Cherry of a Ride Bike Ride

St. Mary’s Academy, located in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge, will host the 10th Annual “Cherry of A Ride.” This recreational ride 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, for the hard-core rider, a 100-mile ride. 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 can not see from the freeway. Riders are encouraged to use our online registration at or download a mail in registration form from the same site. The deadline for mail-in preregistration is Friday, April 4. After this date, online registration and “day of event” registrations will still be accepted. All riders must begin between 6-9 a.m. and the routes will close at 5 p.m. For additional information, contact the school at 541-296-6004, ext. 414 or email
