Bike and Hike Through the Gorge with Pedal Bike Tours
Wednesday, February 25, 2015
The bike and hike combination tour starts with a 45 minute drive to Columbia River Highway. The tour stops throughout the drive in order for you to take photos of the scenic mountain views in the Gorge.
Once at the Historic Columbia River Highway, the guide will break out the bikes and get started on a fun filled ride through nature. The bike tour is great for beginners as the terrain is made up of small hills and the tour stops every mile, so you could enjoy the many waterfalls.
Short hikes will take participants closer to the waterfalls where you will be able to see species of trees and ferns, feel the refreshing mist of water on your skin, and possibly see native birds.
The ten mile Columbia River Gorge tour costs $89 per person and lasts for five hours. Every tour includes the bikes, helmets, and guide with ponchos and rain capes available if needed. Two tours go out daily, one at 9 am and the other at 1 pm.
Pedal Bike Tours also offers a Historic Downtown tour for beginner riders, Wine Country Tour for intermediate riders, and a eight hour Oregon Coast Tour.
Pedal Bike Tours, 133 SW 2nd Avenue, 10 am- 6pm, (503) 243- 2453. For more information click HERE.
