Portland By Cycle to Tour Stormwater Gardens and Bioswales this Weekend


Join Bureau of Transportation and Environmental Services staff on a FREE tour of street features that increase safety for travelers and decrease the load on our sewer system – plus see a beautiful stormwater garden. We've done these tours in the summer for several years - now, with any luck,  we'll get to see the swales in action!

Stormwater Gardens and Swales, Oh My! Bike Tour

Saturday, November 17, 2012

10:00 AM to 12:30 PM

Meet at the Hawthorne Hostel, SE Hawthorne Blvd & 31st


The ride will span a total of 8 miles. No pre-registration needed but helmets are required. Special for this ride: 1) staff from the Bureau of Environmental Services along to explain all the things we're seeing;  2)  at the end of the ride there's an optional tour of the Hostel's Eco-Roof.

Portland By Cycle Rides offer a supportive setting for adults new to cycling, new to the area, or just getting back on the bike. Easy pace, no one left behind. The Autumn Series rides help you enjoy riding in all weather.  Get that great “I just rode my bike” feeling year-round!  We’ll ride rain or shine – always with smiles for our umbrellas!
