Hills and BBQ at Vanc Cyclery 9 am (VAN)

                Let's ride some hills in Ridgefield and then eat BBQ with Will and the gang at Vancouver Cyclery.

Except - "some hills" is not how this ride feels.  One hill after another.  Lots.  On this ride we're basically either riding up or down, not much flat.

       MAP LINK  



We meet in a new location just north of Vancouver Cyclery.  Yard 'n' Garden graciously allowed us to use their gravel employee parking lot north of their garden center.  Please DO NOT PARK IN THEIR REGULAR LOT, 

They are right next to Vancouver Cyclery where we'll head when we return for their Customer Appreciation Day with BBQ and a bike raffle and who knows what else.  

Start:  9am!  Eat some breakfast and bring a snack.
No water en route, but there are bushes to get rid of some... 

This route is hilly, but if I can do it, YOU can too.

Pace: I will try to keep a steady 14, but with the hills it will likely be a fluctuation of SLOW up and INSANE down.   I like to fly down for the thrill and also to help me get up the other side!  Lots of roller practice on this route. We'll regroup as needed in the first safe space available.
Print a cue from the map link: choose PRINT Map and Cue, check only Include Cue Sheet, size 16 font gets you a cue that's 1-page and easy to read.  My printer is sulking.  Or download route to your device.



PUMP YOUR TIRES if you haven't ridden in a few days.  Bring a spare tube that fits your wheels. Check brakes!

Please arrive 15 minutes early to sign up and be a part of the announcements and safety briefing. Riders are expected to have read the Safe Riding Policy and be familiar with the Ride Style Definitions. Please direct questions to the ride leader or Road Captain.

Helmets are required. Lights (front and rear), RoadIDs and cell phones are recommended. Please make sure to print a ride cue sheet, if you need one. Make sure your bike is in good working order.

Riders should be able to maintain the stated pace of the group they choose. Please communicate with the leader if you decide to go off route or not return to the start. We want to be awesome representatives for cycling and spread a love for our great sport locally by obeying traffic laws and riding in a safe and courteous manner. Ride safely and have fun!
