    Check with the Community Exchange Cycle Tour club.... Sign up on Yahoo HERE .
    They do weekly rides, special events, a few overnighters, and a coast tour once a year.
    Today is a great day to ride!

    Very good. If you ever want to do a tour around Henry Hagg Lake... send me a message.

    Do check Community Cycle Exchange. They do both begginner and intermediate rides. It be great to have a few more recumbents in the group. Very friendly folk. Most rides start from the downtown Portland.

    Also check out OHPV... they do regular rides from I205 to Troutdale or East side Vancouver.

    They are a group made up of LWB and vaious hi-racers.

    Not sure what distances you're into, but there is also SLug Velo
    http://www.slugvelo.com/

    Never rode with them other than the Rites of Spring ride.
    Today is a great day to ride!

    My usual weekend ride is 20-30 miles up and down the 205 and springwater. I have seen a few 'bents, but not many. I have never been to Hagg lake. Sounds like it would be a good ride. Does it have a path all the way around it?

    Henry Hagg Lake has a good shoulder all around except for one bridge. The lake is 11 miles around, from Hillsboro, it is a 37 mile trek. The entire route has bike lanes or wide shoulders.
    Today is a great day to ride!
