Disston to Oakridge Bike Ride

July 19, 2008

Under clear blue skies and with cool morning temperatures ideal for sustained hill climbing on bikes, our cycling threesome departed near Disston outside of Cottage Grove at 8:00 a.m.

We biked along beautiful Brice Creek upwards toward Holland Peak on remote roads with virtually no traffic. Our destination was Oakridge. After 38.5 miles and somewhere between 3,500' and 4,500' of elevation gain (depending on your method of calculation or tolerance for ambiguity versus precision) we arrived in Oakridge for a well-deserved lunch break at Subway before returning to Eugene.

If you’re seeking a challenging ride with great views, this trip is worthy of consideration. Members participating in this outing were Sue Wolling and Sam Miller (co-leaders), Lloyd McEntire, and Zola Miller shuttle driver supreme.
