Bicycle Rides Northwest
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.
Formerly known as Oregon Bicycle Ride, Inc., BRNW was established in 1987 when Sandy Green and friends fulfilled their vision to take adventure seeking bicyclists who liked to tour on a great ride through a beautiful state. The first Oregon Bicycle Ride took 68 riders from Hells Canyon, Idaho to the Oregon Coast in 7 days.
From the days of carrying a wringer-washer and an electric stove around the back of a pickup truck, BRNW has matured its support services to include friendly SAG vans, extensive rest stops, clean toilets, hot showers accompanied by fresh towels, and terrific meals.
From the very first year BRNW (or OBR) has stood out as one of the best fully supported bicycle tours in North America. Twenty-seven years later and we have continued to get better and better. Come see for yourself. We hope you will join us for one of our rides soon.
