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.

  1. It would be nice if the route were mapped on http://ridewithgps.com so that one could download a cue sheet or gps file. Mapping on http://gpsies.com would also allow download to gps devices but not a cue sheet option.

  2. Hi Kevin,

    You can access a cue sheet by selecting “Turn-By-Turn Directions (show)” beneath the elevation chart. Hope this helps!
