Want to come and not ride?
Spouses, partners and friends that would like to join our week long adventure but not partake in the riding portion are welcome and there are many things for them to do while their partner is off riding. There are several itineraries we can help you put together to enjoy the beautiful Pacific Northwest too! These itineraries do require a rental car for the week. Here are some options of daily activities, meeting up with the group for nightly dinners, on a couple of the days it is also easy to meet us for lunch.
Planning a six day itinerary in the area can be divided into three days in the valley and three days at the coast, we’re in the valley days 1,2 and 6 and we’re at the coast days 3,4 and 5.

We drive back to the Valley on the late afternoon of Day 5, so a non-rider may pick to spend a final day at the beach or head back to Carllton – “the wine tasting capital of Oregon.” Carlton is a great little town for wine tasting and generally relaxing and enjoying the good life (which of course includes wine!). On Day 6 meet us for lunch and a wine tasting in a hill top tasting room, take in the spectacular views, that afternoon take time to visit the few shops in Carlton a couple boutiques and handmade chocolate and jam shop are both excellent.
