ABOUT THIS TOUR
We will meet at our headquarters downtown Hood River, Oregon. There we begin our journey aboard an eBike and make our way to the most iconic overlook of Mount Hood and the Hood River Valley. Every pedal stroke of our initial ascent is worthy of the view and you will never see riding a bicycle the same way!
Majestic Mount Hood views will continue to captivate and impress. Sharing the history of the valley and gazing through the orchards as we pedal along quiet country roads making our approach to the Hood River Lavender Farm. Time to refresh (lavender lemonade $5) or pick (mini bushel $5) in the scented aroma of over 75 varieties of lavender, we leave smelling fresh and invigorated. Continuing our way around parts of 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 one last stop at another family owned winery/cider house and U-pick flower and fruit orchard. The bounty is yours for the picking, and soon after we return on a downhill ease into Hood River.
We cover a good amount of miles (+/- 17 ) at a moderate pace and the eBikes make the effort minimal. Although we do frequenlty make stops to enjoy the shade and scenery, this itinerary has a good amount of sun exposure.
This tour pedals along quiet country roads, you must be comfortable in that situation.
