About This Activity

This unique and inspiring event gives women and girls a fun, gorgeous ride along the Columbia River Gorge.

The 13-mile “Hope on Wheels” Ride is for the novice and is great for moms and young daughters; it stars at The Dalles River Front Marina Park heads to the Discovery Center and back.  The  20- mile “Girl Friends Ride” heads out along the scenic Columbia River to Rowena, just below the loops; however, add a couple more miles and head up the loops for one of the most amazing views!  This is a perfect ride with your  friends, sisters, daughters, mothers and grandmothers!!

A more challenging beautiful scenic route takes the rider up the Rowena Loops as “The Sisters of The Road” 40-mile ride then continues to the little town of Mosier.  Here you can stop at the ice-cream store or just bike through town to the Mosier Tunnels and the Memaloose Overlook on the Old Columbia River Highway and into Hood River.  For the more adventurous: “A Chick Trip” the 60-mile ride, continues up Eastside Road with a turn-around at the Pine Grove School and the beautiful trip back to River Front Park in The Dalles.

This all-women’s cycling event is a fully-supported ride created by those passionate about cycling, friendship, fitness, and the desire to “brake the cycle” of violence, making a difference in people’s lives!!

Gorge-Us Gals’ sponsors love their riders and will pamper them with well stocked rest stops, bike mechanic support, surprises along the route, sassy socks, girly gift bags, and fun finish-line festivities;  with chocolate, girlie products, food and music!!
