Description

Green street swaleA tour of innovative street designs that make our city green and keep our rivers clean.  We may not see any rain, but we'll see raingardens, bioswales, ecoroofs, and other designs that help Portland manage our wealth of precipitation.

 

Great for folks new to the bike or new to the area, the ride will be easy-paced, with stops along the way.  Route will be mostly 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.

Part of the Portland By Cycle series of rides and classes.   Click to see the full schedule.
