To celebrate the 7 Wonders of Oregon, we asked seven of the best bike builders in the state to build one-of-a-kind bicycles, one for each of the Wonders. And then we gave them all away.

Each week, we hid one of the bikes at the Wonder for someone to find, ride and own a piece of Oregon. Watch the videos and read below to learn more about the 7 bikes and the 7 lucky winners who were first to find them.

BIKE FOUND
Mt. Hood

Wolfhound Cycles created a mountain bike that’s good at two types of riding found at Mt. Hood: remote, backcountry singletrack trails and lift-assisted bike-park riding. Learn more.

BIKE FOUND
Smith Rock

The “Smith Rocket” was designed by Vulture Cycles for the challenging trails around Smith Rock — and there’s even a rope bag on the front for those who come for the rock climbing. Learn more.

BIKE FOUND
Painted Hills

The beautifully-colored layers of rock of the Painted Hills are mirrored in this adventure-ready bike, designed by Igleheart Custom Frames and Forks. Learn more.

BIKE FOUND
The Wallowas

Breadwinner Cycles created a “29er” bike custom-made to handle the wide-open spaces of the Wallowas and outfitted with gear for the remoteness of Eastern Oregon. Learn more.

BIKE FOUND
Columbia River Gorge

Argonaut Cycles created the ultimate bike for the varied landscape of the Columbia River Gorge: one that’s built for climbing and able to handle its fair share of gravel roads. Learn more.

BIKE FOUND
Oregon Coast

Ahearne Cycles built a fat-tire beach cruiser that feels right at home riding on wet or dry sand along the Oregon Coast — especially if that ride ends at a beach bonfire party. Learn more.

BIKE FOUND
Crater Lake

DeSalvo Custom Cycles created a lightweight road bike built to race around the big elevation changes and varied road surfaces of the Crater Lake area. Learn more.
