Our experience provides the best of its category -- best bicycles, guides, vehicles! We transport our guests and bikes in Mercedes Sprinters, and our guides ride with very small groups. We'll visit waterfalls you will not see on other tours. You'll immerse yourself in the temperate rainforest!
We tell the stories that need to re-awaken. Beyond the 180 years of pioneers and loggers, before the century-old highway, this was the land of people with a rich mythology. We remember the long history this place holds, and tell these stories as best we can.
After we fit you for bikes at our shop in SE Portland, we'll head out in one of our Mercedes Sprinters. The bike ride and hike both take place in the Columbia River Gorge, the waterfall-laden western end of an 80-mile (130-km) canyon. At a breathtaking vista overlooking the Gorge, we'll take photos, and hear the story of who was here before us. We'll also tell you how the waterfalls were created before getting on your bikes to ride.
Over the course of the tour, we'll ride over six miles (10 km), mostly gentle downhill on a historic highway frequented by cyclists, see four to six waterfalls, hike 2.5 miles (4km), visit one waterfall unique to our tour -- all within a 30-40 min drive of the city. The tour is about five hours; you'll remember it for years to come!
