Loop Tour

2020 Event Summary - CANCELED

Rollin' n the State of Jefferson - 9 days, 350 miles

  • Loop 1: June 20-28
  • Loop2: July 18-26

The Loop Tour Committee had postponed Ridin' n' The State of Jefferson until 2021, same relative dates. Most on the committee felt that even if the logistics of the trip - camp grounds, restaurants, bike shops, bars, convenience stores, grocery stores - open up, it is too much of a risk to take 45 bicyclists into this remote area. Keeping social distancing would be nearly impossible. Sanitizing mutually handled items such as coolers, water coolers, bike pumps, door handles would be very difficult. Three of the camp grounds are vault toilets. Health care facilities might not be the best in this area. On top of all, the age of riders puts many on the trip in a higher risk category. This was a very difficult decision. We have put in a great deal of time and energy preparing for this tour, but it is not lost time as we will offer the trip next year.

The Mid-Valley Bicycle Club Loop Tour is an annual nine day cycling & camping tour in Oregon and sometimes elsewhere in the Northwest region. The first Loop Tour was held in 1976, see history.looptour.org, and it has taken place nearly every year since.

This event will mark the 44th anniversary of the Loop Tour, and will traverse the fictional (in some minds) state of Jefferson. Participants will enjoy the scenic and remote beauty of both southern Oregon and northern California.
