Tygh Valley to Madras
Wasco County, OR, US

Route Overview:

Cycle Oregon

Best Bike Ride in America

77 mi. 6,013 ft.

“Cowboys and Indians”

This route includes plenty of the windy wide-open. After a “good morning-legs” climb leaving Tygh Valley, head to the Warm Springs Reservation for a taste of the high desert. Big rollers will make you appreciate gravity’s power, and you just might see wild horses. Kah-Nee-Tah Resort provides an oasis; in the afternoon enjoy splendid views of Pelton Dam and Lake Simtustus before taking on one of the toughest climbs in Oregon before finishing in Madras.
