“Friday morning, I finished my little adventure by riding up McKenzie Pass.
I fueled up at the awesome Sisters Coffee shop and rode out of town just as the sun was warming up the ground, releasing the scent of the pine trees.”
“Again, all to myself past the gate closing off the pass to Cars for the next 11 miles.”
Lava flows at the top of the pass have created a unique and dramatic landscape.
“I enjoyed the long downhill ride back to town reflecting on my trip and how satisfying it all was.
I was refreshed and tired and ready to get home.” – Read Bruce’s full post here: BikeForums.net

This is a truly amazing ride. We recommend staying at a lodge on the McKenzie River side and taking a shuttle in the morning to start the ride in Sisters, then ride back to your lodge – or your car. (There is less climbing when you start from Sisters.) Hard core riders may want to start in Blue River or McKenzie Bridge and ride to sisters and back again – but that’s a pretty big ride. After the ride, you may enjoy a cold beer and a relaxing soak at a nearby Hot Springs – such as Terwilliger Hot Springs.
