Don't even bother showing up; there will be no official RondePDX again this year. Instead, two invitational rides celebrating the conclusion of Belgian classics month will take place. Many will ride the traditional parcours at 10:00am the day before the 2013 Liege - Bastogne - Liege.
And a strong, enduring few will also
test themselves on a new eastern circuit the very
day of that hallowed event. The First Annual De Ronde Van Oost Portlandia aka The Tour of Happy
Valley will officially not be held starting at 10:00am from
Happy Valley City Hall. (http://ridewithgps.com/
You are invited to test yourself on the legendary RondePDX route any time. The lions are waiting to devour you.
It's just a ride:
No Prize but Honor
No Fee but Sweat
No Support but Lycra
No Sponsor but Yourself
No Rules but the Lawful kind
No Sanction but from the Madonna del Ghisallo
Watch for the Lion of Flanders to guide your way.
