The Tryon Creek Watershed Council is sponsoring a Restoration Site Bike Ride as part of Portland’s Pedalpalooza on Saturday, June 14. For more information, including the route, and to sign up for the ride, go to the Watershed Council's website here.
Checking out our watershed by bicycle is a great way to viscerally experience the subwatersheds, the importance of trees, and the difference between urbanized upper watershed and lower watershed parks. We will bike between several restoration sites to showcase some of the restoration work being done in the Tryon Watershed. This year we will visit sites on 4th Avenue (including an art open house with a sculpture garden adjoining the park and restoration site,) the major fish passage barrier at highway 43, an older restoration site on Nettle Creek, and others to be determined.
June 14, 12:30-4:30 p.m.
Meet at Riverdale High School in the parking lot.
Bring water, your bike, helmet, and weather-appropriate layers.
It is very important that you fill the air in your tires fully and check your bike out for any issues such as uncooperative gears or dragging breaks before the ride. This ride will have some hills that will be difficult if you or your bike are in bad shape. That said, we’ll wait for everyone and it will be a fun rather than fast ride.
