The Best of Oregon Riding

Did you know Oregon has the only Scenic Bikeways program in the nation? Our unique Scenic Bikeways program features routes suggested by locals so you know you’re getting the best of the best when you ride an Oregon Scenic Bikeway. These routes have been officially reviewed, ridden and adopted, and each one provides inspiration for planning a two-wheeled vacation in Oregon for visitors and residents riding here for the first time or the fiftieth.
 

Painted Hills Scenic Bikeway

Bicycling through the Painted Hills reveals millions of years of history in the layers of earth, one color at a time. The hills get their name from the delicately colored stratifications in the soil of yellows, golds, blacks and reds, formed by shifting volcanic islands. A closer look reveals ancient plant and wood fossils. This Oregon Scenic Bikeway connects all three units of the John Day Fossil Beds, which hold the world’s best fossil record of the Age of Mammals (the last 50 million years) and exhibit a dramatic record of past climate change.
 


Old West Scenic Bikeway

The Old West Scenic Bikeway offers a rich combination of ponderosa-pine forests, scenic rivers, abundant wildlife, fossil geology and sunny climate. A vast majority of the route is in Grant County on minimally used roads. Ten additional rides branch off of the Old West and provide an additional 800 miles of “ultimate road ride” experience. Much of the Old West Scenic Bikeway follows two branches of the John Day River.
 

Blue Mountain Century Scenic Bikeway

The route is rich in history — Heppner was founded by Irish immigrants in 1887 — and initially follows the Blue Mountain Scenic Byway, rolling through valleys before climbing east through the Umatilla National Forest and then offering a thrill-ride descent to Highway 395, near Ukiah, where you can find overnight accommodations, a grocery store and a cafe. There the route turns north, transitioning from forest to rangeland before heading west along Highway 74 through more of Eastern Oregon’s rolling hills and back to Heppner.
This route offers plenty of climbing — the top of the Umatilla Forest section is more than 3,000 feet above Heppner. But while the hills are long, they are not that steep. Take your time and enjoy the ride, because you’ll have plenty to look at.
