Business owners of the Gorge got together at this months Gorge Green Drinks Networking event with the topic of “Bikes Mean Business”. With so many cyclists riding through town, water bottle filling and window seats for bike watching are thing business will want to accommodate for their large numbered customers.

To further capitalize on the bike boom, Cascade Locks is also actively building out its trail offerings. Not only are they at the (current) end of a newly completed section of the Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail, they’re also working on a new, 25-mile network of off-road trails that will turn this town into a mountain biking destination and serve as perfect complement to the existing family-friendly easyCLIMB Trail.
