Oregon's One-of-a-Kind Scavenger Hunt



Travel Oregon and Portland Bikes have teamed up to celebrate the 7 Wonders of Oregon in a one-of-a-kind scavenger hunt. This fun scavenger hunt is a great motivator to those of us who love adventure and just need a little motivation to get out there and live it. There is a custom bike "hidden" in each of the 7 Wonders of Oregon, for you to find. Get ready, get set and go find the bikes described below in their assigned Oregon Wonder. 
  • Ahearne — Oregon Coast: This fat-tire beach cruiser will feel totally at home riding on wet or dry sand along the Oregon coast, especially if that ride ends at a beach bonfire party.
  • Argonaut — Columbia River Gorge: Built for climbing and able to handle its fair share of gravel roads, this is the ultimate bike for the varied landscape of the Columbia River Gorge.
  • Breadwinner Cycles — The Wallowas: This “29er” bike is custom-made to handle the wide open spaces of the Wallowas, with dual-purpose tires that can handle any surface as well as bags and gear designed for remoteness.
  • Ingleheart Custom Frames & Forks — Painted Hills: This bike can handle all the adventure the Painted Hills area has to offer: camping, fishing, riding and, well, looking at beautifully colored sedimentary rock.
  • Mike DeSalvo — Crater Lake: This lightweight road bike is built for one purpose: racing around the big elevation changes and varied road surfaces of the Crater Lake rim route.
  • Vulture Cycles — Smith Rock: The “Smith Rocket” is purpose-built for the challenging trails around Smith Rock. And hey, if you’re doing that other sport that is popular in the area, there’s a rope bag on the front.
  • Wolfhound — Mt. Hood: This mountain bike is good at exactly two types of riding that are found at Mt. Hood: remote back country single-track trails and lift assisted bike park riding.
