Hood River is known for its active lifestyle and is rapidly raising its profile as one of America’s unique wine areas. (It was named a Top 10 Wine Destination for 2017 by Wine Enthusiast Magazine). Visitors can experience both at once with a fun cycling tour.
MountNbarreL offers guided, all-inclusive wine-tasting bike tours, bringing together two Hood River favorites: cycling and wineries. Their standard tour is a leisurely seven-mile exploration of Hood River Valley’s west side. Pedal past orchards and breathtaking views of both Mt. Adams and Mt. Hood, and stop at three wineries―Phelps Creek Vineyard, Cathedral Ridge Winery and Marchesi Vineyard―with vineyard tours and food pairings. There are also seasonal stops for u-pick lavender, berries, vegetables and flowers. Owner Ali McLaughlin also offers custom bike tours of the Hood River Valley for up to 17 participants.
