Easy Rider ROAD Bike Ride – South Twin Lake Out and Back

When: Tuesday, August 1st at 8:30 AM

Where: Meet in Subway parking lot off of Baker Road (map) at 8:30am. Or, meet in Sunriver in the parking lot behind the Sunriver Brewery at 9am. (Let Laury know if you are meeting us here or we won’t stop.)

Description of Ride: We will drive 11 miles on S. Century Drive to a parking lot on the left side of the road. There is space for 8 cars so we may need to carpool in order to not exceed 8 cars. We will ride 12 1/2 miles to the resort at the South Twin Lake. We will begin riding at the Fall River Trailhead. We will take a break at the lake; wear your bathing suit if you want to take a dip. There is a store and a toilet. We will return on the same road back to our cars.  There is a nice bike lane for the first half of the ride. The route is slightly downhill to the lake and slightly uphill back to the cars.

You can see details of the ride here: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/23318863. The ride is 25 miles with and elevation gain/loss of 590 feet.

NOTE: There is a possibility of riding 35 miles by parking at a different parking lot. Let Laury know if you prefer this option.

Optional: Lunch afterwards in Sunriver.

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.
