Edgefield to Larch Mountain
August 17 at 8:45 am - 2:00 pm
Hey Team! This Saturday we will meet at McMenamin’s Edgefield for a gentle out-n-back ride along the historic highway to Women’s Forum. At the Women’s Forum, options will be to turn around, or continue on for a VERY CHALLENGING, LONG CLIMB either part way, or all the way to the top of Larch Mountain. All three routes share the first 10 miles, so we will be together for the first part of the ride.
We will ALL meet at 8:45am in the car park at Edgefield prepared to leave at 9. We meet in the car park that is the first on the right from the Westernmost entrance to Edgefield: its right by the Ruby Spa.
Gentle out-n-back climb to Women’s Forum: 20-mile option (1100 feet of climbing):
Climb part of Larch Mountain 30 mile option (1926 feet of climbing):
All of Larch Mountain 48.4 mile option (4230 feet of climbing):
Please Note: The 14 mile descent down Larch Mt can get VERY chilly, bring arm warmers, a vest, or light jacket for descent.
Please be prepared to be self-sufficient – carry your own cue sheet for navigation, water, fuel/food, spare tube, tire levers, frame pump or CO2 cartridge, multi-tool, money, etc.
This ride led by Christine Schwaeber (aka “Craystine” because the girl LOVES hills); contact her at 503-481-3450 with questions.
Food and drinks afterward at Edgefield of course!
