The History

Since 2016 Cycle Columbia County has worked hard to share with cycling enthusiasts all the challenging roads, trails, and beauty that Columbia County has to offer. Our goal is to put Columbia County on the map as a prime recreational cycling destination and keep participants coming back for more! As a local nonprofit, we are reinvesting funds raised into our communities with additional cycling opportunities, bike repair stations, future trail improvements, bike racks, signage, safety education, and more. By hosting the annual Columbia Century Challenge, it is one way to showcase all that our cities and towns have to offer.  To participate in our ride click on the register button below.

Route Highlights

Columbia County features some great, bicycle-friendly back roads, from rolling paved roads through the old Oregon timberlands to farms,  alongside open fields and pastures and the majestic Columbia River.  Add charming rural towns, and you have the perfect backdrop for a fun and epic bike ride and an instant classic!
