Routes

Host: Linfield College, McMinnville

Day One

“South Yamhill Sojourn” (15/42/72 miles): Saturday’s routes follow the general contours of the South Yamhill River, southwest from McMinnville, including several sections of riding beside the water. The first 7 miles are shared by all, and then short-route riders take a shortcut home. The medium and long routes head to Sheridan, where the long-route riders tack on an additional loop that features a good dose of climbing. From Sheridan, both routes loop back across the river on the way back to camp.

Day Two

“Wine and Wings” (19/36/52 miles): The second day showcases several vineyards as well as the Evergreen Aviation complex, which includes a museum housing the Spruce Goose plus a water park. Everyone starts out the day heading east; the short option cuts back to the north to rejoin the other routes returning to camp. Interestingly, the medium route has the only “climb” of the day (and a corresponding descent), on its shortcut through Amity. The long route spins past several wineries and historic communities.
