    Hi Folks,

    My partner and I plan to ride from Prineville South to Klamath Falls starting in Mid-May and taking 5 days to do the 225ish miles of the route. Does anyone know the current conditions? Has anyone done an early season ride already this year?
    Thanks for any information!

    We’ll be hitting this route starting over Memorial Day weekend. Would like to know if anyone has any notes on the conditions recently.

    Also interested in any notes on road conditions. I plan on doing this mid June.

    We got back late last week after doing the route in 4 days. Road conditions are very good. The red sauce section in the Deschutes is entirely manageable, especially with 2″ tires. There was a guy doing it on 35c or 38c tires and he had some trouble, but really nothing horrendous. There’s water flowing all along Trout Creek down to Ashwood. One thing to note that would have been helpful for us: the store in Beatty closes at 6pm all days. Same with the General Store in Shaniko. We slept in the covered area in Shaniko with no problems. As of early June, all the gravel on the last day’s riding from Shaniko to the Columbia Gorge is in great shape.

    Here’s a full album of photos from the trip. Feel free to send me a PM for more info.
