The cold, wet days of winter are officially over and all around there are plants in bloom.
But you’ve never truly seen flower power until you’ve ridden through Silverton-area in June with entire fields are bursting with flowers. What a perfect place to ride a bike, and Petal Pedal on June 14th is the best way to traverse the Willamette Valley’s roads less traveled.
Those Legs Love You, or Love You Not…
Like a flower, the ride features interlocking petal loops that give you the choice of how far you ride without having to make that decision in advance. Cruise through the gorgeous landscape, and let your legs tell you where to go. Feeling strong? Keep riding. Itching for a beer? Head off to the finish line.
