Covered Bridge Bicycle Tour (Albany)
August 13, 2017 from 7:00 am - 5:00 pm
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

The Mid-Valley Bicycle Club Covered Bridge Bicycle Tour is one-day cycling event in the mid-Willamette Valley. The first CBBT was held in the late 1970s, and the event features route options, rest stops, food and SAG support to match a wide range of cycling interests and skill levels.
This year marks the 39th anniversary of the CBBT. The event starts and finishes at the Linn County Fairgrounds just off of I-5 in Albany, Oregon. Explore the rural roads, and depending on which of the route options you choose, you’ll cross up to five historic covered bridges in the Mid-Willamette Valley.
You’ll experience scenic views, open fields, rolling hills, and only a few traffic lights, and you will be glad to know that a large portion of your entry fee goes to support Bicycle Education & Safety programs in the MVBC’s Willamette Valley community.
