A route that can be done one-way or as a pleasant loop, this ride frames the best of the Willamette Valley and the rolling hills surrounding it. Leaving Salem amid rolling hills, you’ll pass farming areas from grass seed to Christmas trees. Then you’ll climb for roughly 10 miles, with one steep stretch, rewarded by vistas of the valley from the Coast Range north to Mt. Hood. The descent into Silverton is glorious, with sweeping curves and long straight sections. Silverton, a charming historic town set along a leafy brook, is a great place to stop for lunch. If you want to ride back to the start, you’ll traverse gently rolling hills as you wind through some of Oregon’s richest farmland. This ride has about 2,000 feet of elevation gain overall.
