    Where: Krispy Kreme at Andresen and Padden Parkway

    When: Meet up every Wednesday at about 5:45 PM, kickstands up a bit after 6:00 PM. We generally expect to be back in Vancouver by dark or shortly after.

    Route: It will vary, but will be discussed before we embark. As the days get longer, so will the route!

    All riders, all makes and models, and all skill levels are welcome and encouraged to join us! The pace will vary depending on the group, and we will split into multiple groups as needed. Come on out and enjoy some fantastic, low-key rides with the greatest bunch of riders around! :mfclap:

    Are you new to the group or new to group riding? Don't be bashful, just join us! Show up, introduce yourself, ask questions, get to know us, and enjoy the evening. And, if you haven't ridden with us yet, here's some suggested reading:

    http://pnwriders.com/portland-region/110007-how-we-ride-group-riding-2010-update.html is a guide to better group riding, thanks to Lena and the PDX crew.

    "The Pace" by Nick Ienatsch. Highly recommended reading and it reflects our style of riding.


    Please arrive fully fueled and ready to roll. And that includes having your chain adjusted and other basic maintenance taken care of. (edited per OP request - MM)

    I looked for your standing ride, but I didn't see one stickied. (BTW, waiting for Michelinman to sticky this one... unless you can without stepping on toes)

    :)

    Wednesday is best because it is exactly in-between weekends!

    We haven't started it yet - you're kinda early, but why not. PM him, I can't do it here.

    Yeah, that's why there's gotta be something on Wednesday, I totally agree.

    Good deal on getting a job, Devin... sucks that you have to work wed. evenings. Is that going to be permanent over the summer, or can you trade shifts with someone else?
     
  7. :mfclap::mfclap::mfclap:Can't Wait! perfect for me. I work on wednesdays but usually off by 4 so I'll be there every chance I get

    Should be there.
     
  11. I might show up, possibly with a few of my riding friends. We normally ride all over Vancouver. I'll get a hold of people tomorrow. Would be nice to meet other local riders.

  12. I'm going to try and make it there tonight
     
  13. If I get out and about I'll come say hi:mrgreen:
     
  14. My one very sore spot. :rant Andresen is spelled with an "E", not an "O" - just look my last name "Petersen". For over 30 years here in the USA I've printed it on forms, spelled it out loud, both..... only to get it back spelled with an "O" again. :rant :rant :rant

    Ok, I feel better now. :mrgreen:

    I know how you feel, although Wednesday is perfect for me. But every weekend...:banghead: WORK!

    I won't make it today/tonight, but I am looking forward to hopefully having my bike ready for next week. 8)

    ^^ fixed. Sorry, Pete Petersen. I will probably never misspell that name again.

    See you all in a few minutes. We'll miss you Pete... perhaps see you next week :)
     
  16. Great to see you all today...hope you enjoyed your ride.8)
     
  17. Had fun, great pace, dry roads, everyone stayed rubber side down...now I'm just pissed I'm not sitting at McM's with a nice dark beer in my hand. Thanks everyone, was fun.
     
  18. Yeah, great ride! hope to do it again.
