The Maupin area has some prime ingredients for excellent cycling. Nicely maintained roads, consistently dry weather, and very little traffic in every month but July and August. And, did we mention, the scenery is incredible. Welcome to the wide-open high desert where the deer and the antelope play (literally), and steep gorgeous canyons are all topped with a big blue sky. On a day ride out of Maupin you might see: Bald Eagles, four species of Sage Brush, a 100 year old Sears and Roebuck catalogue cabin, lots of happy cows and, if you’re really lucky, our resident elk herd.
Cycling opportunities range from riding a few miles down the Deschutes River on a family swimming outing to the 46 mile Bakeoven road out and back, complete with a 2600 ft. elevation gain. Imperial River Company is ready to wine, dine and lodge you while you explore the sunny side of Oregon on two wheels.
Race Across Oregon has adopted Maupin, Oregon as a second home. See their site for the latest cycling events to come to our neighborhood. Our Imperial River Company Cycling team, along with George Thomas and Terri Gooch have mapped out some fantastic rides centered right here on Maupin.
