Who’s ready for a trip to the Columbia River Gorge? Come join Cycle Wild in an intermediate trip to Eagle Creek, August 8-9.
We’ll meet Saturday morning and proceed on a super scenic ride no more than 40 miles, but with around 3,000 feet of climbing. No worries: we’ll take it slow and not leave anyone behind. The Historic Highway will keep us off I-84 and will provide excellent rest stops at Vista House and Multnomah Falls, both of which have restrooms and coffee/snacks for purchase.
Bring your hiking shoes, because once we get to the Eagle Creek campground we’ll be conveniently located for great hiking. We’ll also only be about 4 miles away from Cascade Locks, where there is not only a store and an ice cream shop, but Thunder Island Brewing Co. I know at least one of us plans to head there for dinner and brewskies.
Eagle Creek is a fairly high-traffic trailhead, so we recommend bringing a bike lock or at least all your crafty wiliness to disguise your valuables. Also, we have only one campsite reserved for all of us, so this trip is capped at 10 participants. We’ll be cozy, so please bring the smallest tent/hammock/whatever you sleep in that you can, or we can arrange a tent-share for you. Your trip leaders are Chris and Stasia, and you can email either one of us to ask about sleeping arrangements (or anything else).
There is no cost for this trip except for membership with Cycle Wild though we’d certainly appreciate a few dollars for shared firewood. Registration is required, as is being a Cycle Wild member, and we will send further details to registered participants as we get closer to the travel date. Please register here.
It’s going to be an awesome trip! Hope to see you then!
