This 295 mile bike ride begins and ends right here in Albany! Do you crave the wide-open landscape, the silky-smooth single lane roads, the forested canopies, the soundtrack of a river as you pedal along, those postcard worthy views, and those friendships made and nurtured. Then what you want is the Classic!
The amount of geographical wonder packed into the 295 by 395-mile rectangle we call Oregon is unparalleled. And for over 30 years Cycle Oregon has been exposing you to the sights, sounds and people of this wonderland. And still, there are roads and communities we have yet to experience – until now. This year, we’re taking you on an all-new adventure, with new routes, new communities, and new experiences.
You can read more and register for the event on the Cycle Oregon website.
