Mettle Sunrise 2 - Solar Boogaloo

We rolled right on time and hit the checkpoints when we should. A few flats, but hey... actually feeling rewarded for waking up at 2:30am is rare and this is one of those rare events, we think. Thanks to all those riders that came out to make this year's ride even better. The good vibes were all we could have hoped for and more.

Steal as many photos as you want and give some credit to us on IG, @mettlecycling!

Info on how it all unfolded.


Starting along Fremont and 15th (NE) at 3:30am, we’ll gather riders along the route to meet where the I-205 bike path intersects with Marine Drive. That should be 4am. From there, it’s about 1:10 to Vista house and the sunrising at 5:22 am.

Wednesday 6/21

Last year we made back into Portland proper by 7:30am (without any mechanicals or flats).

Here’s last year’s ride and pace:
