Nice little video from the Breadwinner crew about the Oregon Outback.
I post a lot about women’s 100 with the assumption that people know what I’m on about, but, in case you’re not familiar, here’s what we’re up to:
"On Sunday 20th July 2014, join thousands of women around the world to ride 100km. A global event, ride on your own or join an organised ride. Rides will be taking place everywhere, including several led by Rapha. Over 4,000 women took part in 2013 — this year we’re aiming to double that number."
If you’re in Portland, reach out and join our ride! Currently, we have the following events going on:
-Weekly: Thursday women’s ride from Rapha’s Portland office at 5:30
-June 29th: Women’s 100 training ride, start/finish at River City, about 50 miles, plenty of time to ask questions about how to train to ride 100k
-July 20th: Women’s 100! Start at Rapha and ride to Women’s Forum in the Columbia River Gorge. RSVP here
We’re Oakridge for the weekend, crammed into a budget hotel room (complete with kitchenette!) and riding bikes. Tacky dirt and good weather bodes well for a fun three days in one of my favorite places in Oregon.
Good night out at Tabor for all!
Ha! Caught giving Ed a high five in one of these
Hood River Enduro
Last weekend was the first Oregon Enduro Series race in Hood River. For me, it was basically like going for a really awesome group ride where no one in the group has to navigate or deal with logistics. I had a blast riding with some truly amazing ladies but I wouldn’t say I rode my fastest or even felt like I was competing. I have to figure out how to flip that switch and turn it into something more than just a fun group ride if I’m ever going to be competitive in this format of racing. Or I can just keep mountain biking. Either way I’m happy, except for the whole mid-stage-bee-sting thing, that was lame and my leg still hurts.
