Road Cycling

Cyclists need to be extremely aware and use caution along this section of the Historic Columbia River Highway, as it is the most congested with car traffic and has very little shoulder. Spring and summer weekends tend to have bumper-to-bumper traffic, so a weekday foray is likely to be much more enjoyable. These Ready, Set, Gorge tips can help you plan your trip.
