的 我最喜欢的路线 该系列回顾了俄勒冈州自行车运动令人难忘的标志性路线，但是随着人们对新年的热切期待，我们希望对即将到来的事情有所了解。为了赶上2021年的步伐，让我们展望未来的某一天，“骑彩绘山”的第5天 经典. It’s a layover day with three ride options, community projects and leisure time in Mitchell, or just a quick ramble from camp to take in all that geologic color. On a cold, quiet day in between Christmas and New Year’s Day, and following strict social distancing protocols, we hopped aboard a 碎石 e-bike to spend the day chasing the winter color of the Painted Hills.
To add a further twist, we’re not going to look at an entire day’s route but rather a segment shared among the routes and certainly a location everyone will flock to, Burnt Ranch Road. Just under a two-mile pedal from camp, Burnt Ranch Road starts as smooth, fresh pavement with an undulating but fast-riding profile. At 的 Painted Hills Unit intersection with Bear Creek Road the journey on Burnt Ranch Road beyond is 碎石.
现在，“gravel” in contemporary cycling culture can mean a myriad of different conditions and here you can expect a well-maintained, mostly compacted dirt surface. Sections of loose 碎石 are common and washboard braking bumps crop up preceding curves and descents as one might imagine. Unlike many rural 碎石 roads, though, Burnt Ranch Road is very wide and flat across the grade, offering multiple lines, and has good line of sight. It’s important to have good equipment here, 32c tires or larger in our opinion, and to have some experience riding off pavement. If 碎石 is new for you, the route to the Painted Hills Overlook and nearby viewpoints will be a great way to experience leaving the pavement.
自行车彩绘山（Painted Hills）是一次真正的非凡体验，而不仅仅是从它如何唤起灵魂上。那里’从人们的角度来看，这是特别的东西’用简单的答案回答时，在“俯视”视点上的s脸 “Yes” 他们看似疯狂的问题 “你真的骑自行车吗？”。骑自行车的俄勒冈人知道那个样子’只是我们如何滚动，对不对？毫无疑问，看俄勒冈州的最佳方式。
