The ride out of sisters to McKenzie pass before they open it to cars!
I'll try to hit the Ronde and La Doyenne.
Thanks for reminding me about heading up the McKenzie. I think I have a couple of good routes to get there from Springfield, depending on how much and how course of gravel one can tolerate.
Another Freebie (mostly), Crater Lake Rim Ride (car free). I spent far more time on the road heading there last year than actually up on the rim, but also found a great hill for "training". So, with some luck, I'll head back to Sharps Creek before the Ronde.
And for commercial rides:
Perhaps Tour de Lane.
I've been avoiding the "Reach the Beach" ride since they've stopped supporting the Monroe and Salem starts.
