Ride Description

General Description:

Enjoy a hub and spoke ride out of the small town of Corvallis, Oregon without having to move your luggage each day.  There will be some rides from the hotel but also some distant starts in order to fully appreciate the beauty of the valley and its foothills.  One ride out of Newport, Oregon will allow everyone to appreciate the Newport Bay and the wonderful food at the Local Ocean restaurant.  Those who wish to stay a bit and explore the coast, will have the time.  Several longer rides are through the wonderful large farms of the valley, and usually associated with stops for lunch at the Pink House in Independence or sticky buns at Hiatt Family Farm.  There will also be a longer ride to Brownsville, Oregon to have lunch at a local biking favorite - Randy's.  Finally, there will be hills. Two hill rides, that some may not wish to do, showcasing a few covered bridges..  

For a rest day, some may wish to visit the many wineries in the region (a list of some favorites will be included), orchards, fruit stands and breweries, or take an easy stroll to the downtown.

Breakfast will be included at the hotel, lunches will be self purchased on the rides and two dinners will be provided, one at a farm to table, Gathering Together Farm, and another at a restaurant downtown, within walking distance.

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 rides are under 30mi/48km in average distance and 1600ft/500m in average elevation
Moderate rides are over the Easy rating but under 50mi/80km and 2460ft/750m
Difficult rides are as over the Moderate rating but under 75mi/120km and 3280/1000m
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 bicycle touring club, which you can join for free. We offer Domestic and International Cycling Tours which are led by volunteer Ride Leaders. Our tours are made up of a small group of participants (typically 15-20 or so) who want to ride an average of 30 to 55 miles a day over a one or two week period in interesting regions of the world. Our tours range in price from frugal getaways to luxurious adventures. We travel road, gravel, or mountain bike styles, and all bicycle types – including e-bikes, recumbents, and tandems are typically allowed.

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.

What are you waiting for? Join today to see what bicycle adventure awaits you in our club.

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