Ride Description

Oregon is one of the best states for cycling, and this tour gives you a wonderful sample of what Oregon has to offer cyclists.  The tour starts and ends in Eugene, which has been designed as a Gold Level Bicycle Friendly Community, and was also ranked #3 in the nation as a Bike Friendly City.  Upon leaving Eugene, we follow river valleys in some of the best wine producing areas in Oregon.  We’ll spend an extra day in the town of McMinnville, where you can slow down to taste wine from dozens of vineyards.  If you’re an aviation buff, you can also visit the world famous Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum, home of the original Spruce Goose and over a hundred other famous planes and space exhibits.  Oregon is also known for its lush forests, and you’ll spend a day crossing the coastal divide through a national back country scenic byway.  Then we’ll ride the most famous bicycle route in Oregon, the Coast Bike RouteThis is one of the most spectacular stretches of road in the United States, displaying countless scenic panoramas.  For 4 days we will hit some of the best legendary spots on the coast, while also unveiling some hidden gems that are off the normal tourist path.  Come to Oregon and sample our vineyards, forests and the amazing coast!

People Cycling's Ride Rating

People Cycling has four categories for our rides – Easy, Moderate, Difficult, and Challenging. It should be somewhat obvious what these categories mean, but please become familiar with the elevations and distances that define them:

Easy
Easy rides are under 30mi/48km in average distance and 1600ft/500m in average elevation
Moderate
Moderate rides are over the Easy rating but under 50mi/80km and 2460ft/750m
Difficult
Difficult rides are as over the Moderate rating but under 75mi/120km and 3280/1000m
Challenging
Anything over the Difficult rating

NOTE: This is not a strict guideline. There could be rides that have a day or two where the average elevation or distance exceeds the values given above. These anomalies should be outlined in the ride description. It is recommended that you read it carefully.

About People Cycling

People Cycling is a recently launched cycling club, which you can join for free, and is led by volunteer ride leaders. We will be offering tours in the United States and overseas. Our tours are made up of a small group of participants (typically 20-30 or so) who want to ride 30 to 55 miles a day over a one or two week period in interesting regions of the world.

Our ride leaders are volunteers and do not financially profit on tours they lead. They are also given broad discretion on how to lead their tours, and we consider them our greatest asset.

People Cycling tours are operated at cost or at lower cost (as negotiated by our ride leaders) than individuals can obtain on commercial tours. Within the cost of a tour, there is a nominal fee to support club operations and provide tools to ride leaders to manage their rides.

A lifetime membership in People Cycling is absolutely FREE, so please join us and become one of us – we the people, cycling together.
