Default new in town - tualatin area - want to ride

Hi I am new to Portland, a transplant from Miami. I live in Tualatin and would like to do some early morning weekend rides. I am not a big rider, but my goal is the do the STP ride. I have ridden (3) 150 mile rides.

I might like to join one of your organized rides one of these weekends. But I would also like to ride with someone localy.

Looking forward to riding in Oregon.

Greg

Smile I'd start looking at your LBS...

At my LBS (Performance, Beaverton) they often have a newsletter that is free. It has organized rides that take off from various locations round the area... I've never ridden one, but it seems like a good start. Oregon Cycling, and the Bicycling Paper are other resources you might look into.

Welcome to Oregon!

http://www.portlandvelo.net, a local cycling club.

Rides every day, some from the Tualatin area. You'll find riders in every speed, from the 15mph crowd to the Hammer and Nails folks. Our main ride is out of Longbottoms in Hillsboro at 9am on Saturday mornings.
