Good Rides for Any Cyclist
We’ve ground-tested several great rides in East Multnomah County charted at RideWithGPS.com. Here’s a peek at just a couple.
Dodge Park Ride
Road Ride: This route takes you on country roads riddled with nurseries and views of Mt. Hood. Stop at Dodge Park 10 miles into your ride for a picnic lunch. Plan on stocking up on food and drinks in Gresham since there are no provisions as you head farther east.
Watch for a fantastic descent to the Sandy River that ends with a roll across the Lusted Road Bridge right before you enter Dodge Park.
Two Rivers and a Creek Ride
Road Riding: This 30-mile loop takes a scenic tour of four different bike paths including a route around the Troutdale Airport and a long, scenic stretch along the Columbia River. Be sure to keep an eye out for the ospreys — and you may even see one catch a fish.
