Take a Ride on the Stormwater Cycling Tour

0 Comments

This Saturday, join staff from Portland’s Bureau of Transportation and Bureau of Environmental Services for a tour of green streets and other innovative stormwater designs that help protect our watersheds and enhance the beauty and safety of our streets for folks on foot or bike.

Great for folks new to the bike or new to the area, the ride will be an easy-paced loop, with stops along the way and returning to the start location.  The route will occur on low-traffic streets and neighborhood greenways, with some off-street paths.  A few sections will be on streets with bike lanes.  The ride is free, but helmets are required.  Kids under 16 welcome if accompanied by an adult.

The ride is part of the Portland By Cycle series of rides and classes. Click here to see the full schedule. Find your way to the ride by bike or transit with Trimet's multi-modal trip planner.

Stormwater Cycling Tour

Saturday, November 22, 9:45 AM – 12:30 p.m.

Meeting location: Crema, SE Ankeny St and 28th Ave

Over one-third of Portland’s 2,500 miles of sewer pipes are more than 80 years old.  Portland combines sewer improvements that replace or repair Portland’s aging sewer pipes with green streets, ecoroofs, trees and other green infrastructure to increase sewer system efficiency, and protect water quality, public health, and the environment.  Green infrastructure keeps stormwater out of the sewer system, filters pollutants, provides habitat and increases neighborhood green space for healthier watersheds.
