The Best Bike Ride in America

Day 1 – Saturday, July 9

“Follow Flats to Falls” 14/34/55/68 miles

From the home base of Oregon State University in Corvallis, the centermost town of the Willamette Valley, you’ll head west toward the Coast Range. The short and medium routes take mostly flat, quiet roads through agricultural and forested areas, as they cruise past many small towns. The long route goes father toward the coast and includes some short climbs and long descents as it follows a peaceful single-lane road along the south fork of the Alsea River and stops for a break at Alsea Falls. All routes eventually join together before heading back to camp for the night.
