Beyond facts, maps, cue sheets and lodging and camping information, the book reads like a friend giving you advice over a beer and is a muse to all who might have even the dustiest thought that a bike journey might lead them down a strange and wonderful road.

This guide opens the door to a complete experience of Oregon from the saddle. It gives the lowdown on microbreweries, yoga studios, the best coffee shops, outdoor festivals, dinosaur museums, restaurant hot spots, hiking trails, fishing spots, cowboys hangouts, pinot noir tastings, and Crater Lake National Park. The routes explore ranges of snow-capped extinct volcanoes, river valleys laced with vineyards, wild rivers teeming with salmon and cities with some of the best cycling culture and infrastructure in the country.
