$50/person

Come celebrate Portland’s passion for clean water, biodiversity, sustainable transportation and community with a bike ride hosted by The Wetlands Conservancy and Pedal Bike Tours.  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.  May is National Wetlands Month and National Bike Month, two important loves of all Portlanders!

Smith and Bybee lakes are a hidden gem, nestled in the heart of North Portland’s industrial area.  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 Willametter River confluence.  We will ride together, stop for wildlife viewing and general good times and picnic at Kelley Point Park. 

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, Roll has helped get thousands of tourists and locals onto bikes to pedal the most bike-friendly large city in America.
