8/29/15 - 9:00 am Roll-Out
Rainy Day II (42.9 miles, 1,162 feet)
The route seems appropriate given the forecast for Saturday. It takes us up Pumpkin Ridge before heading west to Clapshaw Hill - Hillside and back through Verboort. We first head out Jackson School across OR 26 to the pallet factory. We traverse Shadybrook and then climb Pumpkin Ridge Rd. From there we descend on Pumpkin Ridge DR and Old Pumpkin Ridge Rd to Mountaindale. Then we head back across OR26 and out Harrington to Roy - restroom & water if needed. We follow Greenville to Clapshaw Hill, do a bit of climbing, and then enjoy the descent and rollers of Hillside - always more work than they seem. Next it's through Verboort and heading home via Wren & Leisy. Then it's Evergreen and Longbottoms for those in need of caffeine and community.
The forecast for this Saturday looks to be a real change - RAIN - with ride temperatures in the mid-50's to mid-60's. THINK FENDERS & Rain Bikes!!
