6000KM 14 days
Originally I had plans to ride down in a group, but it fell through. I had asked other groups. Their plans didn't fit my needs. So what the Hey do it Solo.
Packed up the bike with all the necessary gear to camp, since I'd be in the forested areas by choice.
I had gone down in 05 to the Gp and enjoyed going through the Cascades in Oregon.
The good stuff started after Portland. Estacada 224, Detriot 46, 22, 126, Aufderheide 19. Cranked of 850 Km the first day.
Going down 58 to the Truck Hwy 97 and on to Kalamath Falls is very boring.
I had heard and researched a supposedly paved route from Oakridge to Steamboat, which would get you on the west side of Crater lake.
Chatted with a gal at the ranger station and she proposed a route for me. Although 15 miles of it would be gravel.
Here's the route Oakridge to Steamboat
