Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway Guide Now on Web

I got an email from Alexandra Phillips, who is the Oregon Parks and Rec Coordinator, letting me know that the new online guide to the Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway is available and ready for use! Here is the official press release that will be issued Thursday, for your sneak peak viewing:

Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway guide now on web

An information-packed guide to a newly signed Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway is now online at www.oregonscenicbikeways.org.

Intended to provide cyclists with all the guidance needed to follow the 127-mile route, the online tour includes printable maps as well as information on places to camp, historic points of interest, side trips and diversity of agriculture seen along the way.

The northern end of the bikeway is at Champoeg State Heritage Area, the site of an 1843 meeting that led to Oregon’s first provisional government. From Willamette Mission State Park to the south, it continues southward on a revised route east instead of west of the Willamette River through Salem, Albany and Brownsville. The south end of the route is in Armitage County Park north of Eugene.

The web guide divides the bikeway into four segments: Champoeg State Heritage Area to Salem; Salem to Albany; Albany to Brownsville and Brownsville to Armitage County Park. The maps include elevation profiles of each segment and detailed maps of Keizer, Salem and Albany.

First conceived by Cycle Oregon, the Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway is Oregon’s first and, thus far, only designated Oregon Scenic Bikeway. It is recognized as a prototype for future state scenic bikeways—routes that offer cyclists access to outstanding scenic, historic and natural settings. The Oregon Scenic Bikeway Committee, established in 2008, is charged with designating such routes after evaluating nominations by the public. ###

That’s all good for north to south, but are there any maps going easterly or westerly? The last two days I’ve been riding on the road that goes from Keizer to Silverton. Granted that’s only 20 miles east, but there is some awesome scenary and some great historic places out there. I’m sure you could go farther east and the quality of the ride would not diminish.
