Cycle the Lakes will not be held in 2017. We are hopeful of having it again in 2018. In the meantime, we invite you to come to Cottage Grove and enjoy the great cycling opportunities we have locally. Our web site will be active until June 20, 2017. Until then, you are welcome to go to our “Route Information” page and download maps and cue sheets of our five established routes. You can also download GPS versions of each route that can be installed on Garmin bike computers.
There is a link on the “Route Information” page for the Row River Trail (a rails-to-trails conversion) bike path of 16 miles that begins in Cottage Grove and goes out along Dorena Lake. You can also find a link to the Covered Bridges Scenic Bikeway that is part of the Oregon Department Park & Recreation Scenic Bikeway Program. This ride also includes the Row River Trail and goes past some Covered Bridges in and around Cottage Grove.
In addition to our established routes, there are many great routes in the area that feature low traffic and a variety of riding experiences. Come and enjoy our low traffic route options and our unique historic downtown!!
