Oregon Scenic Bikeways
Oregon’s innovative Scenic Bikeways program offers the very best scenic, historic, natural and cultural experiences in Oregon — all from the seat of a bike. Similar to the Scenic Byways program, which highlights key routes for cars, the Scenic Bikeways program includes the best road riding routes that have been proposed by local groups. Bikeways admitted into the program are reviewed and rated by the Oregon Scenic Bikeway Committee and determined to be the best the state has to offer. Routes are selected for diversity to accommodate riders of all levels for day trips or multi-day adventures on linear or looped routes of varying distances.
Because routes are identified, proposed and stewarded by local proponents, bicyclists looking for great routes in Oregon will know they are getting the best of the best.
