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. Routes listed on this website are for informational purposes and intended as a reference guide only.

We have multiple routes which offer you the challenge (or lack thereof) that you seek. If you just want a little spin through Mt. Hood Territory, try the Elliott Prairie or the Valley Metric.
Looking for some challenge? Training for something? Just need to work off some steam? Let me introduce you to the Sawtell Pass Metric or our Heritage Plus (only 4 miles longer than the basic Heritage but what a very special 4 miles they are!).
Once again, we have our friends from Catering Rides Northwest to create their delicious burritos on site. You must order before ride day so include that option as you register. You’ll be glad you did when you finish your ride and hang out at the Fairgrounds for a bit with your riding buddies.
We’ll have some vendors at the Fairgrounds to add interest and the always popular St. Josef’s Winery & Beer Garden will definitely add to your post ride enjoyment.
We’ll try to get that thermostat turned down after last year’s anomaly! And we’ll be proclaiming Pioneer Century a BAGEL FREE ride again this year. Don’t worry, plenty of carbs, just not in the form of bagels.
