When: Saturday, August 27, 7:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Where: Papa’s Pizza Parlor located at 15700 NW Blueridge Dr., Beaverton OR 97006
This is a beautiful fundraising bicycle tour starting from Papa’s Pizza Parlor (near Terpenning Recreation Complex) to Stub Stewart State Park in Buxton, with an option to explore Vernonia and return. This scenic, moderately challenging 86-mile and 64-mile bike tour explores beautiful farmlands as you wind through the country roads of North Plains and work your way toward the paved Banks-Vernonia State Trail in Banks, which is rider-friendly to both road and mountain bikes. A 32-mile option is included as you arrive at the first of two rest stops (16 miles), where you will receive snacks and refreshments in North Plains and at the St. Francis Assisi School nestled against vast fields of farmland in Roy, Oregon.
