    Central Oregon 500 for fifty plus

    Hey all, posting this ride here because i am the founder/rider and am a 50 plus. I started this as something to try on the week that I turned fifty a few years back. This will be the 3rd year of running it as a organized ride and fund raiser for the Mt Bachelor Sports Education Foundation. The ride is 5 days of 100 mile rides. All rides start and finish at the same site in Bend Oregon. There are a couple of big option days available 152 miles and new this year a 160+ mile ride. We have local riders as ride guides, full daily support and a great time. Check out the links if your interested or post any questions on this thread. This is a good event to set up for a summer of strong riding.

    Enjoy


    Ride Dates: 6/4 to 6/8
    Location: Bend Oregon

    Oh, I wish. I would love to do that with you guys.

    Mind if I share with friends? That's great cycling country, and a great deal.

    I hear there's a young rider in your neck of the woods who's looking for work these days. Maybe he would like a job as a guide.

    Sounds like the kind of cycling vacation I would pick for myself! Going to have to think hard on it - price is mighty nice.

    It's a great week of riding and with the start and finish each day located in Bend it's easy, just show up and ride every day. And Chris is welcome to ride with us any day !! Registration will be limited to 40, 5 day riders plus some additional spots for 1 day riders. The limit is due to the capacity of ride headquarters (my place**. There will usually end up being 4 or 5 groups out on the ride with different riding speeds and all. Registration happens at the MBSEF web site. Looks like snow wont be a issue this year but you never know.

    Blast! Conflicts with a wedding that weekend. Well, you planted an idea in a couple of old noggins, we might just basically do a similar week unsupported in the Bend area. Such a grand place to ride, all I have done there is Tour des Chutes but I need to try more routes.

    Check out the links from the MBSEF web site to the ridewithgps site. It has all the ride routes. Mackenzie pass before the gate opens is a favorite.

    Enjoy

    I'm not a candidate, but I was just in Oregon over Christmas to visit my son. Bend is a beautiful area for cycling.
