THE CHALLENGE RIDE
for those who want to ride, but don’t want to race - timed and supported
The most unique non-competitive ride in the US, the Best of Both Challenge Ride is the only recreational Fondo-style event in the US that navigates stunning road and single-track courses within one conclusive distance. This is a fully-supported route for those who prefer to ride the course at their own pace while taking in the incredible scenery and panoramas of the central Oregons volcanic lake country and the High Cascade mountains. Whether you’re with a group of friends, a family member, or flying solo, and in search of some on-course camaraderie, this recreational option opens the door for cyclists of all ages, genders, and abilities. With feed stations on the road and the trails, two roving mechanical teams to keep you on course in the event of a mechanical breakdown, the Challenge Ride option provides you with a fully chip-timed result and a healthy bag of swag from our sponsors.
