If you’re new to Portland’s bike racing scene and you want to ride with a team, you should consider hooking up with the Oregon Bicycle Racing Association’s (OBRA) “Meet the Team” rides.
So far, eight rides are planned on consecutive Saturdays beginning with a special Ladies Ride this weekend.
OBRA’s Meet the Teams Ride coordinator Uma Kleppinger says the women-only ride will, “give unattached [without a team] riders an opportunity to speak with several coed or women-only teams and get a sense of the culture and opportunities each one provides.”
Other rides on the schedule will give would-be racers a chance to hang out and pedal with local teams like Organic Athlete, GSC United, Sorella Forte, Team Oregon, and others.
See the OBRA website for a full schedule of this year’s Meet the Team Rides.
