Small Museums by Bike – Explore Hillsboro

Yes we are going to Rock n Roll on this exploration into the unknown depths of Hillsboro and Oregon’s geology. I say “exploration” because even I have not ventured where we will go – but hey we’ve got maps, we are taking the MAX most the way to and fro, and we will have a resident zoobomb geology professor with us on our journey. I doubt this will turn into the 24-hour sushi ride of Pedalpalooza – but who knows if we will come back the same as we left?!
Miles – not sure – but MAX will take many miles away from us (and hills!)
Length: Half day adventure!
Note: If you’ve never taken your bike on the MAX, no worries, we’ll teach you how

The details: We are visiting the Rice NW Museum of Rocks & Minerals (Bring $5 for admission). We’ll take the MAX train from Chinatown to Hillsboro, ride to the museum and back to MAX with a detour in downtown Hillsboro where we will hunt down the famous A & W family sculptures! Eat a late breakfast or early lite lunch, and bring a picnic item to share – we will picnic at the Museum’s grounds once we arrive.

Cost: $5 Museum admission/ plus $2 for each way on MAX (Total $9), Bring picnic lunch item to share.
