Compendium of Regular PDX Area Rides
Pretty amazed that there's almost nothing here, so I'm starting a thread where folks can post about regular (open) rides they know about, and I'll pull together the info into an overall post. I'll create three sections, one for beginner/easy, one for intermediate and one for fast/advanced.

If there's already a resource like this, feel free to school me.

Ride info should include this info:

Ride Name
Description/Theme (women only, racers, recumbents, spandex vs. street clothes, etc.)
Typical Pace (in avg. mph or beg/int/adv)
Typical Length
Flat or Climb? (include rough total vertical ft.)
Day/Time of Ride
Location of Start and/or Finish

Portland Velo has intermidiate/adv rides many mornings of the week, and a larger ride every Sat at 9am starting out at La Cie HQ in Hillsboro:


Looks awesome but I need to find something on the East side.

Funny how League of American Wheelmen became League of American Bicyclists but it's still Portland Wheelmen.

When I started reading books about cycling, it said when LAW members wore their jackets, they were mistaken for police. Really? LOL. Maybe that's why they changed their name?
