Twin Tunnels Terroir
Combining our signaure daily tour with one of Oregon's newest AVA=Columbia Gorge. This tour is ripe for the tastings and the views.
We will meet in Hood River at Sol Rides headquarters, 13 Oak St, Hood River, Oregon and begin our tour from there. Saddle up and turn the E-Bikes on to make our way east into the Twin Tunnels of the Historic Highway (no vehicles) and enjoy the peaceful open space of the Gorge. Thirsty for adventure, our destination is Mosier, Oregon and the 2 wineries that share a similar AVA (Columbia Gorge) but different sun and wind exposure. Each having their own unique character in taste and terroir that our host will share into every pour.
The relaxing atmosphere, jaw dropping views, and mouth watering libations create all the fixings for an East Gorge wine tasting tour.
2 wine tastings from estate grown wineries of the Columbia River Gorge AVA
Local/fresh baguette sandwiches with seasonal fruit and a locally made desert pairing
* Most often we are invited on a tour of the vineyard and/or wine making facility. As a working farm/vineyard we must give way to the fruits of labor.
** There are horseshoes and lawn games to enjoy at the vineyard while sipping the libations and enjoying lunch.

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.
