The folks at the Travelodge have been very accommodating to our group in the past, allowing us to use their breakfast room throughout the night. The group room will be used for checkin, showers, and naps for those who need it. We encourage you to nap before attempting any driving, please!

The 400K route starts just north of the Willamette River and heads south into the Willamette Valley as far a McKenzie. The route is fairly flat, and in some locations, dead flat. Controls will be in Scio, Sweet Home, Mohawk Post, Harrisburg and Independance. You'll see a 6 covered bridges, lots of farms, some forests and generally you're very close to the Willamette River. Route similar to 2006 with some new, rollier, and quieter roads we learned about from our Mid-Valley randos.

The 200K event with the 400K and you'll follow the same course as far as Scio Leaving the fun of Scio, you then head back north to Newberg by way of Jefferson, Aumsville, and Gervais.

In and about Newberg. There is a 24-Hr Sharis and usual Fast Food fare. Pascale's Italian is a pizza and pasta favorite for years.
