7/26/14: The route this week is Bald Peak - Holly Hill (35.6 miles, 2,238 feet)This route is pretty simple.  You have 14 miles of flat to warm up, then you'll climb 600' up Bald Peak Rd - with much of it 9-10% grade.  Then a screaming descent down Laurel to the store and you get to do it all over again - another 600' climb up Holly Hill Rd - but this time at more moderate slope.  Then it's back to the store over another wonderful descent.  Lastly it's 14 miles of flat back home - a route for those who love symmetry!  Weather is predicted to be clear & sunny during the ride with temps in the low 60's to mid 70's during the ride.

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.
