Well, it's official (registered official not just Facebook official). I am skipping Ride the Rockies this year to head west to Cycle Oregon and find my Pot of Gold! I am excited that my brother Jon is going to join me for this adventure -- his first week long ride and my first outside of Colorado.

Day four is an option rest day (hmmm) or loop south almost to the California state line and back (I bet we'll ride, it won't really be beach weather with highs in the 60s that time of year). On the fifth day we will follow the Rogue River inland from the coast climbing 5,000 feet up to Bear Camp and then back down to Indian Mary Park.
The final two days will take us tot he lumber town of Glendale and along the original California and Oregon railroads back to Myrtle Creek. Seven days, between 365 and 457 miles and 25,853 to 33,689 ft. of elevation gain, depending on options.
