Saturday Morning Rides are Back

After a long 16-month hiatus, our Saturday River City recreational group rides are back as of Saturday, July 10, 2021.

Now that more than 70% (and climbing) of Oregonians are COVID-19 vaccinated as of July and Oregon is opening up, we are back on the road hosting our Saturday rides at River City Bicycles, our shop sponsor’s Portland store.

We ask that unvaccinated riders wear a mask or face covering. Fully vaccinated riders are welcome to wear a mask per their comfort level, but at this time it is not required.

See About our Rides section for full details and what to expect when you plan to join us.

Saturday Morning Rides Cancelled

After speaking with Sorella’s board and River City Bikes management, we have decided to cancel the Saturday morning rides starting March 14, 2020 through April 12, 2020, and maybe beyond depending on Oregon’s health department requirements. This is in line with the COVID-19 guidelines of OBRA and the state of Oregon. River City Bikes, where our Saturday rides originate from, will update their website and I have updated our Meetup group events page.

This is not to say you should stop riding! Continuing to exercise is an excellent way to staying healthy. I ask you to stay safe and use caution. If you ride with others, please keep in mind ways you can mitigate close contact, in case:

  • Someone crashes, and needs help getting up, or needs medical attention
  • Someone bonks, and needs help getting stable
  • Someone might need a wheel, and you can’t really draft from 3-6 feet back
  • Two people crash into each other and need medical attention
