Established as the Ride for Two Rivers almost a decade ago, Crest the Cascades Ride is now named in memory of Bjarne Holm, one of our dedicated race volunteers who passed away after serving our community for many years. This ride offers some of the most spectacular scenery in central Oregon. This ride is a can't miss event for die hard cyclists all the way through those who borrowed their friends bike and just want a nice day out. The opportunity to ride on an Oregon Scenic Bikeway (McKenzie Pass Scenic Bikeway), on a closed highway through lava flows that are thousands of years old makes this event one of a kind.
