We meet at Sol Rides headquarters 13 Oak St. in Hood River, OR. then promptly load into the Sol Train (12 passenger van) for a quick 20-minute drive to Cascade Locks, OR.
If you are interested in arriving car-free, check out Columbia Gorge Express Shuttle coming from Portland, they will drop you off there in Cascade Locks where we can meet and begin tour.
Rolling into the heart of the Columbia River Gorge where the wilderness collides with the wondrous natures of man. We begin our tour pedaling over to Thunder Island as we gaze into the expansive view thru the Bridge of the Gods as your guide shares history of the local surroundings and the geological events in which this area is nested upon. Then merging onto the Historic Highway (no vehicles) and making our way to the Bonneville Dam Fish Hatchery, enjoying the creeks and cliffs along the way.
This is a great tour to be in the shade on hot summer days, great for families that would like to do less miles on bike (+/- 14) and be on a bike path with no vehicles 90% of the trip. Also to investigate the fire scar of September 2017 'Eagle Creek Fire'.
