Cycle the well field 2017

What People Are Saying:

“This was a fun and informative tour. The presenters are clearly experts at what they do. I appreciated how they made sure all the cyclist were safe at crossing and we remained together. Saw parts of Portland/Troutdale, I never knew about and I've been here for 30 years!”
