Groups around Champoeg Park today

I was the guy on the red MTB today headed to Champoeg. I was going to take photos of my wife's 5k run. I passed what looked like 2 different groups. I have a road bike which is my usual ride but took the MTB out today. I have been looking for a local cycling group and would love to hook up with you guys. Hopefully one of you are on this forum!!

Jesse,

Check out pwtc.com - "Portland Wheelmen Touring Club" - especially the ride schedule link. Both groups you saw were Portland Wheelmen group rides: a "Reach the Beach" training ride of 75 miles from Champoeg; and a 45-miler from Charbonneau.

There's a 43-miler planned from Charbonneau this Saturday, an 85-miler on the 24th from Champoeg, the Monster Cookie Metric on the 25th from Salem to Champoeg (salembicycleclub.org), and a century the first Sat. of June out of Canby. They have a few rides out of Newberg as well - though it seems most of their rides are in the NE Portland/Vancouver area.

I wasn't out there this past Saturday, but I might do the Charbonneau ride this coming Saturday. Don't worry (at least for now) that you are not a member - just come check it out.

Thanks that is exactly what I was looking for. I have been looking at clubs in my area but have never come across that group. One rider had stopped due to a mechanical problem and I was going to cross the road and assist, and also ask who they were with but before I could a rider from he group pulled over and helped out. They were already getting back underway by the time I made it up to them.

Thanks again!
