Covered Bridge Bicycle Tour

Sunday, August 10, 2014 - Linn County Fairgrounds - Albany, Oregon

About the Ride

Join the Mid-Valley Bicycle Club (MVBC) for its 36th annual Covered Bridge Bicycle Tour starting from the Linn County Fairgrounds just off of I-5 in Albany, Oregon. Explore the rural roads and depending on the route, cross up to five historic covered bridges in the Mid-Willamette Valley. You'll experience scenic views, open fields, rolling hills and only a few traffic lights. You will be glad to know a large portion of your entry fee goes to support Albany and Corvallis Bicycle Education programs.

Route Options

The Covered Bridge Bicycle Tour has a route for everyone; flatlanders wanting to relax with friends, mountain goats needing to hammer out every mile possible, and everybody in between:

Hospitality & Policies

The MVBC will spoil you with our hospitality, well stocked rest stops, and top shelf SAG support. Linn County Amateur Radio Emergency Services will provide continuous, on course communications. On the longer routes you will also get a real lunch to keep you fueled. And a root beer float at the finish until 5PM! Bring your friends and enjoy a fine August day on your bike in the Willamette Valley with the MVBC as your host.

Bring a CPSC, ANSI or Snell approved helmet, spare inner tube(s), patch kit, frame pump, and tools for minor repairs, two water bottles, rain clothes for showers, and sunscreen. But leave the music players and ear buds at home. Riders using these will be asked to remove them.

Per State of Oregon Vehicle Code cyclists must ride single file when motorists approach. This rule will be enforced. Riders refusing to comply will be asked to leave the event. Please obey all applicable laws, and ride in a safe and courteous manner. Watch for slower riders and warn others when passing. Do NOT pass on the right. A parent or guardian must accompany riders under the age of 18. Tour staff have the authority to disqualify any unsafe rider from the tour.
