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.

About the Grande Tour Scenic Bikeway

This 134-mile ride encompasses sections of the original Oregon Trail and takes riders near historic small-town communities in northeastern Oregon. Ride under a scented canopy of Ponderosa pine forests, past stunning views of the Blue Mountains and the Wallowa Mountains and across dramatic, sagebrush-covered rangelands near La Grande and Baker City.

The Grande Tour Scenic Bikeway is a great trip for riders of all skill levels as its roads are wide and have limited traffic. This Bikeway’s proximity to all types of services and amenities means riders can fashion a challenging non-stop ride or break the trip into leisurely segments.
