NS 40 to Elk Lake – Road Ride – 25 miles
June 16 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Ride along the scenic Cascades Lake Highway from Forest Service Road 40 to Elk Lake Resort, a 25-mile round-trip route with 674 feet of elevation gain. We’ll ride at an easy 11-13 mph pace for advanced beginners, with better and better views of Mount Bachelor and South Sister as we get closer to the lake. The highway is usually light traffic on weekdays.
Here’s the route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/34483654
Meet at 10 a.m. on FS Road 40 about ¾ of a mile east of the highway, where there’s a bridge over the Deschutes River. There is some parking there.
