Columbia County features some great, bicycle-friendly backroads, from rolling paved roads through the old Oregon timberlands to farms, alongside open fields and pastures and the majestic Columbia River. There is an option to ride the historic un-paved Crown-Zellerbach trail (17 miles of which will be featured on the ride as an OPTION). Add charming rural towns, and you have the perfect backdrop for a fun and epic bike ride and an instant classic! Please note that both the Metric Century and Century ride will be on PAVED roads.
