A beautiful ride up north and best done in Spring or Fall.   We leave from Madras Community Park at 10:00 (50 min drive from Bend), follow the beautiful Madras Mountain Views Scenic Bikeway for part of the way, but take a northerly turn on the way back... which is where the real fun starts. We fly down a long, gradual straightaway, then dive down a series of steep switchbacks to the bottom of Lake Simtustus, which means we then take a series of steep switchbacks back out. From there, it's on to Pelton Damn picnic area for a brief break. 

We meander past Lake Pelton and find our way to the one section of the ride that's a bit less fun: climbing up the Hwy 26 grade out of Warm Springs. When we reach the top, we turn north for a tour through Agency Plains, some of the less visited, but most beautiful areas in our neighborhood. A big clock-wise loop through farmlands and we eventually find our finish back at Madras.

Be sure to pack plenty of water and snacks for this ride.  Join us after if we are up to it at the Madras Public House
