The Central Oregon Menage a Trois – Prineville, Crooked River Canyon Out and Back

Description

Distance: 40 to 43 miles. Leaves from Stryker Park at 4th and Elm in Prineville. This is an out and back that parallels the Crooked River. It runs past farms, ranches, and a series of BLM campgrounds. At the furthest extent is the dam that forms Prineville Reservoir. Bring something to eat for a stop at the last campground, Big Bend, at the 20 mile mark. This also is the only spot for water on the route. There is nowhere to stop for food on the route.

Sign-in at the start.
Maps will be provided at the start.

If you are looking for accommodations for this event Bend is between Sisters and Prineville. Sisters is a 20 mile drive west of Bend and Prineville is 40 miles east of Bend. If you prefer to camp Tumalo State Park is 5 miles west of Bend. You can reserve camp space at state parks exactly 6 months early. State park campgrounds fill up very quickly after that 6 month time. I am staying at the Bend Riverside which shares a fence line with the park where the Bend ride starts.

Please read the Covid protocols before attending the ride. https://portlandbicyclingclub.com/protocols/
