Stay Safe

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.

Is it humanly possible?

This tour is MOST DIFFICULT and designed for cyclists who ride often and average more than 15 miles per hour. As far as I know, it has never been done on a bike and may never be done again.

7 days riding, 7 nights of lodging

506 miles, 30,611 feet of elevation gain

DRAFT Mapped Route: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/11481847 the section between Kah-Nee-Ta and Prineville is not as mapped yet. We will be avoiding the major roads.

2 SAG rigs will be available to haul cyclists who just can’t finish a day. If it turns out we can’t secure lodging in Seneca, we will be staying in John Day instead. The mileage will be about the same.
