Scenic Bicycle Tours in Pendleton County
   

All tours are available as printable PDFs.



One of the best ways to experience Pendleton County is from the seat of a bicycle. The staff at Pendleton County Guide has mapped out a dozen tours in various parts of the county to sample the variety of its scenic treasures. These tours vary in length and degree of difficulty, but all are suitable for casual riders.

All tours are loops and originate at locations which provide ample parking. Three of the tours utilize small segments of main highway; all the others are on secondary and tertiary roads — some of which are packed gravel and very lightly traveled.

 

These loops were laid out for cyclists, photographers, naturalists, artists, botanists, bird watchers and any others who want to enjoy leisurely rides in the country without competing for road space with large trucks and fast-moving vehicles.

As an aid to choosing your tour, the distance and altitude gain of the significant ascents are given below. To calculate the average gradient, divide the gain by the distance traveled.

Of course, if you don't own a bicycle, these tours can be taken by automobile— allowing one to explore the back roads of Pendleton County effortlessly. Please drive slowly and pass bicyclists with care.
