Oregon is the first state in the nation with Scenic Bikeways and this survey will help Oregon better understand:
 
Economic benefits of the Bikeways are to Oregon
Make Oregon an even better place to ride
Provide valuable data for statewide partners
 
The survey takes approximately seven minutes and will help improve the Oregon cycling experience for all. Answers will be kept strictly confidential and used for statistical purposes only.

 

Important Information: Scenic Bikeway routes include roads with car and truck traffic, and for cyclists that are comfortable riding in some amount of traffic. For car free riding, check out the Banks Vernonia trail on the Tualatin Valley Bikeway and the  Rowe River Trail section of the Covered Bridges Bikeway.

Cyclists must obey the rules of the road.

Every type of rider can find the ride that fits their style and mood- from family friendly to remote and challenging. Most routes are on roads with cars and trucks. For car free riding check out the Banks-Vernonia Trail section of the Tualatin Valley Bikeway and the Rowe River Trail section of the Covered Bridges Bikeway

 

Mild
A fun, casual ride that's appropriate for nearly everyone, including family groups. Little traffic and mostly flat.
 
 
 
                   
Moderate
A ride that's not for absolute beginners, but won't be a major undertaking for those who ride regularly. Varying levels of traffic, and could include some hills, but nothing overly long or steep.

Challenging

This level is for regular cyclists looking for a good, hard ride. These rides will involve a combination of length and climbing that casual cyclists would not find enjoyable.
 
Extreme
Your epic journey-type ride. You had better be in top shape, able to climb like a mountain goat and go all day. McKenzie Pass won this rating because of the elevation change and steep and curving west side. Blue Mountain Century is remote with few services and a long climb between Heppner and Ukiah.
