“Oregon is a state in the Pacific Northwest region on the West Coast of the United States. The Columbia River delineates much of Oregon’s northern boundary along Washington state, while the Snake River delineates much of its eastern boundary along Idaho. The parallel 42° north delineates the southern boundary with California and Nevada. Oregon is one of only three states of the contiguous United States to have a coastline on the Pacific Ocean.” – Wikipedia.org
The photo contributions in this article come to us from Kevin at The Dirty Freehub. You really need to visit this website. Not only is there a ton of excellent photography, but proven gravel routes in states such as Oregon, California, Montana and more. Remember, if you enjoy riding any of the Dirty Freehub’s routes, please give them some credit. Life is more than instant gratification, grabbing route data from Strava or RidewithGPS. Route planning is a time-consuming, thankless task.

If you have a nice collection of gravel cycling images from your location (originals only please, nobody else’s work) and are interested in sharing them with the Gravel Cyclist audience, please contact us.
