Mt. Hood Express bus service

We have always encouraged carpooling from Sandy, and that is still an option. But, now you can take the new Mt. Hood Express bus instead. For only $2 (or just $1.50 if you prepay for 20 tickets), you can ride the bus from Sandy to Skibowl, Government Camp, or Timberline. Catch the bus right on Hwy. 26, at a park and ride bus stop half way between Champion Way and 362nd (which is the Fred Meyer traffic light in Sandy). Turn into Champion Way to park at the Information Center.  The most convenient bus starts at 7:45 am and arrives at Skibowl at 8:32 and at Timberline at 9 am. Click here for the complete schedule.

 

Also note that Timberline runs its own shuttle between Government Camp from  the Summit Pass ski area to Timberline.

 

Powder Alliance.  Unlimited skiing at Timberline and Mt. Hood Skibowl + 3 free tickets at each of 17 other ski areas, for a total of 51 free ski days
Not valid on Saturdays.
Those 71 and over pay only $50.
All prices will increase after Nov. 5 and 26.. See more at: www.powderalliance.com  and on the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/powderalliance

Our club provides numerous activities in the following categories.  Most of them have their own separate pages on our web site:

 

a)  Day trips to Mt. Hood ski areas  (both weekend and mid-week) – currently on the TRIPS page..

b)  Ski trips to other ski areas in the West  -- see TRIPS page.

c)  Recreational racing – RACING pages.

d)  Social events, parties, etc. – on the HOME page.

e)  Summer activities (Biking, Hiking, Rafting, Picnic, etc.) – usually on our HOME page.

 

Our Home page is mainly a calendar of events and a place to post social events that don't have their own separate pages, such as Trips and Racing events do.

Each season, we start to build a new Photos page, so if you are checking us out at the beginning of the season, check out one of the previous year's Photos page, which will be more complete.

Trillium lake
 
Trillium lake 2
 
Bike riding on a gravel road
 
Mt. High bike ride
Timberline - Trillium Lake - Rhododendron

September 10 (Saturday)  - 9 am.
Meet in Rhododendron, the last town before Government Camp. Meet on the right side of the highway at the place where the Mt. Hood Express bus stops.  There is space for parking some cars there.  Most of us will continue driving our own cars and bikes to Timberline, but we'll need to leave a few cars in Rhododendron.

This ride will be mostly downhill, except for about a mile immediately after Trillium Lake.  A mountain bike is recommended because there will be long stretches of gravel road.  A commuter bike with regular tires is OK too.  Just don't bring a racing road bike with those super-thin tires.

Here's the plan:
1.  Timberline to Govy.  We'll follow the paved West Leg Road to Government Camp.  NOTE that we had previously announced an option to go down the Timberline-to-Town mountain bike trail, but we have decided it was too rocky, bumpy, and dangerous. There has been too much erosion over the years. Some of our members had gotten injured in previous years. So, it was decided to skip it this time.
 
2.  Stop at Huckleberry Inn for rest and refreshment. Maybe  a huckleberry lemonade or a milkshake?  This is a convenient place to regroup, since one of the above two groups will arrive in Govy before the other and will then have to wait here for the other group to arrive.
 
3.  Govy to Trillium Lake.  We might split into two groups here too:
     a)  One group following the Barlow Road wagon trail (rocky).
     b)  The other group following a paved road and then some gravel
 
4.  Still Creek Road from Trillium Lake to Rhododendron.
     About a mile of uphill on a gravel road from Trillium Lake.
     Then several miles of easy coasting downhill on Still Creek Road
 
At the end of the ride, someone will stay in Rhododendron guarding all our bikes while those who left their cars in Rhododendron will help transport the drivers of the other cars back up to Timberline.
 
Bring some water or other refreshing beverage.
Bring some extra clothing and gloves in case it's a cold day. Still Creek Road might be mostly in the shade.
 
Finally, we'll end the day's adventure with a visit to Chicali Cantina in Welches.  They offer "seriously good food and epic margaritas".

This ride organized by John Davis and Emilio Trampuz. Let us know if you are coming. Contact Emilio at: Emilio2000@earthlink.net or 503-510-1477

Mt. High bike ride
North Portland Loop
Kenton Park to Kelley Point

September 24 (Saturday)  - 10 am.
Kelley Point is where the Willamette River flows into the Columbia.
The ride is about 18 miles. It’s almost completely flat.It goes by Smith Lake. There is wildlife to be seen, such as egrets or herons.

And, best of all, it’s a loop, so there is no need for any car shuttling.

We'll meet at the North-East corner of Kenton Park (upper right on a map).  Kenton Park doesn't have a parking lot, so park anywhere on the street, get your bike ready, and let's meet in the NE corner of the park.

NOTE: The left side of the loop as shown on the map goes through some busy streets, and on one of them there is no bike lane.  So, we will change our route and ride mainly on a paved bike path.
 
After the bike ride, we'll socialize over some food and drinks, either at the Kenton Station Restaurant & Pub, or at the Casa Maya MExican restaurant right across the street from each other.

This ride organized by John Davis and Emilio Trampuz. Let us know if you are coming. Contact Emilio at: Emilio2000@earthlink.net or 503-510-1477.

Meet at Kenton Park (North-East corner) at 10 am.  That's at the corner of Brandon and Argyle.
