Cycle Wild is attending an upcoming workshop on bicycle touring for East Multnomah County, and we’d love your opinion!

The Columbia Gorge as viewed from Women’s Forum.

The Gresham Area Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with Travel Oregon is hosting a “studio workshop” regarding bicycle touring in the eastside of Multnomah County. This area is the gateway to the beautiful Columbia River Gorge and they are looking at ways to make it even better! And they’ve asked Cycle Wild to attend.

The two public workshops will be on Wednesday November 13 (seven hours) at Troutale’s Edgefield McMenamins (this is the one I’ll be attending) and on Thursday November 14 ( four hours) at the Corbett Fire House. Can’t attend but have ideas and opinions about riding in east Multnomah County? Feel free to let us know. Either comment on this post of email me at shawn.granton@cyclewild.org

  1. Is the staircase at Eagle Creek on the Historic Columbia River State Trail within Multnomah County? If so, this should be a priority.

    In the words of Terry Richard of OregonLive on Nov 1, 2013:

    “Cyclists with two wheels can push their bikes up and down the staircase by using a groove alongside the steps for their wheels. Cyclists who are heavily burdened for touring may have trouble negotiating the stairs. People riding three-wheeled cycles need to carry them, while mobility challenged cyclists may not be able to negotiate the staircase at all.”

    1. Hey Nick, I forget if “The Staircase” is in Hood River or Multnomah County. I believe it is in Multnomah but still very close to the line. In any case, I’ll be sure to mention it…and I’m sure it will be mentioned regardless!
