Hello friends. With all the hecticness of the Lake Pepin adventure taking up a good chunk of this month, I’ve been behind on things (I’ll be writing about it soon! But in the meantime, check out my instagram stream for stuff.) And one of those things is reminding you fine folks that it’s just two short weeks until we do our Three Speed Camping Trip!
Yep, the weekend of Friday June 3 through Sunday June 5, we’ll be taking our trusty and laden three speeds out to Ainsworth State Park in the beautiful Columbia Gorge. It’s about a 25 mile one-way ride from the end of the MAX in Gresham. And there are many a waterfall to be seen as well! We’ve booked a site that can hold about eight folks, so registration is capped at that for now. And the other sites are already booked, so eight is enough!
If you arrive on Friday, on Saturday you can either hang out in camp or ride to Cascade Locks and/or Stevenson, where there are brew pubs! Or, you can ride out on Saturday and hang out with us that night. We return home on Sunday.
We’re looking at about $10-20 for total costs, including firewood. Price will depend on how many nights you can come.
The fine print:
- Only 2 through 5 speed hub geared bicycles allowed! Sorry, no exceptions. (Unless you bribe me. I mean it.)
- You must carry all the gear on your own bike. There will be no “sag” wagon or vehicle support. Nor can you cheat by asking your friends, family, spouse, significant other, etc. They used to tour like this, you can too!
- The only group departure will be on Friday morning, so if you can’t make it then, you’ll be riding solo. However, we may ride back as a group on Sunday.
If you are interested in participating, you can register here.
