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.

  • Columbia Gorge Campout Four days and three nights camping and riding on the scenic Columbia River Gorge.

  • Spring Overnight Two days and one night with both long and short destinations. A perfect opportunity to test out your gear before the longer tours of summer.

  • Crater Lake Rim Tour A three day event over a weekend in September corresponding with the annual Car Free Days on the East Rim.

  • Coast Range Gravel Adventure Four days and three nights of bikepacking in the Coast Range.
