Right now I take NW Everett, Broadway, then SW Terwilliger to Beaverton-Hillsdale - the end goal being SW Farmington Road and 204th by 5 or so. I would love company since right now, I meekly hop on the sidewalk (or just walk, really) through stretches of Beaverton, and it would be great to be more visible and take the lane. Let's conquer the west side!
I leave from NW Everett and Trinity Place (the back end of the cathedral) at 3:30 on Sundays. I'm about intermediate, I think, but aren't really into toe clips and the slick bicycling scene. I'm here for the jerry-rigged adventures. If you want to stare down Terwilliger like it's Mount Doom, and stop at the halfway mark to eat homemade bread on the grass, this is totally your ride.
(So far, I don't ride back, but eventually I'll be coming back at about 7 or 8.)
E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you want to solidify plans (I take TriMet some days) or guide me through different routes. I would love that.
