Welcome to ORbike's challenging "Club Ride."
A "Club Ride" is an event where you get all of the safety elements, without any of the expensive amenities.
Hood and Back is an out-and-back ride. If you ride the whole distance, it is almost 80-miles and almost 6,000 feet of climbing. But you don't have to ride it all. You can turn back whenever it suits you. All roads are low-to-no traffic and the views are gorgeous. Most of the climbing is gradual but there are a couple of steeps going each way.
ORbike is an equal opportunity recreation provider operating under special use permit on the Mt. Hood National Forest, USDA Forest Service.
