Community Bike Ride
Bike McMinnville invites cyclists of all ages and abilities out for a Community Bike Ride to celebrate National Bike Month! Everyone from age 0-100 is welcome to bring their bicycle, tricycle, training wheels, or even recumbent bike to spend an hour together on one of two routes.
Route 1 starts at Riverfront Park
For youngsters, families, and new riders, we are inviting people to come together and ride back and forth on the Greenway. We’ll encourage intermediate, road-confidant riders to extend the route by riding over to Pepperbranch Park.
Route 2 starts at Riverfront Park
For more advanced and confidant cyclists, the route is a 7.5~ mile ride from Riverfront Park to the Warren County High School and back. The route out will pass through the Westwood neighborhood and the route back will pass through West Riverside.
Congratulations to Warren County on completing their Healthy Building Grant from TDH!
Links to the new bicycle map and routes are below. The map shows the location of new bike racks and repair stations all over town.
Stay tuned about upcoming rodeos for children to ride together after COVID restrictions have lifted! We'll be giving out free helmets and safety lights to kids and families!
