Visit Walla Walla
Beloved for the rural farm roads that meander through rolling wheat fields, Walla Walla is celebrated as Washington’s top road cycling destination. The nearby Blue Mountains offer experienced riders steep climbs and sharp turns to attack, while the flat lands and paved trails that run through Walla Walla’s historic neighborhoods and farmlands are perfect for when you just want to cruise. Start planning your route by downloading the Walla Walla Valley Cycling Map or City of Walla Walla Cycling Routes and Lanes. For more information you can also visit the Wheatland Wheelers Bicycle Club website. This local club provides riders with information and guidance on cycling in the Walla Walla Valley.

Visit Bend
A warm, inviting mountain getaway with a cosmopolitan appeal is what you’ll find when you arrive in the friendly town of Bend, Oregon. Majestic, snow-capped peaks adorn the high-desert skyline, making for some of the best weather in Oregon — think sun-drenched days and cool nights — along with endless options for plenty of play time. Playing in the Cascades, hiking, mountain biking, or skiing at Mt. Bachelor are just a few of the outdoor adventures you can tackle in a weekend or a week.

Visit Central Oregon
Central Oregon is home to the cities of Bend, Redmond, Sisters, La Pine, Prineville, and Madras and the resort community of Sunriver. Start your vacation planning with a place to stay. In Central Oregon you will find some of the finest outdoor adventure with places for paddling, hiking, cycling, golfing and dining al fresco in the summer. In winter, areas of the High Desert turn into a snowy playground with skiing, snowboarding, sledding and ice skating. It doesn’t hurt that, whatever the season, we are home to some of the country’s top craft breweries, unique boutiques for tax-free shopping, and world-class restaurants to please every lifestyle and budget.
