Length: 24 miles with one big climb
We recommend challenging yourself this summer with the final leg of the Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway, a 123 mile route. This ride starts from Brownsville, south of Albany, where there are several nice cafes, a bakery and a city park with campsites. If the weather is good, this route can be ridden at other times of the year.
Just south of Brownsville the climbing begins. Once you crest the climb on Gap Road and descend the other side, the rest of the ride is a gradual uphill to your final destination, the scenic Armitage County Park on the north end of Eugene.
The big climb is your challenge, but the rest of the ride is smooth sailing and the views are spectacular.
