Oregon Bicycle Ride, 2007


This year's Oregon Bicycle Ride offered us a chance to explore a lot of country in northern California that I had heard about, but not seen. Based on our experience on Oregon Bicycle Ride 2004 I was concerned that the temperatures might be very high and the campsites hot. However, we experienced temperatures about 15 degrees cooler than normal, which was just right. As always, the tour was organized by Bicycle Rides Northwest, a company based in Bend, Oregon.
