Ride Description

Note:  This tour is a self-contained, inn to inn bike tour.  That means each person will be carrying their own belongings on their bike, and that we’ll stay in nice hotels and eat our meals at restaurants or cafes.  (No camping or outdoor cooking!)  For those who have never done a self-contained tour, you’ll experience the extra satisfaction of self-reliance and oneness with your bike.

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 highlight of this tour is riding the Oregon coast, often called one of the most spectacular stretches of road in the United States.  We’ll not only ride along roads with countless scenic panoramas, but we’ll also stop at some of the best legendary spots on the coast.  Some days we’ll surprise you by unveiling hidden gems that are off the normal tourist path.  While the highlight of this tour is riding along the stunning Oregon Coast, you’ll also experience the award-winning wine region of the Willamette Valley and the lush forests of the Oregon Coastal Range on our way to the coast.  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.
