MOVED TO SUNDAY THE 22ND! BOMB SHELTER RIDE Link
Clinton City Park, SE Woodward St and SE 57th Ave Take Trimet (meet at the Southeast corner of the park)
1:00pm
MOVED to SUNDAY the 22nd!
Weather looks peachy! Take a ride to the top of Kelly Butte to see the remains of the giant bomb shelter in operation there during the 1950s and 1960s. The facility became Portland's 911 Center after bomb shelters became obsolete, and later was abandoned. The entrances were totally sealed about 10 years ago, so we'll only be looking at the outside. The City of Portland has recently completed a new water storage facility atop Kelly Butte, so we'll also take a short walk (with bikes) along a trail leading to an overlook providing a view of that facility and the surrounding area. This ride is an 8.5 mile loop back to Clinton City Park and is flat except for the three blocks to the top of Kelly Butte.
