ABOUT THIS TOUR
We will meet at our headquarters downtown Hood River, Oregon. From here we turn on the E-Bikes and ascend with grace towards Hood Rivers most iconic overlook.
Majestic Mount Hood views will continue to captivate and impress along the way. 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 mini bushell ($5 beginning mid-June thru mid-September). 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 a stop (mid-June thru mid-October) at a fruit market and enjoy the shade and sweet nectar. We have one more family owned winery/cidery- fruit orchard to enjoy the bounty at before we return on a downhill ease into Hood River.
We cover a decent amount of road miles (+/- 20) 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.
This tour pedals along quiet country roads, you must be comfortable in that situation.
