2009 De Ronde van Oeste Portlandia

Good times were had on the 2009 De Ronde van Oeste Portlandia, the weather was perfect and a bunch of Bike Vigilantes showed up to roll the devastating course. I quote "How tough were the climbs? One of them, on Brynwood Street, has a pitch of 24-28%, an incline that forced all but the toughest riders to get off and walk." The 48mile ride was a killer, even the last few miles were climbs that you did not want to see at mile 46! I'm pretty sure there were more than a few that had sore muscles the next day. Some good coverage here by Bike Portland and a ton of pictures by Dave Roth

Nick and Amy were host to the soon-to-be fabled PBR rest stop, sponsored by Pixie Project.

Dave C, Dylan V, Chris S, Tony O, Joe P, Chuck K, Erin B, Jeff N, Darrin S, Charlie W, Mark R, Khari G, Brent B, Erin B and Nick G.

Well then, who let these out for the day? does they have a permit? did they steal the kit from a normal vigilante rider. Please post more sensible pics. cheers James

Hey, I took that second picture. Lots more of the Vigilantes and lots of other suffering cyclists on my site:

I think that second picture can be found in the "Fairview and Lafayette" album.
