Salmon Cycling Classic
5000 foot elevation gain (on the 80K)! Gravel stretches! Quiet narrow, rural lanes. FANTASTIC visuals one after the other of Mt. Hood, the surrounding scenic valleys, and incredible country estates! And as a “fondo” you’ll have the OPPORTUNITY TO SOAK IT ALL IN and REALLY ENJOY THE MOST OUTSTANDING RIDE IN THE CLOSE-IN PORTLAND METRO AREA!!! WOW! It just doesn’t get better than this!!!!
Cedar plank salmon dinner (and fresh strawberry shortcake) to all finishers!
Both the 100K and the 50K share the identical course over and around the first mountain, and until it passes back through the City of Wilsonville where on the west side the 50K turns back towards Memorial Park. The 100K goes on to include going up and around a second mountain before returning to the park. It will have a total elevation gain of over 5000 feet!
The course itself includes gorgeous vistas; shaded, tree-lined narrow rural roads. It rolls by beautiful homes and country estates, peaceful equestrian fields and vineyards, and affords some stunning outlooks towards the surrounding broad, fertile valleys – and don’t forget some excellent views directly towards snow clad Mt. Hood. And the whole course is conveniently just a few miles away from the busy streets of downtown Portland!
