Since the 4th of July weekend trip was cancelled, we were looking for a different trip in July to fill the gap, and decided to do a “First-timers” trip to Champoeg State Park. So, if you’ve never camped by bike before, and would like to, come join us on a trip to Champoeg near Newburg! We’ll be taking this trip from the end of the MAX line in Hillsboro, so the route we have planned has no major hills, and follows mostly pleasant farmland, orchards and vineyards. If there is interest, we may stop along the way for a wine tasting.
If you’re an experienced bike camper, we’d still like to have you along to help welcome people who’ve never been out with us. Come enjoy a beautiful ride and a night talking by the fire. Trip details will be posted later this week, but we’ll likely be meeting in Hillsboro at 10am and riding at 10:30.
Note that Trimet’s official policy is no trailers, and no bikes which block the aisles or doors (e.g. tandems, some Xtracycles). Not all MAX operators adhere strictly to policy, so you might get lucky – or you might get booted out by a fare inspector or Trimet supervisor.
