Our century route uses 18 miles of the Sisters-Smith Rock State Scenic Bikeway, and winds through diverse terrain across mostly low traffic, rural roads. Though the terrain may at first seem gentle, this is a harder century ride than many people anticipate. If you cannot average at least 15 mph on the flats, we suggest you consider the 75-mile route instead.

34-mile gravel route
This 34 mile out-and-back route features rugged terrain and breathtaking views. Riders begin by heading west on Skyliners Rd for just under two miles (the only non-gravel section of the ride) before turning north onto NF-4606. After a drop to cross Tumalo Creek the route travels mostly uphill going north, and follows along mostly smooth stable gravel to the first aid station at just over 9 miles from the start. A mix of pine forest with the occasional patch of old Juniper should keep things cool, and peekaboo views of the Cascades will keep the rider motivated. The route ends with an epic view of North and Middle Sister.
Please note that while the roads are generally in good condition, there are some patches of loose material and some bumpy descents. This route has a couple of challenging climbs, and less experienced riders may enjoy just riding out to the first aid station and then return to the venue.
