Looking for Milwaukie, Oregon riders

I just started riding a bent this year and love it. I am wondering if there are any bent riders in the Milwaukie, Oregon area. I need to get out on the weekends more, but get tired of riding alone. I ride a Sun EZ Sport. Not fast, but I can ride all day.

Not sure about Milwaukie riding clubs but I know of two great clubs in Portland that have weekly rides. One is OHPV [ http://ohpv.org/ ] who does a weekly ride out of I205 (and many other events) and also Exchange Cycle Touring Club [ http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ExchangeCycleTours/ ] (need to be a Yahoo member) who have weekly rides out of downtown Portland. I ride my trike with both of these groups and they are all wonderful people.

I went to the OHPV web site and couldn't figure out how to navigate it. I kept going round in circles. Maybe it's just me.

Seems they have updated the calendar and things aren't quite as clear. I just joined their Yahoo group (you have to request membership) from the calendar page http://ohpv.org/calendar.htm in the "ONGOING" section.

Check the Bacchetta Forums, and OHPV like others have said. Lots of Bacchetta guys in Portland, also check with Coventry Cycle Works, I'm pretty sure they're the largest recumbent dealer in that area. Anyway, post up on Bacchetta's site, you'll get responses.

I'm almost a hit. I live right by Oregon, Wisconsin, which isn't far from Milwaukee.
