Cascading Rivers Ride

In place of our annual Tour de Clack, CRBC is excited to partner with the City of Estacada on the Cascading Rivers Ride, the inaugural ride of Oregon's newest scenic bikeway. The Cascading Rivers Scenic Bikeway traverses the Clackamas River from Estacada to its headwaters and then follows the Breitenbush River into the North Santiam, ending in Detroit Lake.

The Killer Fang Ride, named after a treacherous stretch of the wild and scenic Clackamas River, is a two day road ride of 144 miles (72 miles each day) from Estacada to Detroit through the Northern Cascades with an over night stay in Detroit and a return the next day. The ride is considered challenging with an elevation gain from Estacada of over 3,000 feet and a gain of 1,700 feet from Detroit. Meals and accommodations are included with a stay in a state park or a lodge on the lake.

The Raging Rapids Ride is a 42 mile contrast in water. Beginning along Estacada, Faraday and North Fork Lakes placid waters and waterfowl will catch the cyclists eye. As the cyclist pedals east the waters quicken and volcanic rock dominates the whitewater sculpted rapids. The route has a bike lane most of the way and few hills.

The Little Riffles Ride is a 12 mile out and back route along gentle waters and several lakes mostly along a gated road with no traffic.

All rides are fully supported with sag wagons & rest stops at 15 mile intervals. An interpretive stop will highlight efforts to improve endangered fish runs, water quality improvements and forest reclamation. A celebration of the event will be held at the end of the rides and awards distributed.
