Ride Description

RIDE DESCRIPTION

The beautiful Umpqua Valley in Oregon is home to over 30 award winning wineries.  From our home base in Roseburg, Oregon, you’ll be able to visit almost half of these wineries by bicycle.  Cycling in this wine country is a pleasure on low traffic country roads that connect the wineries and follow the Umpqua River valley.  It’s not all flat, however, as modest hills provide some climbing and enhance the beautiful landscape.

This tour is fixed base.  Each day we will recommend a different loop ride that passes by one or more wineries.  If you taste wines and find some you really like, no worries, we’ll take care of transporting any purchases you make back to our hotel.  If you don’t care to taste wines, you’ll still enjoy some of the most scenic cycling in Central Oregon.  On each of our routes you’ll enjoy views of the Umpqua River, orchards, wooded hillsides, pastoral fields and of course, miles of vineyards.

If you wish to extend your visit to Oregon, we recommend Crater Lake National Park and the unique, rugged Oregon coast, as both are about two hours away by car.

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.
