leader:
We are cancelling the rides due to the weather.
But we will meet at 10am, same place, for a walk if anyone wants to join us. That is if there are no thunderstorms or really heavy rain at that time!

The Mini-Quake ride is offered as a slower paced, shorter, and easier version of the classic Earthquake ride. If you are unsure about maintaining the pace or going the distance of the Earthquake ride, then this ride is right for you. The route is similar, though cutting the distance and reducing the hill-climbing. We ride through downtown, then north to Felida area, east on the Salmon Creek Greenbelt trail, south via Hazel Dell Ave. The timing is such that the two rides generally meet and re-group together at the restrooms at the Greenbelt ball fields. No one intentionally left behind.
Depending on how much you have left in your legs and lungs, there are 2 options available to complete the route:
- Climb McLoughlin (regular EQ route)
- Climb half of Blandford via Evergreen
All options lead back to the River Maiden. Plan on staying around for coffee and socializing after the ride.
Note this ride is a shared leadership ride and will be led one of the following Ride Leaders:
- Anne Moyers: +1.360.608.0641
- Mary Ann Teague: +1.360.693.9331
When neither of them are able to lead the ride, a substitute is usually found.
