    Looking for a good ride in Oregon....

    in the spring/early summer. I know about Monster Cookie, but I don't think I can make that one. Any suggestions?

    This site does a good job tracking bike rides in Oregon and Washington. He appears to me to be in the process of adding 2009 dates, but if you can check the 2008 dates you can probably figure out what the 2009 dates will be....

    Here's another source (click on the guides on the upper right hand corner of the home page)..

    I really liked doing a circle ride transversing Klamath Lakes, Medford, and Crater Lake. Great scenery.

    Ride around Clark County in Vancouver, WA? I think it's the first Saturday in May. The Portland Wheelmen's Pioneer Century kicks off June.

    The Pioneer Century is a great ride. It has one major climb that kicked my butt last year and convinced me to shut it down after finishing the 55-mile loop, but I am determined to make the full 100 this year.

    +1 Crater Lake... Scary fast with dropoffs (when the snow's gone), one of the 10 Best Day Rides according to Bicycling Magazine (April 1988 written by my Dad).

    Mind the gap!

    Lots of snow, so go as late into the summer as you can.
