Columbia Gorge Explorer is Memorial Day Weekend

Postby cheneyt119 » Thu Mar 31, 2011 4:07 pm

I'm going on Columbia Gorge Explorer ‘11

The gorge is quite spectacular In May and it's very inexpensive to use the County and State Parks. ... plorer_11/

It is 4 days May 27 - 30 starting the Friday of Memorial Day Weekend, it's loaded touring with camping, but credit card touring is ok too. It is sponsored jointly by the Portland Wheelmen and the Vancouver Bike Club.
Day 1: Vancouver to Carson – 52 miles.
Day 2: Carson to Deschutes River State Pk. – 63 miles.
Day 3: Deschutes to Viento State Pk. – 55 miles.
Day 4: back home, mostly along the HCRH – 64 miles.

Honestly I can't think of a better way to train for our September Adventure. I just reserved my spot 0900 Friday Apr 01 and I was number 48 out of a possible 55, so no time to waste. Check it out and if you can, come along.
