Designated Bikeways are selected from locally proposed routes and represent the "best of the best" road bicycle riding in Oregon. Every type of rider can find the ride that fits their style and mood- from family friendly to remote and challenging.

 

Important Information: Scenic Bikeway routes include roads with car and truck traffic. Bikeways are routed on low-traffic and low speed roads whenever possible, most are designated for cyclists that are comfortable riding in some amount of traffic. For car free riding, check out the Tualatin Valley Bikeway section on the Banks Vernonia trail and the Covered Bridges Bikeway section on the Row River Trail.

 

All other Bikeways are on roads with traffic. Cyclists must obey the rules of the road. It is the law and the safe thing to do.

 

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.
