Every Neighborhood in Milwaukie has its secret places...

We're going to explore most of them.

Come on the Milwaukie's Hidden Routes ride and see the nooks,
crannies, alleys, and cut-throughs of Milwaukie. We're going to ride
nearly every legal shortcut through Milwaukie's negihborhoods. This
is not a ride for the faint-hearted. Bring a mountain bike, or put
wide knobbies on your road bike and bring a patch kit or a spare tube.
We're going to see brambles, dirt, gravel, hills, thrills, and
hopefully no spills.

There are a couple of steep descents on this ride, a fair amount of
low hill climbing (at least 4 ascents up to 200' elevation change
each).

Here is the route: http://tinyurl.com/387w35
Start time is 6pm, Thursday, July 19th. Repeat performance on
Wednesday, July 25th for those who can't make the first ride or want
to ride it again.
16 miles, approximately 2 hours. Start and end at Milwaukie City
Hall, 10722 SE Main Street, Milwaukie.

Live far to the north in Portland? No excuse - Milwaukie City Hall
sits right next to a Tri-Met transit center. Take buses 31, 32, 33,
70, 75 or 99 to get there from downtown Portland or the NE side.
