Well this year is it. I'm getting older, and I gotta see some of this world right near where I live. I'm going to ride my seat right off this bike, along with MANY sets of tires, and all of YOU are going to help me This thread will be about rides; Rides near Mt. Hood, Rides around Mt. Hood, Rides originating FROM Mt. Hood. Some Rides won't really have much to do with Mt. Hood, except that some of us live near Mt. Hood, so that all our rides will originate from near Mt. Hood . But I'll need some help, here. So, all you FFs From Hood River, White Salmon, The Dalles, and other surrounding areas, as well as all the Inmates just passing through, help me add to this thread.
