Aufderheide Bike Ride

May 31, 2009

A pleasant way to appreciate the scenic Aufderheide highway between Blue River and Westfir is on a bicycle. Our group of five riders biked the north side of this route between Highway 126 outside of Blue River to the pass at Box Canyon and back.

Our 57 mile ride began along the banks of Cougar Reservoir and gradually ascended the road that parallels the south fork of the McKenzie River. Slowly but surely our group completed the first half of the ride to Box Canyon. After climbing 2,700' we enjoyed a rapid descent, stopping for lunch near the river before returning to our starting point.

The weather was fine, the pavement smooth, and we encountered very little traffic. Members participating in this ride were Sue Wolling and Sam Miller (co-leaders), George Jobanek, Doug McCarty, and guest rider Jackie Murdoff.
