Issaquah, WA, Feb. 14, 2013 – Bicycle Adventures, a Pacific Northwest-based active travel company specializing in two-wheel tours in North America, Hawaii (the Big Island) and New Zealand, announces a brand-new way to cycle from the foothills of Oregon’s Cascades to the Pacific passing through 21 covered bridges and averaging 25-50 miles each day.

The company also offers another round of its popular Pub and Pedal Tour culminating with the 25th Annual Oregon Brewer’s Festival in Portland. See:
While it’s anyone’s guess which are the true kissin’ bridges, cyclists will be encouraged to snuggle up to trusses that span tributaries of, among others, the Willamette that gives its name to one of the West’s most important agricultural valleys. The per person double rate for Oregon’s Covered Bridges Classic is $1,995 with two six-day departures on June 23 and July 27. The rate includes accommodation, most meals, wine tastings and more. The trip begins and ends in Eugene, home of the University of Oregon Ducks (think football) and Nike. A highlight of the tour is dinner at King Estate, a premier certified organic, sustainable winery in the Willamette Valley.
Pub and Pedal – Portland Tour is a five-day beer and biking marathon averaging 45 miles per day, beginning and ending in Portland and spanning the idyllic Oregon Coast to the hop-vines of the Willamette Valley and the Columbia Gorge. The finale is the Brewer's Festival in Portland's Waterfront Park.  The departure date is July 23. The per person double rate is $2,495 inclusive of accommodation, nearly all meals, pub samples and entrance to the festival. Stops include Astoria, the oldest settlement in the West, a tour of Heater Allen's artisan brewery with samples of handcrafted lagers and Independence’s Rogue Farms Micro Hopyard, on land that once hosted the old Alluvial Hop Farm. Independence was for a great many years the "Hop Capitol of the World."  Rogue's Micro Hopyard is one of the few remaining outposts of a very traditional way of life.
