DONUT RIDE

9:04 AM Year-round [MAP]             Details: Click  Rides - Donut Ride

This ride provides opportunities for a wide spectrum of riders.  It consists of three rides:

  1. The Leisure Ride goes to Brown’s Bakery at NW 10th and Walker, an 11 mile round trip. It is designed for entry-level or family riders.  The ride leader adjusts the group speed to that of the slowest rider.  A scenic route is used but is adjusted to fit the abilities of the riders.
  2. The Brown’s Ride also goes to Brown’s Bakery but at a faster pace than the Leisure Ride. A companion may be assigned to show the route to a first time rider.
  3. The Kamp’s Ride goes to Kamp’s 1910 Café at 10 NE 10th. There is an opportunity to eat breakfast. The ride then divides into a variety of longer rides.  It is designed for riders above entry-level.  The ride leader assigns companions to help show the route to first time riders.
