Gorge Ride

August 28 at 7:00 am

Friends of the Historic Columbia River Highway announce that advanced registration will close on August 23, for the annual fundraising Gorge Ride to be held on August 28, 2021. We will follow all Oregon COVID-19 directions in place at that time and will take measures to ensure the health and safety of riders and volunteers at registration and at both rest stops. Registration is through www.gorgeride.eventbrite.com. For more information visit www.GorgeRide.com. Day-of-event registration available for an additional $10/person.

We are seeking additional volunteers. People who volunteer for registration or parking can ride for free after completing their shift at 10 AM. Also looking for volunteers at Mosier and Senator Mark O. Hatfield West Trailhead.

Bicyclists will again ride on the Historic Columbia River Highway from the Gorge Discovery Center to the Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail in Mosier and continue on to the Senator Mark O. Hatfield West Trailhead east of Hood River and return. This 38.5-mile trip includes the vista at Rowena Crest, travel through the Mosier Twin Tunnels and a rest stop (twice) at the historic Mayerdale Estate.

The Friends of the Historic Columbia River Highway supports the restoration and reconnection of the historic highway through the Columbia River Gorge. Our Vision is to educate the public about the historic highway, advocate for the restoration and preservation of the existing drivable portions of the historic highway to their 1920s appearance and link drivable portions with pedestrian and bicycle accessible connections, creating a continuous route through the Columbia River Gorge.
