Take some time and visit the Discovery Garden at River Forks Park...a treat for the senses.

Umpqua Do-It-Yourself Century

Loop Through Oregon’s World-Famous Umpqua Wine Region

 

This ride is truly a do-it-yourself century, a favorite of the Umpqua Velo Club, with lots of options to visit vineyards and wineries along the way and to enjoy hilly vistas along some wonderful, scenic roads.  The 110-mile route circles north of Roseburg, through Sutherlin, Oakland, Yoncalla, Drain, Elkton, and Tyee, Oregon.  All of these places offer food, drink, and lodging.

The Oregon countryside around those communities is a beautiful mix of farms, ranches, and forests, so you will not always be near services.  Be sure to carry what you need for your ride.  Many of the roads will have narrow shoulders but also usually have low traffic volumes.

You will start and finish at River Forks Park near Roseburg, Oregon.  River Forks Park has restrooms, a pavilion, and lots of parking.  It is also located near Melrose, Oregon, the home to numerous wineries and Kruse Farms, a local farm produce stand with, in-season, u-pick opportunities, fresh vegetables and fruits, and delicious home-made pies.  Many internationally famous wineries exist along the route.  Just follow the blue signs to visit delightful tasting rooms.  Some may deliver your wine purchases to your hotel or other lodgings.

For bike repairs and accessories, visit Canyon Creek Cycles and Waldron’s Outdoor Sports in Roseburg or the Elkton Bike Station near Elkton.

To get to River Forks Park, you take Oregon I-5 Exit 125 and turn West onto Garden Valley Road.  Go West about 5 miles passing the Grange and the Roseburg Country Club and then, after crossing the North Umpqua River, turn left on Old Garden Valley Road.  Go about a mile and see the signs on your left to River Forks Park.
