Road Conditions

The Tour de Fronds is a back-country route, beautiful, but remote. The Forest Service and BLM roads are mostly paved and fine for road bikes, but some of the route is chip-seal.  We also recommend that you cycle with a partner and limit speed on the descents.

 

Tire Recommendations

Daphne Grove, Eden Valley Metric CenturyArrastra SaddleCruiser Loop and Agness Pass      

We recommend 25C to 32C tires as a minimum for comfort.

Big Tree - Flannagan Prairie and Rogue River - Singing Springs Rides

We recommend 26 x 1.5 or 700 x 32 tires for those riding these asphalt/gravel rides.

 

Guidelines for a safe and enjoyable ride

On Forest Service Roads, rders must: 

Wear helmets

Ride Safely. Follow the Rules of the Road.

Roads have been cleared, but stay alert to potential hazards present on the course: such as rocks, slides, branches.
