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 43rd anniversary of the Loop Tour, and will honor the memory of Benton Richardson. Participants will enjoy the scenic beauty of Oregon's dramatic coast. It will also offer a third, unsupported tour of the bucolic San Juan Islands for those who hunger for more.

Keep an eye on EVENT NOTICES for the latest LOOP information & registration schedule.

Read the Participant Guide at guide.looptour.org for lots of useful and important information about the tour. The Loop Tour is run TWICE each summer; typically the first one ends on the last Sunday in June and the second one ends on the first Sunday in August, but schedules can vary. Gear and equipment SAG is available, and the route is normally a 400-500 mile loop somewhere in Oregon, but again, this can vary.
