Natural Disasters Science Ride – Portland
June 30, 2016 from 5:15 pm - 7:15 pm
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

We’ll start underground and work our way up.
We’ll ride around town looking at the various things that could kill us and see examples of the things that would have killed us if we were around at the time. Stops and topics will include the volcanic history of the region, earthquakes, landslides, mega-floods, and maybe even some meteor impacts. The route generally goes downhill, but if you stick it out until the very end, you might wind up at the top of a high point. There are new and improved stops, so come on even if you’ve done it before.
