Wetlands Ride & Picnic (Portland)
May 22, 2016 from 10:00 am - 2:00 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.

Did you know that there is a 2,000-acre wetland in North Portland? Smith and Bybee wetland offers some of the best wildlife viewing in the Portland area, and we want to take you there. This large network of sloughs and lakes is home to beaver, river otters, black tailed deer and osprey. Spend the day with us as we ride, discuss, and discover the beauties of urban wetlands and the Columbia and Willamette rivers’ confluence.
Todd Roll, founder of Pedal Bike Tours, will be our guide for this trip. Our route will be based on one of the rides in his book “Pedal Portland, 25 Great Rides for Exploring the City by Bike.” Through Pedal Bike Tours, Todd has helped get thousands of tourists and locals onto bikes to pedal the most bike-friendly large city in America.
