Giro PDX 2018 – Le Foglie Morte di Sud Portlandia

August 25, 2018 at 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Free of fees and open to anyone masochistic enough to ride it.

ROUTE DESCRIPTION – Hard. Beautiful. Varied. Eye opening. Classic. You will ride through SW Portland, Lake Oswego, West Linn, and Stafford Triangle. You will conquer beautiful and challenging climbs and likely wonder “How did I not know this exists so close to home?!” You will see many jaw dropping homes new and old. In between the mansions you will ride past horses, cows and vineyards. You will discover interesting nooks and crannies of the area. It is mostly paved. However there are three sections of single track in WL and LO city parks that allow bikes.

INSPIRATION – Giro di Lombardia – La Classica Delle Foglie Morte. The Race of the Falling Leaves. A climbers race that also circumnavigates a lake. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giro_di_Lombardia
