If you are looking for the ultimate road bike ride in Oregon, the 65 mile one-way Aufderheide trip from Blue River to Oakridge is the perfect ride, and an overnight at the Oakridge Hostel & Guest House is a sublime way to make the excursion comfortable and enjoyable. Park your vehicle at the north end of Aufderheide scenic road, work your way up 28 miles to 3,700' elevation and then enjoy the 35 mile descent into Oakridge. Once there, enjoy being pampered by Gary and Linda's hospitality. Their facility is modern, extraordinarily crispy clean with beds which will rejuvinate your aching muscles. You have your choice of hostel-style bunk beds in a shared room or you can elect to stay in a private room. The well-lit cheerful rooms all share a common living room, which has comfy couches, tables and WiFi connections. Shared bathrooms are clean a spacious, and are situated across the livingroom. There are LOTS of them, so there was no wait. A hearty home-style breakfast of many courses set us up for our return 65 mile bike trip back to our car. The hostel was the perfect place to spend the night and made this excursion special.
