Saturday, Sept. 7th - SFRC Season Opener!

Itís not just the date thatís reversed! This year the Sang-Froid Riding Club's "Season Opener" leaves from way down south ... Springfield, Oregon, to be exact. On Saturday, September 7th, you'll ride NORTH with us all day on great roads, leaving Gray Area KTM in Springfield at 9 a.m. that morning. It'll be a full day of riding; expect to return to Portland towards dusk.

We appreciate it's a long way to go to the ride start, but trust us, it'll be worth it! Bite the bullet and come ride ... there's plenty of time the weekend after to study for that exam / clean the gutters / punch the clown / etc. These roads are worth the trip down!

A couple options to consider:
1. Spend Friday night down south: book a room in the Springfield / Eugene area. That'll put you in good shape for the morning of the 7th. An InterWeb search gives you plenty of options, or pick up the phone and call some friends.
2. Camp for free in Eugene! A friend of the club has generously offered free camping on his property. Lots of land, river for swimming, BBQ for grilling etc. ... you can even leave your camping gear there and he'll bring it up to Portland that next week. How cool is that? (If you want to camp please drop a line ASAP to so we can send you details and maintain a headcount for our host.)
3. Leave Portland real early -- ~7:00 a.m. -- and beeline it on I-5 to meet us at the start. It's about 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hours, but will fly by.

Gray Area KTM (700 Q St, Springfield, OR 97477) is opening their doors at about 8:15 a.m. to host the ride start. We'll have coffee and donuts there for you. Brief rider's meeting a few minutes before 9 a.m., and we'll roll out immediately after.

Looking forward to riding with you!!
