Pendleton Century Farms...
Behind the beauty of the waving fields of grain that cover eastern Oregon are the stories of hardy early farmers. They saw the potential for farming in this wide-open landscape. We celebrate those who founded the farms, and who still farm the same land through their descendents 100 years later, by designating their legacy as Century Farms.
Century Ride of the Centuries will take you past a number of these beautiful farms and ranches rising from Pendleton into the Blue Mountain foothills. You'll also travel through the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation where residents with even deeper roots live on lands their ancestors have occupied for thousands of years.
Our signature sponsor, Wildhorse Resort & Casino, will provide the starting and ending point for all three rides. Breakfast on all three days and Sunday's dinner will be provided in Wildhorse's banquet rooms.
Our rides range from 52 to100 miles, and every day has an “Easy Rider” option of 25 miles or so for those who want to take it a little easy. See our maps page for more information about our routes.
A variety of accommodations are available at the Wildhorse Resort and Casino. A variety of motels and a few B&Bs are available in Pendleton; see the Chamber of Commerce web site for a list.
The Wildhorse Resort & Casino has opened a beautiful new10 story addition which includes suites in several configurations. An nice RV park is also available, and tent campers may camp for free.
