HIGH DESERT & REMOTE GRAVEL ROADS

Average daily temps range between 50-70 degrees with temperatures dipping slightly on Sunday’s course as you ride up to higher elevation in the Cascade Mountain range. The Breakaway Team looks forward to offering outstanding support during your ride at well-stocked aid stations, mechanical support on course and after your ride at the Sunday Celebration in Sisters.

Bend is home to thousands of miles of remote gravel roads where deer out number cars 10 to 1. All three days of riding offer different scenery and challenges. May is a great time of year for experiencing the beauty of Central Oregon. The air is clear, the mountains still gleam with white snow and roads have minimal dust factor. Add to that great lodging rates and you have the perfect opportunity to enjoy Bend.
