A few logistical thoughts about this route: Cycle Oregon rode this con?guration in six days; my friends and I did it in four— which made for some long days. One of the beauties of this ride is that there are interesting towns, with good lodging and eating options, strung out along the route at good intervals. Based on that, my suggestions for the best overnight stops are Union, Baker City, Halfway, Joseph, and Elgin. On our four-day route, we went from Union through Baker City to Halfway on Day 1; Hells Canyon (staying in Halfway again) on Day 2; Halfway to Joseph on Day 3, and Joseph to Union on Day 4.
