Stay Safe

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.

This meandering route starts in the Willamette Valley and then winds its way south past vineyards, through majestic stands of trees, over rolling hills and beside clear streams. This was Day 1 of the 2006 Cycle Oregon Weekend Ride, and it pairs up with Oakland-to-Eugene for a nice two-day trip.

Start anywhere in Eugene and connect to the bike path heading straight west (mapped here on 11th Ave.) before heading south to connect to Lorane Highway. You’ll pass through (or near) Lorane, Curtin, Drain and Yoncalla on the way. There’s a good mix of valleys and hills, with enough climbing to make it challenging.

Enjoy Oakland’s picturesque and historic downtown. If you want a motel room, your best bet is in Sutherlin, which adds just a few miles to the route.

Motorized Vehicle Traffic: Light to moderate

Seasons: All

Comments

  1. I would avoid Chambers and take an alternate route at the beginning (apparently there’s a massive hill, but if you’re feeling adventurous…). Other than that, this is a beautiful ride. There are some really awesome views. For most of the trip you have to be on the highway because there’s no shoulder, but the traffic wasn’t too bad and all the drivers were courteous. The part on Aldous Ln. was super sketchy looking so I just cut over to Hwy 99 S and avoided it altogether (this only adds a couple of street blocks on to the mileage so it was no biggie). If you’re considering doing this ride, I’d say go for it! I had a great time!
