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. Routes listed on this website are for informational purposes and intended as a reference guide only.

This might just be the best bike tour in Oregon. Combine several hot springs, a desert, gobs of remoteness, burgers and shakes, one of the top wildlife refuges in America, hidden caves, a historic hotel with great food (now a state park), wild horses, and lots of Oregon history… It includes the mountain loop road, which is closed 9 months of the year. Its easy to bypass and still makes for a great tour regardless. Additional mileage can include adding the Diamond Loop (scenic byway), and/or starting in Burns.

Frenchglen, Fields, The Narrows, Crystal Crane Hot Springs

Tire: 32-40c
