Tour de Lane Offers first Bicycle Ride to the Oregon Coast

Wednesday, June 03, 2015

 

Clear to the Coast marks Tour de Lane's first bicycle riding adventure to the Oregon coast. This three-day, non-competitive ride will showcase the beautiful coast range on nearly car-free roads. 

Cyclists will see all of Lane County's geographic drama on display in this ride- farmland, mountains and ocean. 

Riders can also enjoy a beer on the beach in Winchester Bay and get a shuttle back in time for saturday night's catered dinner. 

The three day festival has multiple rides of varying length and difficulty. On the Bike Builder's'Tour riders will have the chance to visit three, local, high-end bicycle manufacturing facilities. The Wine Country Ride will take cyclists through some of the many award-winning wineries in the area. And finally, the Supported Century ride will take cyclists to the Oregon Coast.

The events kick off at 7:00 a.m., Friday, July 31 through Sunday, August 2 until the last rider returns. The ride showcases the beauties of Lane County including Fern Lake, Springfield, RIchardson Park, Eugene and Junction City. Visit Tour de Lane's website for more information.
