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 loop starts and ends in Ashland with over 8,000′ of climbing up to and along the Siskiyou Crest. Part of the route parallels the Pacific Crest Trail. No services at all once you leave Ashland until Talent at mile 53. In Talent there are several eateries and a good coffee shop, or you can grab a beer at Flywheel Cycles. Incredible views! Roads are mostly packed DG, but can be rocky around Dutchman Peak. 32c tires minimum and some low gearing recommended.
