Mommy doesn’t have a lot of time. Mommy has to pick up the kids and go shopping and make dinner and go to PTA and HRATS meetings. Mommy grabs the rest of the mommies and heads out for a quick ride. No joking, this is the ride the Hood River moms do when they’re short on time. No, it’s the ride we all do when we’re short on time. It also makes a decent recovery ride; it’s a close to flat as any ride in Hood River.
Park at Wal-Mart so you can do your shopping after you ride. Or so you can park where there aren’t parking meters. Or just park on Wasco Street.
