Oregon Bicycle Ride: Wine, Cheese, Salmon & Trees (Astoria)
July 30 - August 6, 2016
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.

You asked. We delivered! For the first time in our history, we are embarking on a beautiful tour of northwest Oregon. The 2016 Oregon Bicycle Ride route developed as a result of voting by our riders during the 2011 and 2015 bicycle rides. This is a historic tour that crosses the mouth of the mighty Columbia River, visits sites used by famed explorers Lewis and Clark, includes a ferry back into Oregon, and rides through fabled Northwest forests and countryside. Along the way, cyclists will have time to tour world class Oregon wineries, play on beautiful Pacific beaches, learn about the area’s long, rich history and all while staying in several small, quiet communities whose economies are based on logging, fishing, farming and viticulture.
