Bikeway Registration Forms and Information
5th Annual Blue Mountain Century Scenic Bikeway Ride - September 17 & 18, 2016
This ride is a “supported” ride; the local bikeways committee wants to make sure that you have a great experience in our community, so we will be doing what we can to make it so! We will be arranging for meals and water stops and will arrange for community volunteers to deliver your needed items from one location to another and will provide a SAG Wagon to support you along the route all weekend!
We will be starting the official ride in Ukiah, so the “caravan from Heppner” will leave around 8 a.m. on Saturday, 9/17 and the ride will end on Saturday night in Heppner with a great BBQ meal! Sunday morning, 9/18, the ride will begin in Heppner and end in Ukiah with transportation back for those who are parked in Heppner and don’t want to “ride” back.
We will provide a list of the restaurants that are open for Breakfast on Saturday and Sunday for those who will be staying in Heppner; lunches will be ordered for Saturday and will be taken to the Vinson area where the lunch and water and rest stop will be. A chicken and rib BBQ dinner is planned in Heppner for Saturday night, starting at 6:00 p.m. at the “Gateway Café”.
You will want to call and make reservations at our motel – Northwestern Motel & RV Park at 541-676-9167 (tell them you are with the Bike ride). The nightly rate is $58.30 (including tax); RV Park is $18 per night. Once the rooms are filled, we will be finding host homes for those who are interested! If you aren’t able to get a room, please call the chamber at 541-676-5536 or email the chamber office at email@example.com and let me know so I can make other arrangements for you. There are also overnight camping, motor home or tent spots available at Willow Creek RV Park (full hookup $22; partial $18; tents $10). Please call to make your reservation at 541-676-5576.
