FEED THE ELK THEN FEED THE BIKE RIDERS Link
Jewell Meadows Wildlife Area , Jewell Oregon Take Trimet
9:00am
Come tour the Jewell Meadows Wildlife Area where we will deliver the daily winter hay feeding to a herd of elk at the refuge.  The elk are fed hay during the winter months to help keep them off adjacent farms where they damage fences and crops when natural feed becomes scarce.
We will ride the hay wagon to deliver the feed and hear about the elk management program from a refuge staff biologist.  
After the tour we will leave our cars at a nearby county park and ride to Astoria for lunch on the Riverwalk
This is a free event. More information at   http://www.meetup.com/Out-Spoke-n/

A ride celebrating the humble internally geared three speed bicycle. Once the ultimate in human-powered transportation, the three speed bicycle has been sidelined in recent years. Now let's give it a spotlight! Bring your trusty three speed or other internal hub gear bicycle.  (If you don't have one, it doesn't matter, just come! But if you had the choice between a high-performance crabon fibre racer and an old beater, bring the beater.) Casual paced ramble of approx. 10 miles, mostly flat with a hill or two. (No shame in walking it!) Bring-your-own tea and snack stop at a park en route.
