Event Description:
Cycle Oregon is a non-profit organization dedicated to transforming individuals and communities through bicycling.  

Cycle Oregon is turning the big 3-0 this year and to honor this momentous occasion, we have put together a timeless ride. Showcasing the rugged, magnificent midsection of our beloved state, we’ve laid a route traveling into the noble Cascade Range, cruising alongside wild, scenic rivers, and skirting the rim of the mesmerizing, deep, blue waters of Crater Lake. As you fill up on inspiration and hard-earned memories, you can feel good knowing that you’re not only having a great time – you’re helping support many unique and wonderful places.

Day 4 - Diamond Lake to Dorena Lake: Back in the saddle, hopefully feeling rested and reinvigorated, today’s route is a real treat. 4 miles from Diamond Lake, you hop on Highway 138 for 40 (count ‘em–4-0) miles of glorious downhill. This stretch is a National Scenic Byway and follows the Wild and Scenic Umpqua River. It’s also prime waterfall country. Clearwater Falls, Whitehorse Falls, Toketee Falls, and Watson Falls (almost 300 ft tall!) are slightly off course, but well worth the walk. After lunch, you’ll tackle a 13-mile, sometimes steep climb, before finishing up the day on 10 miles of the Row River Trail, a revived railroad track-turned-trailalong the shoreline of Dorena Lake.

Proceeds from the ride go to the Cycle Oregon Fund, which helps preserve and protect the special places of Oregon and supports community development projects in the regions through which we ride.
