WHAT TO EXPECT​

We will meet at our headquarters in downtown Hood River, Oregon. From here we turn on the e-bikes and ascend with grace toward Hood Rivers's most iconic overlook.

Sharing the history of the valley and gazing through the orchards as we pedal on quiet country roads and make our approach to the Hood River Lavender Farm. Time to refresh with a lavender lemonade ($5) or U-pick lavender ($5), beginning mid-June thru mid-September. Continuing our way along the ‘Fruit Loop’, we set our sights on the wide open space that surrounds us. More than once we have heard "This place looks and feels like Tuscany". We make a stop or two at different fruit markets(plural) lavender farms to enjoy the shade and sweet nectar.

We cover approximately (+/- 20mi) at a moderate pace and the e-bikes will make the effort minimal. Be aware there are a couple of uphill/downhill sections that do require physical attention. Although we do frequently make stops to enjoy the shade and scenery, this itinerary has a good amount of sun and wind exposure.
