Dufur & Friend (Tygh Valley Start)

Training Route / by Captain ‘O’

This route is the little cousin of the 5 Star route Dufur & Friend (thus, the reason for relegation to Training Route status). It is a great ride rolling through wheat and hay fields, climbing into the Mt. Hood National forest (on gravel and a rugged single lane paved road) and giving back with a 6 mile “let go of the brakes” descent. We have ridden this route and love it!
