Welcome Riders & Families ...
to the Hood River Harvest Ride!
The Hood River Harvest Ride is a family-friendly bike ride through the less-traveled majestic back-roads of the Hood River Valley.
Five Routes: With easy, moderate and challenging routes available ... and a new "kids under ten loop" this year ... riders have options to take ‘er easy or feel the burn.
Family Friendly: Reasonable offsite childcare will be available from Bambinos International Learning Center, and there's lots of things to do in Hood River for family members and friends who don't want to ride.
A tyvek commemorative bib will be given to each ride with the year, rider number and Harvest Ride logo. Keep this as proof of your registration for use at rest stops and for lunch. You will be given your bib at the registration table on Saturday morning.
HRVRC Supports Local Land Use Protections
The Hood River Harvest Ride is a fundraiser for the non-profit Hood River Valley Residents Committee (HRVRC).
Formed in 1977 to prevent harmful development in the upper Hood River Valley, HRVRC continues its work to nurture and protect those things which make Hood River the beautiful place that it is, including:
- Open space
- Farms and forests in the Hood River Valley
- Wilderness areas on Mt. Hood
- Livable communities
The Mt. Hood Wilderness Bill
One of HRVRC's biggest success is the Mt. Hood Wilderness Bill. HRVRC initiated the bill, which resulted in a land swap between Mt. Hood Meadows and the U.S. Forest Service. Upon completion in 2010, the bill will protect over 2,000 acres from development in fragile watersheds, historic Tilly Jane, and in deer and elk migration corridors.
Recent Bicycle Focus
Most recently, the HRVRC has been working to promote and enhance bicycle and pedestrian connectivity throughout the area.
