There's a little-known secret about cycling in Oregon: Some of the best riding in the state isn't in Portland or even along the Pacific Coast. You have to cross the Cascade Mountains and head into the open country of Eastern Oregon, where cows in the road constitute a traffic jam, and where the impressive scenery shifts between ponderosa pines and basalt rock. The Old West Scenic Bikeway is a beautiful, challenging, 175-mile loop through rural Eastern Oregon. It passes through 10 small communities and offers, in Matt's words, "big-sigh riding; every time you round a corner, you take a big sigh and recognize how lucky you are."
