As longtime lovers of cycling through Oregon wine country, Eola Hills Wine Cellars started Bike Oregon Wine Country (BOWC) in 1997. These fully supported and guided tours take cyclists along scenic backcountry roads, stopping for wine tasting along the way and concluding with a celebratory catered feast, live music and wine tasting at our winery in Rickreall.
IMPORTANT EVENT INFORMATION:
ALL BOWC RIDES START & END AT EOLA HILLS WINE CELLARS (501 S. Pacific Hwy 99W, Rickreall, OR 97371). This year, we are starting earlier to beat the heat. Check-in is from 7-8am with staggered starts. Waiver signature required upon check-in.
Rides are led by Eola Hills’ staff. Cyclists of all abilities are welcome. Our 2023 loop is roughly 30 miles and is inspired by our typical Northern Route. We will be making visits to familiar wine establishments and a few new ones. While the loop offered will be the same, we will go the reverse route every other event. Support vehicles offer a lift when needed and also serve as a carrier for any bottle purchases along the way!
