Yamhill Gravel Loop

August 8, 2021 at 9:00 am

Description

The worst part about this ride is the long ride to the start (almost an hour from downtown Portland). But the rest of the ride is great. This route comes from Dirty Freehub site, they recommend it as one of their five-star rides (and a couple of other regular members have recommended this route). The ride has rolling hills with farmland and generally great hard packed gravel.

Gravel Bike:
You do need a real gravel bike or mountain bike for this ride. The gravel is pretty good so you can probably get by with gravel tires 35mm or larger (I’ll be riding 40mm).

Maps:
For much of this ride we are in a network of unmarked, gravel roads. Paper maps and cue sheets will definitely NOT work and will not be provided. I encourage everyone to use the RideWithGPS on their smart phone for directions while riding. Provided you don’t ride off ahead of the group, I’ll make sure no one gets lost.
