Leader:   Tim Koch, 488-8218, mtkoch@surewest.net        


Description:     This is a 7-days of bicycling tour.  The first day of riding is Sunday, July 31st as we leave Gold Hill, Oregon.  Our nightly stopovers include Canyonville, Laverne Campground, Coos Bay, Humbug Mountain Campground, Agness Campground, Indian Mary Campground and then returning to Gold Hill.  If we can organize it we will try to include the option of a jet boat ride from Gold Beach to Agness CG.  This will depend on the ability to carry the bicycles on the vehicles to Agness from Gold Beach.    Because of the remote areas that we will be camping in, there will be no arrangements for staying in hotels on this tour.  We will have a slide presentation from when we did this tour in 1997-98 at the next Sacramento Wheelmen General Meeting at 7PM on March 10th at the REI near Cal Expo.  Although there is no layover day on this tour, the day we ride into Coos Bay is a short day and there will be plenty of time to explore this interesting coastal town.  We will cross the Coastal Range twice on this tour.  The first time before we arrive at Laverne CG and the second time when we travel a short mileage day from Agness CG to Indian Mary CG.  Nothing is flat in Oregon.  There is a 10 miles stretch of gravel on the day travelling to Laverne CG.  The gravel stretch is downhill through some of the most scenic area of the tour and it's on a backroad with little traffic.  The tour will be limited to the first 50 riders to sign up with the first opportunity to do this at the March 10th meeting.  The cost is $300 and you must be a current member of the Sacramento Wheelmen.
