Sisters - Lower Bridge paved bicycle route
Length: 40 miles (with extensions up to 62 miles) Surface: Paved (chip sealed) road with light traffic
Description: A good spring and fall ride, when the weather makes mountain riding unattractive. An out-and-back through rolling countryside dotted with horse ranches and llama farms, with great mountain views, especially on the return. Take Hwy 126 east from Sisters, turn left (north) on Goodrich Rd, then right (east) on Edmondson Rd, which becomes Holmes Rd. Then turn right at the T intersection onto NW Lower Bridge Road. You can turn around at the bridge over the Deschutes River (40 miles roundtrip) or continue into Terrebonne (53 miles roundtrip) or Smith Rocks (62 miles roundtrip).
Access: Start at Sisters Village Green – take Hood St. south, right onto Hwy 20 (toward Bend) and then left onto Hwy 126 (toward Redmond).
