Loving Oregon Summer: Helvetia Bike Ride Field Trip

Saturday, June 28, 11:30am-2:30pm

Meet at Orenco Station MAX Station, NW 231st and NE Alder Street, Hillsboro

Hailed as one of Oregon's irreplaceable high-value farming areas, Helvetia is also mighty scenic. Farmers and advocates there have repeatedly engaged in the land use process to protect prime soils from from attempted conversions to landfills, freeways, and subdivisions. Join us as we ride by scenic farmland, transit-oriented development, and explore the edge of the Urban Growth Boundary! 

The ride will include a 15-mile loop through Helvetia, including a stop at the Helvetia Tavern. Bring money for beer (and if you want a burger, they are delicious and legendary).
