Cairo to Rome

No passport needed for US residents!  This route is not only for the aspiring world traveler but is designed for the geology and astronomy buffs as well.  Bring your gravel bike or let us supply one, we recommend at least a 35mm wide tire and bigger is better for most of this route.  We will shuttle from Portland or just meet up in Ontario, OR for a shorter  shuttle to Cairo and the beginning of our three day, 136 mile ride.  We start out on pavement to get warmed up and acquainted, but hit the gravel soon enough.  We timed this tour to coincide with the Perseid meteor shower, and our first campsite should have basically no light pollution.  Our staff naturalist will be on hand for any questions you have about what you have seen so far. You enjoy relaxing in camp while our staff prepares your meal and beverages.

The ride continues through the Succor Creek canyon on our second day on the way to Jordan Valley for night two.  Check out the displays of Basque history while we set up camp and dinner, then for we will support the local economy with breakfast at a local café.

More mixed dirt and pavement for our last day.  For the history buffs we have a stop of Jean Baptiste Charbonneau’s grave on our way to our final destination, the Pillars of Rome!  Accommodations in Rome before the drive back to Ontario and Portland.

The package includes:

  • Two shuttle days
  • 3 days riding (you bike or ours)
  • 3 breakfasts/3 lunches/4 dinners

*We supply bikes but if you wish to ride your own, you will need a minimum 32MM tire for the gravel portions.

Product Description

For the aspiring world traveler, and the geology and astronomy buffs!

Day One – This is a shuttle day from Portland to Ontario and on the our camp in Cairo.  Check out this ghost town and settle in for dinner around the campsite before the ride begins bright and early the next morning.

Day Two – Ride on a mixture of pavement and gravel through amazing scenery.  We have a naturalist along to make sure that all your questions about the geology and geography of the area are answers.  This night the camp is in Succor Creek and the light show is amazing!

Day Three – The ride is mostly gravel as we proceed through Succor Creek Canyon and on into Jordan Valley.  Our presence in town increases the population by more than 5%.

Day Four – The ride is another great mix of pavement and gravel as we ride through the Pillars of Rome for a last night of spectacular camping in the desert under the stars.

Day Five – A final breakfast in camp before the shuttle ride back to civilization.  The route takes you through desert, forest and farm land so don’t put away your camera when you get off the bike.
