Portland to Mt Hood Bikepacking Adventure : Portland to Ripplebrook Campground

Last summer Alex and I embarked on a bike camping trip around Mt Hood. Our goal was to ride from Portland and spend some nights at various rivers and lakes. We both had some time off so our schedule was pretty loose.

Our rigs were full loaded yet nimble enough to get shredy.

The majority of the day was spent pedaling through country roads and avoiding angry Oregonians. 

We stayed the night at Ripplebrook Campground which is just off the Clackamas River. We had the place all to ourselves because we happened to be touring on the day campgrounds closed in Oregon! 

Firewood was salvaged and dinner was served.
