CX Ride: Old Ochoco Highway (Exploratory Ride!)

~ 50 miles / 4000 ft gain. Explore the Old Ochoco Highway just east of Prineville to Mitchell. This is an exploratory ride ==> meaning that I have not ridden the entire route, but from what I gather about half this ride will be on dirt roads and the other half will be on pavement (highway 26 heading east to west). The gravel road riding that I have done in and around the Ochocos has been excellent. A CX bike is the preferred bike for this ride.

I expect that our average speed for the ride will be between 12 and 16 mph. Expect a longish day - leave at 9 am, arrive to ride point at 10:30 am, ride for 3+ hours, get back to meeting point at 3:30 or later. Meet at the Big Sky parking lot on the East Side of town.

    Thank you Kevin for the time, energy, and thought you put into creating the cross tour ride we completed today. One of the best rides I've ever been on. Look forward to the next time you post a ride!

    Please post your findings - looks like a nice ride and not too far away. I'd go if it weren't for this thing I do during weekdays. Enjoy !
