Mount Hood Majesty
Upon meeting at our headquarters in downtown Hood River, we leave the city streets behind for a quick 5 minute shuttle to where we begin our adventure of bounty, bikes, and batteries.
This tour is as much of an E-Bike ride through the Hood River Valley, as it is in sampling the vineyard grapes and getting to know the local lay of the land.
Once we turn the E-Bikes on we have Mount Hood in our view. Arriving atop the hill outside of Odell, Oregon, our first stop has double mountain views (Mount Adams & Mount Hood) and award winning wines. Here we enjoy fresh baguette sandwiches, seasonal fruit and fabled tales along with the varietals. This location shares the grounds of the Hood River Lavander Farm with 60 varities of aromatic bliss.
From there, we head out to explore more of the 'fruit loop', covering some easy miles on quiet country roads, where we have often heard that it 'looks and feels like Tuscany'.
Next stop is a winery that has been around for 20 years but the fruits of their family labor are enriched into the valley soil for nearly a century. "Come for the wine, stay for the views".
Our final tasting is right next door and back to where we started this tour. The valleys oldest winery along with an award winning cider house and U-pick fruit and flower farm. Bounty awaits..

What to Expect:
This is our signature tour, the one that leaves you breathless from the scenery, not from the uphill.
As we begin pedaling away from Hood River, the propulsion of an E-Bike instantly creates a satisfying exhilaration of minimal effort and maximum fun.
Let us ride together along the Historic Highway (no vehicles), stopping along the way to admire the scenic vistas and sharing 'Gorge' history. Depending on wind, weather and season, we choose from U-pick orchards, small hike to a waterfall and wildflowers or the overlook of Mount Hood and the Hood River Valley. A tour that creates lasting memories and has you wondering why there isn't an E-Bike in your garage.
We ride at a moderate pace as the tour guide shares with you the local history and geological wonder. Half of this tour stays in the shade during summer and is on a bike path (Historic Highway) with no vehicles offering a peaceful and enjoyable experience.
