BIKE THE LEVEES
Sunday October 09, 10:00am – 1:00pm
Bring your bike and your friends for a tour of Portland’s levee system! The Multnomah County Drainage Districts and the Columbia Slough Watershed Council will lead this 15-mile trip on easy terrain. We’ll be on a mix of dedicated pedestrian path, bike lanes and short distances of shoulder riding. A portion of this ride will be on the scenic Columbia Slough Trail. Learn about functionality and history of Portland’s levee system which protects people and properties from flooding the work being done to ensure that the levee system meets modern standards for public safety.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn about Levee Ready Columbia, a collaboration of government, business, and neighborhood organizations working together to evaluate the condition of our local levee network and to ensure valuable regional resources are protected in the future. Riders will explore how the levees are managed for the balance of safety, recreation, and restoration. Pre-registration required (click on “Register for This Event” below or call 503-281-1132).
