Slug Velo - Fall Colors Ride
Slug Velo - Fall Colors Ride

This morning, Eleni and I packed up the trailer and joined Slug Velo for their Fall Colors ride. We met up with about 30 other folks and pedaled down the Springwater Corridor trail, past Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge, through Sellwood, down to Reed College and back to the Lucky Lab on Hawthorne.

It was a beautiful ride! Fall is just a great time of year to be on a bike. Leaves in rich hues of orange, yellow, brown and red fill the streets and offer surprises around every corner.

I’ve been meaning to check out Slug Velo for a while now and I’m glad I did. I met some nice people and it was cool to see young and old, newbie and veteran, all riding and enjoying the roads together. Thanks for the invite Beth! I’m already looking forward to next month’s ride.

[Don’t take my word for it, check out my gallery of photos and see the fun for yourself!]

    So it looks like you took some of those photos from the saddle. How do you do that without falling off?

    It’s really not that bad. My camera is just a small point and shoot and I have a little pouch that I keep tight around my chest. It’s got a velcro strap so I can get in and out quickly/easily. I find that the best shots come while I’m riding!

    Hey Jonathan, great pics! I didn’t know it was your first Slug ride also. Great bunch of people. Good to see you there!

  • […] I was very sad to miss Slug Velo’s annual Fall Colors Ride. I went last year and loved it. Can anyone give us a report on how it went? I’d love to hear about it. […]
