Magazine: Crater Lake called 'Best Ride' in Oregon

CRATER LAKE, Ore. -- Bicycling Magazine published the best bike ride each state has to offer, and a local scene won the title.

Officials chose the Crater Lake area as the best ride in Oregon.

The magazine recommends starting at Diamond Lake, powering up around the rim.

The article sites the changing elevations, the difference in scenery, and of course that crystal clear blue water as why it's Oregon's best ride.

One cyclist told the magazine that if he had one day left to live, he'd spend it riding around the rim at Crater Lake.
