Description of Ride: We will ride on low-traffic roads around Redmond and Smith Rock. We will ride into Smith Rock State Park and stop for a break. There are a few moderate hills. The pace will average 12 mph and we will regroup occasionally. We will cross Hwy 97 twice.

You can see details of the ride here: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/23776186.  This ride is 19 miles long with an elevation gain/loss of 500 feet.

Optional:  Lunch afterwards in Redmond

This ride is for advanced beginner or better riders – ones who are gaining experience with longer distances with some elevation gain and single-track trails with minimally technical terrain such as small rocks and/or tree roots. The rider should be comfortable changing from easy to moderate technical terrain and short steep uphill climbs and downhill descents with obstacles.

All riders have an obligation to the ride coordinator to let her know if they are leaving the ride. Bella rides are “no drop” rides. No one will get left behind unless they choose to cut a ride short, want to go faster than the group or take a different route. When you leave the group, you are on your own.
