Osbridge 2012 group bicycle ride
Where and When to Meet
11:15AM-12:00PM Friday Unconference Session
Meet outside the hackathon on Salmon and we'll leave from there around 11:20AM with the goal of returning at lunch time.
Local Volunteers Requested
I (Casey West) am a non-local and humbly request local cyclists to lead this ride and assist on the route if you think it ought to be adjusted for safety or skill. Thanks!
There is construction near 2nd and Jefferson, and the exact configuration seems to change daily. I recommend that someone check this out Friday morning, and maybe come up with a alternate in case it's blocked or difficult. I'm not sure that Naito is a beginner-friendly street, but for just a few blocks it may be okay. David Burns 18:21, 27 June 2012 (PDT)
Four Mile Ride Map
Here is a link to the proposed route which follows bike-lane roads and bike paths as much as possible.
It crosses the river twice. This ride is intended for riders of all skill levels and will be taken at a leisurely pace. The group will stay together. There is a climb coming back to osbridge from the river on Jefferson, however there is a bike lane and we will all ride together.
Rent a Bike
If you don't have a bicycle you can rent them from bike shops and tour shops in the area. Here is a google map to the "bike rental" search results from Google Maps: http://goo.gl/maps/IwHG
