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!
