Hood River

Hood River Weekend

Ride along the Columbia Gorge on the Old Historic Columbia Highway (May 12-15th 2017)

Riding the Hood River Tour

Hop in the RCC Club Car for the annual Hood River weekend. Choose from multiple routes and difficulty levels, all with terrific scenery. How about two days riding along the Columbia Gorge, much of it on trails or the old Historic Columbia Highway?

How about mountain views? We have those also - spectacular shots of Mt Hood and Mt Adams while climbing and descending through orchards, along the river, and rolling past rural farmlands.

If you live to climb, we can add more elevation gain and twisty descents to satisfy you! Whatever you choose, you are sure to have a terrific time, ending each day back in your comfortable room in Hood River, sharing tall tales and fun times with your fellow RCC club members.

Most participants arrive on Friday evening. The ride on Monday is a short ride that can be enjoyed before heading home.
