Scenic Bikeway routes include roads with car and truck traffic, and are for cyclists that are comfortable riding in some amount of traffic. Cyclists must obey the rules of the road. 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.















How to Pick the right Bikeway for you: Oregon's State designated Scenic Bikeways are carefully picked from locally proposed routes to highlight the best of the best road cycling in Oregon. Each Bikeway is then categorized so you can find the right Bikeway for the kind of riding you want: Mild, Moderate, Challenging and Extreme.

Each Bikeway has a ride description to help you pick the one you want. The maps and cue sheets contain all the route information, local links connect you to the local tourism agency in each area and the RideOregonRide.com page has an interactive map showing all the restaurants, bike shops and overnight accommodations on each Bikeway. 

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


A fun, casual ride that's appropriate for nearly everyone, including family groups. Little traffic and mostly flat.

(17 miles on paved off road path with a few road crosses, 20 miles on low traffic roads)

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.


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.
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.
