The Pacific West state of Oregon is one of the most diverse states in the country. From sea level to towering Mt. Hood and from remote national forests to bustling cities, Oregon has it all. Our Sea to Sky tour highlights this diversity. You will experience the rugged coastline with its pounding surf and expanses of beautiful, sandy beaches, up to the timberlands of the Siuslaw, Willamette, Deschutes and Mt. Hood National Forests. You will cycle through the pastoral setting of the Willamette Valley and the vibrancy of Eugene. Your anticipation will build as you trace the McKenzie River in preparation for your assault upon mighty McKenzie Pass and the towering snowclad Cascades, and on to your approach on Mt. Hood for an unforgettable final night at the Timberline Lodge. Revel in the essence of this Sea to Sky experience.
For this challenging 9-day tour, you’ll ride 566 miles, starting along the Pacific coast, then inland through the “Emerald City” and onto the flanks of Oregon’s highest mountain. Lodging will reflect the environment, from the family run ocean side retreat to the bustling urban hotspot near restaurants and downtown sights, to the historic alpine lodge next to the only year round ski resort in north America.
This tour can be booked for any dates. This area enjoys a long cycling season, from May through October. Tours must be booked at least 2 weeks in advance.
