Community Bike Ride

None Scheduled At This Time Due to COVID-19 Precautions

Riverfront Park 

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.
