The ever-popular Columbia Gorge Classic walks, plus bike and swim, are being held this weekend. The beauty of the Gorge, its forests and waterfalls, are highlighted on these Volkswalks and Volksbike.
Headquarters and start point for this bi-ennial classic are at the Marine Park in Cascade Locks, Oregon.
Most Mossbacks have made their transportation and lodging arrangements far in advance. However, event registration can be done on the day of the event for those "winging it" at this point. A famous hot dog lunch is available each day at the start point. Social events are included each evening.
