Check in and breakfast are now starting behind the United Methodist Church, at 648 Orchard St. Monroe, 97456. Check-in is from 7:00am until 8:00am. Breakfast will be available between 7:30am and 8:30am. And, we ask that everyone start pedaling by 9:00am.
We know you have a long ride ahead of you, so we want you properly fueled before you hit the roads. Come early to choose from fresh, straight-from-the-garden fruit, a variety of local breads and bagels with Wild Friend’s Nut Butters, hearty Grizzlies Brand porridges, and freshly brewed Café Mam coffee. We can't think of a better way to start the day.
Each farm is equipped with restrooms, delicious food, helpful volunteers, cold water, shade, seating areas, and a place to put your bike. Fresh fruit, beautiful vegetables, homemade oatmeal cookies, and organic potato doughnuts are just a few of the tasty foods you can expect from the farms. As an added bonus, we will share some of our favorite local products with you, including Toby’s Tofu Spread, Dave’s Killer Bread, and Somersault Sunflower Seed Snacks…just to name a few.
At the end of your ride, you will be served a delicious, meal made by the coordinators of the Sharing Gardens and their community of volunteers. Using fresh produce from their garden and ingredients from Glory Bee Foods, they are whipping up a scrumptious meal that will leave you feeling full and satisfied! And, you and wash it all down with a refreshing Dry soda. Of course we didn’t forget dessert! Locally made vanilla ice cream with freshly baked, Willamette Valley & Fruit Company pies will top of your previously depleted tanks. (Actually, that is highly unlikely: you will be well fed throughout the ride!)
One hundred miles of beautiful, back-country roads that are well-marked and cyclist approved. We’ll even throw in a detailed map for easy navigation.
In case you are unable to finish the ride, we will have support vehicles more than happy to give you a ride to the finish line!
If you need help changing that pesky flat, we got your back.
Because the farms you are visiting are extremely wonderful, we have a hard time believing you won’t be tempted to buy something. Not to worry, we will have a vehicle to transport any purchased goods back to the starting line.
A reusable tote filled with some very sweet surprises from Planet Bike, Picky Bars, Dave’s Killer Bread, and others—not just a bunch of useless key chains and company pens.
