Local Cycling Routes

The Mid-Valley Bicycle Club routes table includes over 60 Willamette Valley area cycling routes used for our weekly rides. Open the routes folder for bulk access to our collection of route files or browse the area map of Benton County, embedded below, for a general view of our region.

The routes table is sorted by distance and organized by elevation gain (spreadsheet TABs for Flat, SomeHills, Hilly and Other). Each ride links to an associated turn-by-turn PDF formatted Route Sheet, and all routes (except those in the Other category) start and finish at the Osborn Aquatic Center in Corvallis Oregon.

GPS

Our existing route sheets are gradually being converted to location tagged route & elevation maps. These will be linked into the routes table, along with GPX and other exchange format representations, as they become available.

The Benton County area MAP that follows (boundary data provided courtesy of Benton County Maps/GIS) shows location markers for various Benton County Parks. Use icons in the header to access the slide-out menu for a map key, or to open the map for a full window view.
