The Historic Columbia River Highway was designed to take full advantage of every natural aspect, scenic feature, waterfall, viewpoint and panorama along the Columbia River.  Currently there are 64 miles available for off highway riding and that will be the focus of this tour.  As a finishing touch, we will explore the Willamette Scenic Bikeway in a valley filled with vineyards and wineries.
