Every Sunday in August, See Oregon
Wine Country from your Bike
(Rickreall, Oregon) Over 1000 Cyclists are expected to
participate this year in an event Eola Hills Wine Cellars started back in 1997.
They hosted a group of 30 cyclists that year on an organized bike ride through
the Oregon Wine Country. In addition to riding through some of the most
beautiful countryside in the Valley, it was also billed as an opportunity for
the participants to train for "Cycle Oregon", which has now become one of the
premier cycling events in the World.
Now staged every Sunday in August, Bike Oregon Wine Country features scenic
routes through the Willamette Valley wine country. There are stops at several
wineries en route, and support vehicles not only provide technical and courtesy
support, but will also pick up the wines ordered by the cyclists at the
participating wineries, and deliver them back to Eola Hills, where the ride
starts and ends!
The $75 registration fee covers lunch, a BBQ at Eola
Hills at the end of the ride, and ride support. The event is open to all levels
of riders, with ride options varying from 45 to 70 miles. The
ride begins every Sunday in August at 8AM. Register by going to
