Tour de Clack
THANK YOU to the 133 riders and 28 volunteers that participated in our second annual Tour de Clack restoration-themed bicycle ride on June 30th. Keep those tires pumped for June 2014!
Put your pedals to the pavement with the Clackamas River Basin Council!
On June 30th at 9:00 a.m., we'll be hosting the second annual free Tour de Clack restoration-themed bicycle ride. Riders will convene at the Riverside Day Use Area at Milo McIver Park in Estacada, and depart on either a 30- or 50-mile loop through the watershed.
The 30-mile loop features three stops, including:
- An installed bioswale at the Estacada Library
- A site on Eagle Creek near Bonnie Lure Park planted with native trees and shrubs as part of CRBC's Shade Our Streams project
- A fish habitat restoration project on Mattoon Road that features large woody debris, tree planting, and fish passage barrier removal
The 50-mile loop includes the first two stops on the 30-mile loop, as well as:
- An engineered riffle and bridge replacement at Porter Road
- A stop at Faraday Lake
The 50-mile loop will also make use of the PGE multi-use path along the Clackamas River.
Participants can expect to see beautiful views of the upper Clackamas watershed, learn about the projects of CRBC, and have a great time!
Attendees should wear a helmet and bring a water bottle for refilling along the route. Water and snacks will be available at all stops, and the route also includes stores where items can be purchased. Riders must be age 15 and up.
Please note that though the ride is offered free of charge, we ask participants to support our hosts at Milo McIver State Park by paying the $5 entry fee.
The Tour de Clack is funded by a grant from the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board.
