Weekly Intermediate Road Group Ride 
A road ride intended for experienced and intermediate level road bicyclists. Enjoyed at a social/conversational pace along the Springwater Corridor bikeway, across the Sellwood Bridge, up through Riverview Cemetery and onward–incorporating a variety of rolling hills and a few challenging climbs on neighborhood streets–before stopping and beginning to disperse from Council Crest Park in SW Portland. Ride leaders will guide riders back to the start point at our stores, when needed/requested.

Meet at RCB's MLK store parking lot.
Thursdays, May 2 - Jun 22
Meet at 5pm, roll out at 5:15pm

Weekly Intermediate Road Group Ride 

A weekly ride intended for all levels of gravel bicyclists. Enjoyed at mellow/conversational pace from River City Bicycles to the Steel Bridge, to NW Naito Parkway, up NW Thurman St and into Forest Park along NW Leif Erikson Dr. While ride leaders will keep the pace as inclusive and social as possible, riders are encouraged to “choose their own pace and adventure” once into Forest Park, enabling faster and more ambitious groups to form and allowing slower riders to pedal comfortably. Efforts are made to re-group at the picnic table at NW Leif Erikson Dr and NW Saltzman, while it is understood that riders may disperse and guide themselves home at any point.

Meet at RCB's MLK store parking lot.
Every Saturday at 9am- Road Bike -  
Weekly Women's Road Group Ride 

This is a rain or shine ride! Prepare for 30-40 miles with a pace that generally hovers in the 14-19 mph range, faster than a recreational cruise. Learn more about this ride at sorellaforte.com 

Meet at RCB's MLK store parking lot. 
* Please do not park in main lot for ride.

Women-Led Hydraulic Brake Clinic 

In partnership with the NWTA Trail Sisters, RCB Mechanics Isabella, and Sarah hosted a robust one-hour, hands-on clinic exploring Sram and Shimano hydraulic brake systems. And of course, there were drinks and shop talk after. This clinic was a hit and we sold out in one day!  Sign up for more clinic updates.  

Looking forward to more group rides.

We partnered with the NWTA for a monthly series of rides led by our amazing RCB Women. READ previous ride recaps here:
