Introduction to the Cascade Classic Chapter
With lungs like an operatic soprano, this tour screams quintessential Oregon.
The route covers a lion's share of Oregon gems: McKenzie Pass; two Scenic Bikeways; the mountain-chic towns of Sisters and Bend, where you can eat well, drink deeply and schmooze with Patagonia-clad locals; the sparkling lake-lavished Cascade Lakes Hwy that begs for picnicking; the English ale-swilling hamlet of Oakridge, touted as the mountain biking capital of the Northwest; and the famous 60-mile Robert Aufderheide Memorial Drive, a remote wilderness road and scenic byway that laces through the viscera of the Willamette National Forest.
Unlike some of the other routes in this book, which only explore remote locations dotted with tiny towns, this tours dips in and out of far-flung locations and comes up for breath in the more urbane Bend and Sisters, where you can drink craft brew, check out the local art scenes, go to a yoga class, visit the Farmers Market or sip a soy chai. The combo makes this a perfect route for honeymooners, people on splurge-iversaries or your city slicker cyclist friend who can't be away from an espresso machine for longer than 48 hours.
Noting another layer of awesome, this route penetrates deep into the heart of famous mountain bike country, which comes with three premium mountain bike towns (Oakridge, Bend and Sisters). If you have the time, will and resources, you could make this an equal parts cycling tour and mountain bike trip. Complete bike gluttony!
The splendors of this ride do not come for free. You will sweat for the superior views, secluded pedaling and ecstatic descents as you bag numerous mountain passes. That, of course, makes leaning back in an Adirondack at the end of the day, with a frosty beverage in hand, all the more euphoric.
