St. Mary’s Academy of The Dalles will host the ninth annual “Cherry of a Ride,” Sunday, April 21. This is a recreational ride in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge that is fully supported and offers scenic route options for every level of rider. Route lengths are 30 miles, 48 miles, 60 miles, 80 miles and the 100-mile ride for the hard-core rider. All rides begin at St. Mary’s Academy, then head east of The Dalles, meandering through the blossoming cherry orchards and green wheat fields of rural Wasco County. The longer rides (60, 80 and 100) will offer riders a view of the Gorge that you cannot see from the freeway. You can register online at as well as view maps of the routes. All riders must begin between 6 and 9 a.m. and the routes will close at 5 p.m. St. Mary’s Academy is located at 1112 Cherry Heights Road, The Dalles, Oregon 97058.
