The Sellwood Sprint

By Hannah on October 27th, 2010

How do you spice up your lunch hour?  How about with a little sweat!   I have a new course to add to the list of Urban PR Challenges.  This is a flat fast course.  So get those horses ready to dodge some Rollerbladers and recumbent bikes, giddy up! 

COURSE: Start-gate just past OMSI.  End- intersection of Springwatter corridor and the road into oaksbottom park (right before the Sellwood Bridge).

GOAL: Ride as hard as you can sprinting from gate to gate. 

LAPS:Must ride down and back because inevitably there will be wind  in one direction.  You can have up to 5 min rest between sprints, even though the con crosso ma-ch-ine only needed 3:30 today. 

-Riding South (slight tail wind) 8:38:77

-Riding North (slight head wind) 8:52:01

Best of luck at all your personal records,
