Slow Hill Ride – Montgomery Madness
The Slow Hill Ride Series is designed for those who want to increase their hill climbing ability but aren’t necessarily concerned with speed. While riders are welcome to take a map/cue sheet and go their own speed, riders will not be left behind. The ride leader will regroup with those who want to stay together. So come out and get that heart pumping and those thighs strong to reach your summer riding goals. Please park on the street and meet on the sidewalk along 41st. Today we'll cover 1530 feet of elevation. From 41st and Woodstock, we’ll head down the Springwater to the esplanade and cross the Hawthorne Bridge. We’ll make our way to Montgomery and do the majority of our climbing on this long and winding road. Hewett offers a beautiful descent, then we pass the Oregon Zoo on our way to the Rose Garden. From there we head north to Thompson and back along the waterfront making our coffee stop at Elephant’s or Starbucks at the Tilikum Bridge. Once we’re back on the east side, we’ll use the elevators to cross the train tracks at Brooklyn Yards and head up Gladstone to the start.
