Bellas and Fellas Elk Lake Loop Road Ride
July 6, 2022 @ 2:00 am - 9:00 am
This 64 mile loop with 3,300 feet of climbing is suited to experienced riders. Fellas are welcome to join us.
The ride will follow Hwy 40/Three Trappers Road from Sunriver to the Hwy46/Cascade Lakes Hwy. We will regroup at mile 20. From here the road gradually climbs to Elk Lake. At approx mile 40, there will be a break at Elk Lake Resort where a small selection of snacks/drinks may be purchased. (We will not eat at the restaurant.) Then the fun really starts as we climb our way up towards Mt. Bachelor. The final 20+ miles of this ride are all downhill back to Sunriver on Hwy 45.
There are restrooms and water at the start. The ride will leave from the parking lot at the Bike Barn at 9am. As always, I will lead from behind. Call Catherine 541-280-1586 or email
[email protected] with questions.
Bella rides are “no-drop” rides and no one will be left behind. In consideration of others, we do ask that you choose an ability level that is close to your skills. If you choose to leave the group by going significantly faster or taking a different route, you have an obligation to let the leader know. When you leave the group, you are on your own.
