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.

An early 1900s wool shipping center on US 97, in north-central Oregon’s high grasslands, 36 miles north of Madras, and 58 miles south of Biggs. It incorporated in 1901, at which time it had a bank, a couple blacksmith shops, two-story wooden city hall/fire station/jail, several hotels, two newspapers, a post office, saloons, school, two stores and many other structures. Church services were held in the school building. Today a handful of people still watch over the old two-story hotel, town hall, livery stables and a strip of wooden buildings.
