“Crown of the Cascades” (Sisters) – Bicycle Rides NW
July 22 - 29, 2017
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. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

The 31st annual Oregon Bicycle Ride will take us on an amazing tour of Oregon’s Cascade Mountains. Connecting some of the best riding in the state, this route rolls through high desert plains and lush old-growth forests, travels alongside pristine mountain lakes and crystal-clear streams, and frames stunning scenes of snow-capped volcanoes and vast expanses of basalt lava flows. This is a route climbers will love, with passes to conquer nearly every day. The towns we’ll visit represent an intriguing cross-section of rural Oregon: tiny hamlets, mountain-bike meccas, western-themed destinations, historic downtown districts – and no town at all, as you pitch your tent at a picturesque lake nestled in the middle of a verdant forest in the shadow of Mount Mazama and Crater Lake. Bring your friends, and enjoy the ride of a lifetime!
