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.

The fruit stand at Kimberly has long served those who enjoy making the scenic drive to stock up on locally grown fruit. With the spectacular scenery along the John Day River and plenty to see at the nearby John Day Fossil Beds, a trip to Kimberly during peak fruit season makes a fantastic day trip or weekend getaway. Deep rich soil along the banks of the John Day River combines with a mild climate and an elevation of 1,800 feet to make fruit grown at Thomas Orchards at Kimberly flavorful and sweet. The extended Thomas family has worked together here for over 65 years, keeping the farm running and growing quality fruit that people have come to rely on year after year.
