Weekend bike tour and celestial celebration of the total solar eclipse of the sun!

The total solar eclipse to occur on August 21, 2017 will be a once in a lifetime experience. The eclipse's path of totality passes right through Salem, Oregon- lucky us! What better way to enjoy the event than with a weekend of bike camping with good friends, good food and good views?

CAMPING LOCATION

Illahe Nursery and Gardens is a micro farm specializing in rare and unusual flower bulbs from around the world. Mark Akimoff and his Daughter Anya ship flower bulbs to worldwide destinations. 

Built on an old Cherry orchard, in South Salem's Fertile Jory Hill region, the 30 year old trees still produce some wonderful Royal Ann's and Tart Pie Cherries. The farm also grows 8 different varieties of currants, and gooseberries, as well as organic Marion and Raspberries. 

The buzzing honey bee hives on the property keep it all fertilized and produce some wonderful all natural raw honey, some of which gets bottled into Cyser and Mead along with our berries. A large vegetable garden produces natural produce for the local farmers market. 

Camping amenities include cornhole, disc golf, basketball area, stocked fire wood for a communal fire pit, projection screen for a nighttime movie and gardens for strolling.

ECLIPSE VIEWING

On Monday enjoy brunch and the eclipse viewing with the Crosby family (Ben, Cindy, Harmony, Logan, the two dogs and of course the chickens) on top of Prospect Hill in South Salem, overlooking the Willamette Valley. 

The property is a thirty year old overgrown Christmas tree farm the Crosby family purchased two years ago. The views are amazing and a truly unique place to witness the once in a lifetime total Solar Eclipse.

BIKE ROUTE

We will depart Portland early Saturday morning and ride to illahe Nursery and Gardens in south Salem to camp for the weekend. 

The ~73 mile ride will take us out the Springwater Corridor to the Trolley Trail to the Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway. We will be riding the same route back to Portland at 11am after the eclipse viewing on Monday.

Riders are expected to carry their own gear for camping and extra food for Saturday and Sunday. Bike helmet, front and rear lights and extra tubes and patches are required for each rider. 

*Please note that this is an intermediate ride due to mileage and gear that you are required to carry.
