Additional information for roads on Tripcheck.com

 

Mild
A fun, casual ride that's appropriate for nearly everyone, including family groups. Little traffic and mostly flat.

(17 miles on paved off road path with a few road crosses, 20 miles on low traffic roads)

 
             
 
      
Moderate
A ride that's not for absolute beginners, but won't be a major undertaking for those who ride regularly. Varying levels of traffic, and could include some hills, but nothing overly long or steep.

Challenging

This level is for regular cyclists looking for a good, hard ride. These rides will involve a combination of length and climbing that casual cyclists would not find enjoyable.
 
 
 
Extreme
Your epic journey-type ride. You had better be in top shape, able to climb like a mountain goat and go all day. McKenzie Pass won this rating because of the elevation change and steep and curving west side. Blue Mountain Century is remote with few services and a long climb between Heppner and Ukiah.
