MORE Hills (Steady)
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
E Bikes are welcome!
Join us for a Midweek Outdoor Riding in Evening (MORE) Hills! MORE Hills typically occur Wednesday evenings from March to August at Steady and Moderate paces when Ride Leaders are available. Rides will be about 20 miles with a handful of steep or "pitchy" hills thrown in. It is a perfect way to add a little training for otherwise weekend riders without spending too much time.
This week's MORE Hills starts at 6pm at Lower Woodland Park and that's a "roll out" time. Please come earlier to hear safety briefing and sign a waiver. Still shorter route, but with challenging hills. Please bring both front and back lights in case of some hold-backs.
We will regroup at top of major hills for a reasonable time, but if you are too fast/slow for the majority, it will become self-paced. Stops will be brief. We want everyone to ride hard but to have fun and get back safely.
Please bring your own cue sheet or routing device. Please pack water, snack, and tools/tubes to fix a flat as always. Even though the majority of ride will be in daylight, please have your lights (both front and back) just in case of unforeseen holdups. There is no scheduled stop en route, but we can stop to refill bottles as necessary. Carrying ORCA card and/or small bills (for bus) in case of unfixable mechanical is a good idea.
Weather notice: In case of inclement weather, the ride leader will post a cancellation notice in the comments section below not less than two hours prior on the day of the ride, and Ride Leaders will not be at the ride start.
Everyone is welcome, including those who aren't so sure about hill climbing. BUT PLEASE BRING A SMILE AND GOOD ATTITUDE WITH YOU! Yes, it's hilly. Yes, it's hard! But, seeing the view from the top is always rewarding :-).
This week's route begins with a warmup on the Fremont Ave / Interurban corridor, then heads up (and down and up and down) through North City, Briercrest and Kenwood. We'll pass by the hidden Grace Cole Park (a real park) in Lake Forest Park (not a real park).
