The Gorge Ride offers a 38.5-mile route along the historic highway and state trail. The route takes you past panoramic views at Rowena Crest, the grounds of the historic Mayerdale Estate, and the restored Mosier Twin Tunnels. Advance registration on Eventbrite is open until June 10, with a non-refundable fee of $45 for ages 12 & up, $15 for ages 6-11. Day-of-event registration is $55 for adults and $25 for ages 6-11. Kids 5 and under are free.

The ride is pretty accessible, with no more than a 5% incline. Riders will be fully supported with water stops, snacks, and mechanical support. Check-in and day-of-event registration will be at the Gorge Discovery Center from 7 to 10 AM. Participants get a raffle ticket and a chance to win a Showers Pass jacket by completing a survey. Waivers, helmets, and adherence to health guidelines are required. Finish line treats include Blue Bell ice cream and fruit bars.
