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.
