The Northwestern Tour
The 1st section begins in Astoria, OR right near the mouth of the mighty Columbia River. You will find Oregon to be one of the most bike friendly states in the US, plus it may be the most scenic with diverse high desert, snow covered mountain ranges, and beautiful standing forests to shade the ride. You will spend the entire tour, up until the last day, riding through this amazing state.
The tour starts at the coast and heads inland near the Columbia River. We pass through Portland right along the Columbia River before climbing to the base of Mt Hood. The third day is like riding in two different planets as it exits the tall green coastal forests and enters Oregon’s beautiful high desert that provides constant views of the Cascade Mountain Range...Mt Washington, Mt Jefferson, Mt Bachelor, 3 Fingered Jack, and the 3 Sisters, all snow capped, loom over the route for days. Needless to say, this tour provides strenuous terrain and eye-popping scenery before arriving in Boise ID.
