Event Description: THE GORGE RIDE | June 11 – The Dalles
Get lost in time as you participate in the fifth annual Gorge Ride, a celebration of the “King of Roads” – the Historic Columbia River Highway (HCRH). Pedal from the Gorge Discovery Center in The Dalles, along America’s first scenic highway and the HCRH State Trail to the Senator Mark O. Hatfield West Trailhead near Hood River. This out-and-back 38.5 mile ride with world-class scenery is a fundraising event whose proceeds go toward restoring & reconnecting the Historic Columbia River Highway and State Trail from The Dalles to Troutdale by its 100th Birthday … June 7, 2016.. The route is a gorgeous, quiet combination of historic highway that is open to motor vehicles and a paved state trail that is open only to hikers and cyclists.
Along the way you will enjoy breathtaking views of the Columbia Gorge from Rowena Crest and you’ll ride through the remarkable restored Mosier Twin Tunnels. Riders will be rewarded with a rest stop break on the impressive grounds of the historic Mayerdale Estate.
