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.

Vale’s Outdoor Art Gallery has 25 murals depicting Vale’s history on the Oregon Trail on the walls of various buildings throughout the town and on four metal murals placed outside the city limits welcoming visitors. Founded in November of 1992 by individuals who were interested in revitalizing Vale’s economy and possibly providing economic growth through tourism, the Mural Society paints new murals each year. The money for the murals is raised through donations, a live auction and a street sale. In addition, the mural society receives grants, but money from the community is still its primary source of funding.
