Beginning and ending in historic Drake Park in downtown Bend, the Twin Bridges Loop is one of the premier and most scenic cycling routes in Oregon. Featuring 36 miles of rolling intermediate terrain, the Twin Bridges Loop offers cyclists breathtaking views of snowcapped mountains, rolling forests, and inspiring high desert terrain.
The Twin Bridges Loop is the most popular countryside riding loop from Bend. It features rolling to flat terrain, beautiful scenery and takes approximately two to three hours to complete depending on riding pace.
The Twin Bridges Loop derives its name from the two bridges along the route that cross the Deschutes River, both showcasing lovely wetlands and surrounding ranches. The route passes through the charming town of Tumalo, a good place to break before returning to Bend.
