Imagine heading out on bucolic country roads, pedaling under the shade of towering ponderosas, past fragrant sagebrush, curling junipers and snow-capped peaks to arrive at an agricultural oasis for a farm-fresh lunch. Drink a glass of wine, tour the farm, and realize you have chosen the perfect day for this farm-to-table cycling tour.
Cog Wild marries our love of cycling with our passion for sustainability on this road cycling tour that follows the Sisters to Smith Rock scenic bikeway. We will start in historic Sisters, Oregon, to pedal along quiet country roads with mountain vistas and iconic ranch land to arrive at Rainshadow Organics farm for lunch.
They are a self-sufficient full-diet farm, with dozens of varieties of certified organic vegetables, herbs, berries, flowers, and grains. On their 80 acres, they also have pasture-raised, non-GMO fed pork, chicken, eggs, turkeys, and beef. Enjoy the scenery, relax with a cold local beer, and enjoy a nourishing meal and short tour of the grounds before we hit the road again.
The second half of our ride takes us further east alongside a fluffy alpaca farm, cool and clear watering holes, and a teeming wildlife sanctuary before arriving at the iconic Smith Rock. Admire the monolithic features as you pedal the last few miles into the park where we will have time to celebrate the end of the ride and to take in the geologic masterpiece that is Smith Rock.
