Time to tune up your bike and get ready for a weekend of cycling along the lovely lower Deschutes River. We will head out to the confluence of the Deschutes and the Columbia where we will hop on our bikes and cruise up the river on an old railroad grade. We will pass old railroad cars and barns, winding through the rolling golden hills to find our campsite. After a delicious dinner the river will lull us to sleep.

Sunday we will wake up to explore the hills and river around our campsite, before biking back to the mouth of the river and driving home.

 
This trip is open to Middle School students. Students should be in good physical condition. Students will need to provide their own bikes and helmets (required). The Outdoor Program has a few bikes to lend out—email Olivia to request one. Bikes can also be rented at a number of stores in Portland. We will need to carry their own gear in panniers and trailers.
 
Cost: $50
