The Right Kind of Grind
Hold onto your handlebars because Cycle Oregon’s ride GRAVEL is back! The ride kicked off last year in the Tillamook State Forest to rave reviews.
To mix things up, this year the ride is heading to the stunning expanses of high, lonesome prairie, and forested foothills surrounding Dufur, Oregon for an unforgettable trip down some of Oregon’s most scenic backroads. For one golden weekend in mid-May, you have the opportunity to cruise a combination of gravel and paved roads, with wide-open views of Mt. Hood and Adams appearing around nearly every corner.
