8/23/14: The route this week is Buffalo Ranch (47.2 miles, 1,465 feet)The route has a loop on either end with an 8 mile common connector in the middle.  It's flat so enjoy the respite between last week and next week's climbing routes.  Enjoy the scenery, smell the buffalo's.  The route goes out Rood Bridge, across Burkhalter, by the golf course and then into Forest Grove via Fern Hill.  Then it loops past Maggie's and out B st, onto Old 47 and heads back via Fern Hill to retrace the connector, past the golf course and back in via Minter Bridge to Brookwood. The weather looks to be clear and sunny again during the ride with temps in the 60's to 70's - perfect cycling weather.

Portland Velo was founded in February 2006 by a bunch of folks (35 of us, actually) who simply enjoyed riding bikes together. Since then we've grown to over 600 members. Our philosophy is "It's All About The Ride" - join us for a ride and find out why we continue to be Oregon's premier cycling club.
