Event Details

Riding to quiet country roads and spectacular scenery is easier than you think. The Columbia River Gorge is just a short bicycle ride away. And you can totally handle it if you are an everyday rider.

We will meet at a MAX light rail station to be determined (but it will be on the Blue Line in Gresham.) From there, we'll ride along the Historic Columbia Highway (HCRH), taking up sights like Women's Forum, Crown Point, Latourell Falls, and Multnomah Falls. We'll then head back towards town, offering folks an opportunity to get back on Trimet. We should get back in time for folks to participate in night rides if they want.

Ride will be about 40 miles round-trip (longer if people want it.) This is an intermediate level riding event meaning you should be able to keep a moderate pace and ride the distance, but by no means do you need to be a "roadie"! The HCRH has a long, steady grade up to Women's Forum, and a shorter, steeper grade from Women's Forum to Latourell Falls. No drop ride, so no one left behind. Geared bikes recommended. 

There will be a few spots to refuel, whether water or food, and we'll have an official picnic lunch stop. It's still wise to bring some snacks/food, especially if you have any dietary needs/restrictions.

More details will be emailed to registered participants.

Day Ride (no camping): You will ride as far as Multnomah Falls and head back. There may be no official guide to ride back with you, so you should be comfortable doing that on your own. Don't worry, we'll give diretions.

Camping Ride: Some of us will ride the four miles beyond Multnomah Falls to Ainsworth State Park to camp for the night. Ainsworth has hiker/biker sites, which cost $5 per person. Ainsworth has bathrooms with flush toilets, sinks, and showers. Drinking water and firewood available in campground.

This ride is part of Pedalpalooza, Portland's annual festival of all things bike fun. Pedalpalooza has happened every June since 2004.
