Mountain and Road Biking in Oregon

Pump up your tires and pedal Mt. Hood Territory for a complete cycling vacation. Meander paths through historic river valleys, past vineyards and along ridge-top panoramas. Rent a bike, and tour historic sites and breweries in town. Grit your teeth on gut-wrenching technical trails.

Mountain bike awesome singletrack and flow trails for any skill level at Sandy Ridge Trail System. Go cross-country in Table Rock Wilderness and the Molalla River Valley. Ride a chairlift to the Mountain Bike Park at Skibowl to build your skills, or blast downhill on the many trails.

Ride the road. The Territory is home to the Cascading Rivers Scenic Bikeway, a winding and climbing route that follows the Clackamas River along low-traffic roads.  Every year, the Portland Wheelmen Touring Club hosts the Pioneer Century ride in the hills, valleys, and farm fields around Canby.  Other backroads and Mt. Hood National Forest roads are a roadie’s dream, especially the ones that wind past roadside farm stands.

There’s more. Fat biking. Gravel grinding. Bikepacking. BMX racing. Urban rides along shared-use paths. Cyclocross races – bring your cowbell.  Navigate with The Territory’s Bike It! Map. Catch the Mt. Hood Express bus with your bike, and be driven between Sandy and Timberline with stops at riding areas along the way.
