Let’s explore this gorgeous local treasure together! Come with us on a 3-day, 2-night trip along both sides of the Columbia River.
Friday we’ll ride eastbound on the Washington side – 60 miles with about 3800′ of elevation gain. We’ll stay in the beautiful Home Valley campground, very near the Columbia River Gorge. We’ll also be very near Stevenson, Washington, with Walking Man Brewing and other restaurants. Saturday we ride over the Bridge of the Gods, into Cascade Locks and then east to Viento State Park – 34 miles with 6000′ of climbing. Sunday we’ll ride back to Portland (or the MAX in Gresham) along the Historic Columbia River Highway for 67 miles (or 56 to the MAX).
This is an intermediate rated trip due to the distance on days 1 and 3, and the amount of climbing on day 2. There will be lots of places to eat and/or buy groceries along the way.
The estimated cost for camping and firewood both nights is $20. (Extra money can be refunded to campers at the end of the trip, or contributed to the campsite reservation fund.) Our start location will be e-mailed to folks who register via Eventbrite. If you are unable to payonline using PayPal, please contact the leaders and we’ll figure something out.
A final note: Cycle Wild discourages the use of personal automobiles for all our trips. This is especially true since we will be staying in a hiker/biker site, and we should respect that campsite’s intended use for people arriving by bike or foot. Please help us respect this use and our purpose by riding/taking public transit for this and all our trips.
