Cascading Rivers Ride — Killer Fang
September 17 - 18, 2016 from 8:00 am - 3:00 pm
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions.

The ride starts in Estacada, just 18.5 miles east of I-205 where it intersects with Hwy 224/Clackamas.
The two-day overnight ride to Detroit Lake and back starts at the Estacada Station Cycling Plaza on the west side of City Hall. It’s called the Killer Fang Ride in tribute to a treacherous section of the Clackamas River. It is a challenging 72-mile ride each way (144 round trip) with fully supported overnight accommodations (camping or lodge, you choose). Meals, snacks, portage and more provided. This ride, with lots of hills, follows the fabulous Cascading Rivers Scenic Bikeway, and is for fit riders who like a challenge. The route follows the Clackamas and Breitenbush rivers where they carved a breathtaking, memorable route out of volcanic rock.
