For information/details: Contact Barb Smith at (541) 508-8527 or

When: Monday, April 16th

Ride Description: This ride is for beginner riders, ones with little to no experience, or for anyone just wanting to go out a easy beginner pace and ride some trails and a few streets.

We will ride down the gravel Robert Sawyer Park trail (down river ) to the end and turn around. There are a few short hills and double track wide. After returning to the parking lot we will take 1st Street rapids trail to Pioneer park and take back roads through town, Drake Park, Drake Dr. and 1st Street back to 1st Street Rapids trail and back to the parking lot. This is a 10.9 mile ride with very little incline. About 2 1/2 hour ride.

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.

******Be sure to bring your signed waivers if you are not a Bella’s member. Non-members are welcome on their first ride without a membership but must sign this waiver and give it to the ride leader before the ride. Please note that this privilege may only be used once – you must become a member before attending your second Bella ride. You can download a waiver here. BBC Membership Waiver 2018

Lunch afterward for those interested.
