Gran Route

winding road - green2

This 117-mile route will take you deep into the Siuslaw and Smith River forests. The scenery is stunning. The route includes rural county roads and remote BLM byways (paved). The challenges include a timed hill climb and 5,700 feet of elevation gain.

Medio Route

This 71-mile route follows the Gran Route for the first 41 miles (including the timed hill climb) and then turns north onto Elk Creek Road (which turns into Buck Creek Road) to Siuslaw River Road, where the course turns east for the return to Bohemia Park. Riders will enjoy seemingly prehistoric forest scenery and fondly remember the 3,900 feet of elevation gain.

 Piccolo Route

The Piccolo route is perfect for recreational and beginner  cyclists. This family friendly route is the Row River National Recreation Trail  a round-trip distance of 31.2 miles or any fraction thereof its totally up to the rider. The trail  follows an abandoned rail line from Cottage  Grove to Dorena Lake, Culp Creek and the nearby Umpqua National Forest. Its a great ride for those  looking for a pleasant pedal  through beautiful rural landscapes and along the shores of Dorena Lake.
