If you are looking for a road bike tour that offers majestic views and pushes your physical limits, look no further than our Mt Bachelor/Crater Lake road bike tour.
Our mount Bachelor/Crater Lake Road Bike tour is simply unmatched for its smart nuances, expansive dimensions and dynamic layers, as we interpret and experience the best wilderness stretched across Oregon’s bejeweled interior.
Sweeping into Crater Lake National Park, it’s a stretch as much of big muscle groups as of one’s vocabulary: specifically for a synonym to aptly describe the otherworldly blue water beneath our cycling route.
From the deepest lake in the Western Hemisphere—and third lowest in the world—our peloton ascends to the base of Mount Bachelor, (20-miles southwest of Bend). There we behold an aloof 9,068-ft nobleman: seemingly detached from the nearby Three Sisters, a tight band of 10,000-ft volcanic peaks.
Beyond Bachelor’s bold if insular prominence, “the little volcano with a big view”, we sweep past snow-fed lakes on a sinewy circuit of roads where astronauts trained a generation ago, preparing for Apollo missions.
Bachelor and the adjacent 1.8-million acre Deschutes National Forest wield a fantastic array of outstanding, yet little used backcountry roads, scenic routes and historic byways. Crossing three Oregon counties, the wilderness on the Cascades’ eastern shadow nurtures sublime waterfalls and huge stands of soul stirring evergreens.
In the cool high country air, you can’t help but be fueled by all manner of major contentment. From the churning ambient of the Deschutes River, to the dazzling visual of Smith Rock, one of Oregon’s Seven Wonders, a mix and match of soaring spires and sheer tufts of basalt.
As we collectively inhale this landscape, Smith Rock—the birthplace of modern rock-climbing—ultimately takes our breath away; projecting lengthy silhouettes, from its cathedral like spikes and pinnacles onto an already staggering sunset. Bravo, Oregon.
