The Best Bike Ride In Oregon Circles Crater Lake Every August In Southern Oregon's Crater Lake National Park
Dubbed “The Best Ride in Oregon” by Bicycling Magazine, The Crater Lake Century is an annual bike ride that traverses up and around the Crater Lake Caldera. Riders begin from the Fort Klamath Museum, where they leave every 15 minutes beginning at 6:30 a.m. Two separate routes are available, a 62-mile and a 100-mile course, both ending at the museum.
For anyone who has never visited Crater Lake National Park, Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the United States and one of the clearest. Visitors often gasp at the sheer size of the collapsed caldera of a volcanic eruption that took place 7,000 years ago, giving us a lake which is six miles wide and twenty miles of scenic cliffs that lead to the water's edge.
