Featured Event: Hood River Harvest Ride

Fitness Friday, August 9, 2013 Written by

The Hood River Valley is home to more than just bountiful orchards and rolling vineyards. It is also the home of the Hood River Harvest Ride, a family-friendly bike ride down the valley’s less traveled roads. This is a great ride for a good cause – all proceeds benefit Hood River Residents Committee and their efforts to protect the livability of the valley’s cities and rural areas. There are five separate loops to choose from, each taking you past orchards and farms of the Hood River Valley with spectacular views of Mount Hood.
