Berretin ride and the Southern Cross

Hola ciclistas and fair weather riders,

Fair weather is upon us once again. We had enough folks living down the Clinton way that I’m offering up the southern cross – 34th and Clinton as a meetup spot if you’re wanting to ride out to Berretin, but don’t want to haul all the way to NE 28th for gelato.

The route is generally 34th to Clinton, then Clinton to 65th. If you’re anywhere along the route, please feel free to join in.

Which reminds me, hey inner northeast, where are you? Sure we get people riding down from Peninsula Park, or University of Portland in St. Johns, but what about you lurkers within scooping distance of Staccato Gelato? Represent already! (Southwest, it’s ok. It’s really not your fault. Someday the city will make it possible to ride a bike over there…)

Date: Saturday April 18th.
Time: 9pm
Place: Staccato Gelato (NE 28th and Everett)
Details: This ride is a leisurely cruise through southeast Portland
along some great bike routes featuring big trees, handsome houses and
very little traffic. Unless it’s really hot, you may not even break a sweat.

Meet at 9pm, get some gelato, hang out. The ride leaves for Berretin at
9:30pm. This gives you a 30 minute window in which to arrive for the
ride. We should arrive at Berretin around 10pm. See you at 34th and Clinton around 9:45.

You need a white light
mounted on the front of your
bike to ride at night.

Ride of Spring

I really meant to do this on March 21st, but since there are still a few days of Spring left, let’s kick it off in bike riding style! Have you seen the forecast for Saturday night? I’m telling you, it’s looking fine. You don’t have to take it from me, go ask the NOAA. All you guilty people who have been telling me you are fair weather riders, this is it!
