Return to Kamiah/Portland group(s)

it's six weeks and counting for the Return to Kamiah Ride (see Tri-Cities if you're unfamiliar)...anyone leaving from Portland can coordinate here...I've gotten reservations for both Friday and Saturday nights and will be leaving Portland on Thursday afternoon..with variable plans to stay in Hermiston (we did that last year) or Kennewick that night...
Who's going?

I'm not in your neck of the woods, but in the same boat. I'm waiting for some more details of the main ride, i.e. KSU? If it's early I'll probably head over the night before, but it's like Noon, I might just get my lazy ass up in the morning ad head over 12 in the morning.

There are a couple different KSUs honestly, cause people are coming from all over. The main ride though meets in Kennewick and KSU was 9 am Saturday last year. But it looks like there are different days for kick off, and its actually starting Friday this year.

generally speaking, the last group to leave Kennewick is KSU around 0900 - 0930. maybe as late at 1000, but that's pushing it.

no problem! If you're in need of a place to crash in the tri-cities, post up in the main thread. Many folks are willing to open their homes to fellow riders from out of town!

In past years my group has always left the Starbucks parking lot at 10:00AM to avoid the cold morning temperatures. Pete's group usually tries to leave around 9:00AM because they take the great circle route to get to Kamiah. Should be the same this year except I will be leaving on Friday, Pete is leaving on Saturday.

OK tentative update:


PDX group meeting at Cascade Station on Thursday 4/28, time TBD, and heading across the river to 14 to head east, hitting some twisties and ending up in Kennewick, WA to stay the night at various locations in town.

Man, if i were coming up from portland, there's no way I'd miss cougar - carson

Also, I have not ridden 141 - BZ, but I have ridden 142 and it's a neat road.

Also, watch for decreasing radius corners on this bit. They've about kicked my ass on a couple occasions
