Service Description

The Desert Dreams tour originates in Bend, Oregon. This tour is 5 days of southeast Oregon cycling bliss. This is the route for you if you love soaking in hot springs under the stars, wildlife, mountain top vistas, geological wonderlands, and riding on mixed surface terrain. Tour highlights include the historic Frenchglen Hotel, Kiger and East Rim overlooks at Steens Mountain (a fault-block uplift), huge skies and open spaces, the Alvord Desert, Alvord Hot Springs, Crane Hot Springs, and Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. Participants should have previous multi-day cycling experience and be comfortable riding 4-8 hours per day for 3 consecutive days. Daily rides range from 42-81 miles (68-130 km). The most challenging climbing day contains 6,246 ft (1,904 m) of cumulative elevation gain. We have carefully designed the tour with support stops that allow a rider to opt out of a portion of the hill climbing and/or route distance, depending upon an individual rider’s preference.
