Prepare for challenging riding and mind-blowing mountain scenery as we go up, over, down, and around the heart of Oregon’s Cascade Range. Pack light — we’ll stay indoors at a slate of hotels and mountain lodges, where we’ll take advantage of civilized dining and great swimming in several high-mountain lakes.

Starting from Eugene, we’ll ride Adventure Cycling’s TransAmerica Bicycle Trail along McKenzie River on our way to Belknap Hot Springs at the gateway to the Cascades, perfectly poised to ride McKenzie Pass. We’ll soon connect with Adventure Cycling’s Sierra Cascades Bicycle Route, taking us to trendy, recreation-based towns such as Sisters and Bend. Then it’s back up to the high Cascades where our adventure culminates in the climb to Crater Lake followed by an unforgettable downhill to the shores of Diamond Lake. From there it’s a short shuttle back to Eugene.

Information for eBike riders:
Because every rider, eBike, road condition, and elevation profile is different, it is ultimately up to the participant to judge best whether their battery will last through each tour day. We recommend using pedal assist in its lowest setting or off when not needed to maximize battery range. Bringing a second battery is also recommended. Remember, there is no vehicle support on our inn-to-inn trips, and you would need to carry the extra battery along with all of your other things.
