Riders will load up their bikes to pedal 220 miles and over 18,000 feet of elevation exploring the entirety of the Ochoco National Forest in Central and Eastern Oregon. They will roll out from Good Bike Co. LLC with 40 new friends and pedal through the breathtaking Crooked River Canyon, wind through the remote Maury Mountains, and traverse the rugged terrain of the Ochoco National Forest back to Good Bike Co. in Prineville, OR. Riders haul all of their own gear, but leave the rest to us. They’ll enjoy a fully catered dinner each night and a hearty breakfast every morning, fishing opportunities at each campsite and throughout the route, stocked lunch/aid stops, and full sag support.
