Powers, Oregon

 

The Tour de Fronds is one of the most beautiful cycling events in Oregon. The Tour is your choice of scenic rides on low-traffic roads in Southern Oregon’s beautiful Coast Range. From your saddle enjoy views of old-growth forests, wildflowers, waterfalls, rivers, streams, and mountain vistas.

The Tour is well-supported with many and varied snacks and beverages available at each Check-In area.  A large meal after the tour is included in your registration.

The Tour de Fronds transverses Oregon’s premier Glendale/Powers Bicycle Recreation Area, a project of USDA Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management.

Seven rides are available.  Asphalt rides include 30, 456377, and 117 mile long rides with different climbing and grade challenges (see tire recommendations).  Two rides are asphalt/gravel rides including a metric century to the Rogue River/Old Agness Store as well the 55-mile Big Tree/Flannagan Prairie ride.

The Tour de Fronds is completely volunteer run.  All proceeds are distributed to local organizations that are dedicated to Powers community improvement.  

In 2016, the Tour de Fronds distributed more than $5000 in proceeds.  Beneficiaries included:

  • Lions Club - funds used to bring the a mobile eye doctor to our elementary school to screen children and provide glasses, pay for Cub Scout administration fees, hearing aid purchases, purchase community fireworks for our 4th of July White Cedar Days celebration, and purchase the City of Powers Christmas lights.
  • Lioness Club - a community defibrillator was purchased which as already saved numerous lives.
  • HAM Radio Club - these volunteers track the progress of every TdF rider and ensure quick communication in case of emergencies.
  • Powers Cheerleaders - these young ladies (elementary grades) bring school spirit to Cruiser football, volleyball, and basketball games.

As you ride, thank a volunteer.  Without these dedicated people, the Tour would be unable to continue and unable to bring support to these community organizations.
