If you’re planning a cycling vacation this summer, consider Oregon as a destination. It’s easy to bring your bicycle on Amtrak since some of the Cascades trains provide onboard bike racks (these must be reserved in advance).
Car-Free Corvallis posted a great and thorough review today of the brand new book Cycling Sojourner: A Guide to the Best Multi-Day Tours in Oregon by Ellee Thalheimer. The book sounds like a must-have item for anyone planning a cycling trip in Oregon. I haven’t read the book yet but I look forward to submitting a Suggest a Purchase form to Vancouver Public Library.
Oregon does a good job of making available cycling maps and other resources to help visitors navigate the state by bicycle.
Car-Free Corvallis also provides some detailed cycling routes and advice, including:
- Two day touring: Alsea Falls
- Two day touring with Amtrak: Corvallis to Portland via Champoeg and One-Green World
- Bikepacking from Corvallis to Crater Lake to Ashland
Happy cycling in the Beaver State!
