CycleOregon lineup announced
The 2019 Cycle Oregon lineup of fully supported rides has been announced. There are three distinct events planned — a weeklong road ride, a weekend gravel ride and a one-day, women only ride. Each event enables riders of all abilities to explore the state's renowned natural beauty on two wheels, plus connects riders with rural towns such as Oakridge, Dufur and Independence.
The Classic (7-day ride), to be held Sept. 7 through 14, returns to Central Oregon, where cyclists will be immersed in some of the state's most iconic and stunning natural landscapes. The loop, which is 430 miles, plus an additional 60-mile option, includes the majestic Cascade Mountains, three of the country's most scenic rivers and Crater Lake.
The Gravel, to be held May 17 through 19, lets cyclists experience the challenges and scenic beauty of gravel road riding. This year's ride is limited to just 500 riders and is based out of the historic farming town of Dufur in the eastern Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. The ride features a combination of gravel and paved roads.
The Joyride, to be held June 22, is heading to Independence, the heart of the Willamette Valley. Women cyclists of all ages and all ranges of experience can choose among three different fully supported rides (18, 40 and 64 miles) among rolling hills, orchards, vineyards and wide-open farmlands.
