Annual Touring Events
MVBC members love to head out on our bikes and tour places we've never been before, and revisit places we love. Every year we organize several multi-day bicycle tours. We have a variety of tours for every level of ability and ambition.
Tours are open to all MVBC members. If you want to join a tour please become a member.
MVBC Hosted Tours
Loop Tour Two nine day tours each year, covering the same route, typically in Oregon, but sometimes in Northern California, Washington or Idaho. Loop Tour 1 typically starts in late June, and Loop Tour 2 typically starts in late July.
Mini Loop Tour A four day bicycle camping tour typically in early August. The tour is aimed at families and individuals who want to participate in a touring event along small roads and through beautiful country, but with limited duration and only moderate cycling challenge.
