Put your pedals to the pavement with the Clackamas River Basin Council! On July 7th at 9 a.m., the CRBC will be hosting the first annual Tour de Clack bicycle ride. Riders will convene at Clackamette Park in Oregon City prior to departing for a 30-mile loop through the watershed.
The route will feature numerous stops and opportunities for riders to learn more about the work of the CRBC and partners, and how everyone can contribute to a healthier watershed. Projects featured along the tour include streamside planting, fish passage barrier removal, habitat improvements such as large woody debris, and current efforts to keep the Clackamas clean. The route also features beautiful rural scenery and several views of the Clackamas and its tributaries.
The event is free for all participants!
Interested individuals can visit the CRBC website at http://clackamasriver.org/community/tour-de-clack for more information and a link to registration. Tour de Clack attendees should wear a helmet and bring a snack or lunch to enjoy at a “rest stop” mid-way through the route. Riders will follow the Leave No Trace ethic, and remove any items they may bring with them. Riders without helmets will not be permitted, nor will riders under the age of 16.
The Tour de Clack is funded by a grant from the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board.
The Clackamas River Basin Council is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with the mission of fostering partnerships for clean water and to improve fish and wildlife habitat and the quality of life for those who live, work and recreate in the watershed.
