Ride to Defeat ALS

Ride to Defeat ALS on July 14 is a relaxing cruise through the Willamette Valley.

The ride starts and ends in Mt. Angel, located just under and hour from Portland but seemingly worlds away. You’ll cruise along quiet rural roads, through the quaint Gallon House Covered Bridge, pass farmland and working fields as you sink into the landscape for the day.

This ride has a little something for everyone, with routes of 25, 50, 62, 75 and 100 miles to choose from. You’ll love the friendly support every pedal stroke of the way, and the many friendly other riders. This ride just has a great community feel. The event includes a festival finish line party at the Mt. Angel Festhalle, home to Oregon’s large Oktoberfest.

Bikes Take you Places Where Cars Cannot.

There are many reasons for a person to opt for two wheels instead of four. One of the top reasons is that the two wheels are more flexible than four just like casinos online that can be visited anytime and anywhere. Bikes can easily access many places that cars cannot.

Staircases

Staircases are accessible to bikers as a quick cut-through. In many cases, there is no need for the biker to physically lift the bike when going up or down the stairs. This is thanks to a cool design feature. This is a narrow ledge along the staircase which allows you to push your bike. Staircases which normally serve people on foot now are now being using by people when they ride their bikes too.

Getaways

On two wheels, a biker can access places a person driving a car cannot. There are cars that can access the steep mountaintop but will have limits. Cars are left choking on dust when it comes to the most outrageous rides. A trip by bike to the top of a steep hill is exciting.

Parking

Bikes do not require that much space to park when compared to cars. Parking space is never a scarcity. And when garage space is limited, the house can easily accommodate a bike.

Freestyling and ramping.

The modern-day popular bicycle games are racing, freestyling and ramping. The manoeuvrability of bikes enables rides to be more flexible and creative resulting in amazing stunts and bicycle manipulation. Of course, this is a more dangerous hobby than playing online pokies win real money but the thrills are just as real.

Shortcuts

Want to reach your destination faster? Consider taking a bike. Bikes can take shortcuts through neighbourhood parks and parking lots. You are able to take shortcuts whenever wherever. This is because bikes can squeeze in between the impossible spaces.

Some of these shortcuts are worthwhile as you get a chance to experience nature at a closer range. Making contact with a fresh breeze, sunlight and even the odd squirrel or bird.

Sidewalks

Cars tend to get stuck in traffic but bikes can make use of the sidewalks. When cycling you can make use of the sidewalks whenever there is a need, provided you follow local laws for sidewalk use and you are respectful of other sidewalk users.

A Friendly Mt. Bike Event for Women

What I mean by it being a women friendly event is that this is a festival where women feel awesome being there, even when they’re there alone. How do I know? Well, secret’s out: I’ve been to Mt. Bike Oregon 17 times – since the event first started. Because of my role there, I talk with a lot of people and women go out of their way to tell me what a good time they’re having, how nice everyone is, how awesome they feel… even when they’re there alone.

There are women’s rides with in the event, super friendly attendees and the nightly beer garden under the stars is a fun event that’s just rowdy enough to feel like a party, without the late night antics that might ruin you for tomorrow’s ride

Shred Your Heart Out

So if you love hitting the trail and want to get some serious riding in this year, Mt. Bike Oregon is the perfect event for you.
