Please Note: This is ride is for women and those identifying as female.

The Ride: Timberline to Town -16 miles of downhill awesomeness.

This is a shuttle ride- please pay attention to specifics as shuttle is first come-first serve and will NOT wait. 

Shuttle Specifics: We will be taking the Mt. Hood Express Shuttle from Rhododendron to Timberline. This is first come first serve, so we will meet early and be ready to board when shuttle arrives. There will be others, so it's important to arrive early.

Shuttle Cost: Bring $2 cash. Cards are not accepted. 

Ride Leader: Leslie Copper Cell: 360-609-2111 Email: leslie.copper@gmail.com (two PP's, not two OO's). 

Skill Level: This ride is geared toward intermediate to advanced. Even though it's downhill, it's still pedally in places and a workout. A good level of fitness is needed. The trail is intermediate and somewhat technical in places. It has loose sand, roots and some loose rocky sections. 

No Drop: We will all have a ride buddy and stop at intersections to regroup. 

Time: Arrive at 7:55am, shuttle leaves at 8:24am. End time is when we get back to Rhododendron. Estimate: 2-3 hours

Details: Arrive with your mountain bike, pack, helmet ready to go. Please be sure you have an extra tube or tubes, tire levers and pump. I have seen quite a few flats on this trail.

Clothing: Come prepared for all weather conditions. Rain jacket, warm layer, knee/elbow pads. It can get cold descending and waiting at intersections. 

Water/Food: Please bring at least 2 L of water (no water along the trail) and snacks. 

Cancellation: We will plan to ride unless it's torrentially pouring rain or snowing. If we need to cancel it will be done by evening before ride.

Meeting Location: UPDATED: Meeting place is off of highway 26 at Dorman Center/Salmon Rd. by the Subway Shop. This is to assure we get shuttle space. We will ride back to here.
