"Da Curvy Road Tour - 2019"
Team Leaders: Bob and Elsa Sinclair
This is the fourth annual running of Da Curvy Road Tour. Da Curvy Road Tour will test the driving skills of the average driver as the cars will traverse approximately 72 miles of the back roads in East Clackamas County. We’ll be heading East from Oregon City, then heading “North” out of Estacada, through the small community of Dover, to the town of Sandy and points north. There are few straight lines between these points, mostly Curvy Roads. We’ll slow down to gaze at numerous raging rivers, we’ll take a break among some huge old growth Hemlock trees draped with moss and a cable swing walk over the river, we’ll make a stop at one of the best Mt. Hood view points in the area and then traverse back down into the Sandy River valley again. All will terminate at Calamity Jane’s Hamburger Parlour Restaurant, (42015 SE Hwy 26, Sandy, OR) featuring over 40 different hamburgers (from 1/3 lb. to 1 lb. should you dare), salads, beer, wine and great shakes. Driving time is about two hours plus about 1 hour for intermediate stops and is of a relaxed pace so as to allow for scenery watching. Recommend that you fill up your tanks before the tour as there is nothing available in the back roads.
Note: We will be making a stop at the Eagle Fern park for a potty break and leg stretch where there is a now $6 per car daily fee. (Went up a dollar from last year). However, I have negotiated with the county and pre-paid for 20 day passes for only $2. So, the first 19 respondents I hear from will get the reduced passes (FYI - I’m claiming one of these). Otherwise, you’ll need to pay the $6 at the gate. Don’t delay or you’ll pay!
So, grab your camera, tighten those lug nuts, hone your driving skills and join us for Da Curvy Road Tour. Currently scheduled is for Saturday, June 15th, starting at the Oregon City Home Depot. Tour rolls around 9:00 a.m.
