An incredible adventure ride that was part of the Cycle Oregon route some years ago! Make sure you have support on this one because after you leave the quaint small towns of Yoncalla and Drain, you’ll see very little civilization until you near the end of this century! Just outside Drain, a steep climb through timber country along the first few miles of Upper Smith River Road will challenge some riders. But once that hill is conquered, you’ll have a long, leisurely, rolling ride into Reedsport and Winchester Bay with some great river views and often shaded roadway. The road is paved for almost the whole length, but some areas have potholes to watch out for. Remember! This is an adventure ride. Watch out for possible truck traffic. And bring adequate supplies.
