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.

Our Foodie Field Trip is medium paced in order to ensure we have enough time to visit and enjoy each stop. Tours do include exercise and require physical fitness and some cardiovascular stamina. Some routes share the road with motor vehicle traffic and although are designed to be the safest possible, you must be comfortable being passed by auto traffic.
