Itinerary

Diese Gebiet wird von den schneebedeckten Gipfeln des Mount Hood und Mount Adam dominiert.
Trotz dieser beeindruckenden alpinen Landschaft radeln Sie durch üppig bewachsene Weinfelder, vorbei an weiten Weizenfeldern und idyllischen Obstplantagen.
Die Reise endet in der spektakulären Columbia River Schlucht, die Heimat prächtiger Wasserfälle und dichter Wälder ist.
Sie übernachten in kleinen Städtchen wie Hood River, einem wunderschönen Fleckchen Erde. Als weitere Aktivitäten stehen Wandern, Windsurfen und Wildwasser-Schlauchboot-Fahrten zur Wahl.

Day 1

39mi/62km
The tour starts in Estacada. If you want to cycle at least 40 miles you’ll ride along back roads climbing steadily past open farmland to the town of Sandy. You head west from Sandy on quiet lanes through Little Switzerland. Much of the riding is through conifer and mixed-wood forests. Through the gaps in the trees you’ll see tantalizing glimpses of a snow-capped Mt Hood. You stay overnight in the small community of Welches.

Day 2

30mi/48km or 65mi/104km
For a good intermediate ride, you’ll start at Government Camp, on the western side of Mt Hood, Camp and work your way around the back of this iconic mountain. This ride includes a steady climb up to Bennett Pass – the trip’s highest point. Your reward is up-close views of the Mt Hood snowline. You’ll finish your ride in the folds of the Hood River Valley known for growing apples, pears, cherries, peaches and other fruits. You stay overnight in the town of Hood River.

Day 3

You can ride out of Hood River for several days and still not have discovered all the great routes this area has to offer. Today’s must-ride route is on the Historic Columbia River Highway (HCRH) – a Historic Landmark. A third of the HCRH is closed to traffic other than bikes and has been described by Bicycling Magazine as one of the greatest rides in US. Your route heads east along the Columbia River Gorge and has stunning views at every turn as the road twice climbs high above the gorge before descending back down to the river. You can also opt for water activity instead of a day of biking.

Day 4

Ride one the many loops out of Hood River before taking an afternoon van transfer on to Stevenson. In Stevenson you’ll find plenty of lunch stops. This small river-front town has some
interesting antique stores, an art gallery, a pub and nice café.

Day 5

This is another day of choices. Broadly, you can choose to do more biking, do other activities or do almost nothing. If you choose to ride, you can either take it easy or head for the hills.
The relaxed riding option is on the Historic Columbia River Highway (HCRH) bike path. If you’re looking for something more challenging, you’ll head up the Wind River. You climb steadily with the river through dense forests “enjoying” a long, twisting ascent up onto the ridge of the Cascade Mountains. If resting sounds more appealing, the Lodge in Stevenson has swimming pools and spa facilities to help you relax.

Day 6

You return to Oregon for this final part of your Columbia River tour. The theme of today is waterfalls – too many to count. Topping the bill is Multnomah Falls. You’ll also pass by several state parks. After the bike path section, the Historic Columbia River Highway heads up away from the river and becomes a beautiful twisting lane. Your ride ends in Troutdale where your guide will be waiting for you – with your luggage – ready to transfer you back to Portland. Alternatively, you could choose to ride further into Portland along bike paths and cycle-ways that take you into the heart of the City. As with all aspects of this trip – it’s your choice!
