FAQ

Just the facts please.
There will be two course distances to maximize the views, riding experience and safety for cyclists of every level.
 
The 39 mile ride has gentle rolling hills, spectacular views along the Deschutes River,  goes through the heart of Maupin and has a great spot to refuel at the future home of the Maupin Deschutes River Athletic Complex before a 3-mile climb out of town. Once you are on the Juniper Flats, the views of the cascade mountains surrounding the cyclists will keep the legs spinning all the way back to the Wasco County Fairgrounds.
 
The metric century ride starts with a climb out of Historic Tygh Valley and circles around the Pine Hollow Reservoir for the best views of Mt. Hood on the East Side. The ride then proceeds down to the Fairgrounds and follows a loop past White River Falls, Shearar Falls and along the Deschutes River before stopping at the future Maupin Deschutes River Athletic Complex. The 3-mile climb out of Maupin will take you to the Juniper Flats to then speed down toward the Wasco County Fairgrounds.
 
At the end of both routes, we will host an event expo, music, beer garden and food carts at the Wasco County Fairgrounds.
