Bike tour to showcase restoration and watershed projects

by: SUBMITTED PHOTO - Friends of Tryon Creek State Natural Area will host a bike tour of Tryon Creeks watershed and restoration projects on June 22.

The Friends of Tryon Creek State Natural Area will host a free Pedalpalooza Ride on June 22.

The public is invited to bike a route following the course of the Tryon Creek watershed with stops at restoration sites throughout the ride.

“The bike-powered restoration site tour will be seven miles long and involve around an hour of bicycling,” said Matthew Collins, interim executive director and education director for Friends of Tryon Creek. “We will stop at around six sites to view new and completed restoration projects. The route will involve some hills. The route does involve a section of Taylors Ferry Road and Boones Ferry Road that has a narrow shoulder. We will supply some safety vests, and helmets are required for this ride.”

Those interested in taking the tour should meet at the parking lot of Riverdale High School, 9727 SW Terwilliger Blvd. in Portland, prior to 2 p.m. June 22. The tour will run from 2 to 4 p.m.

Collins said this tour is best for adults and requested that participants pre-register online at
