Pioneer Century Routes

The Pioneer Century is named to reflect the history of the Champoeg, Canby and Molalla areas. Rich farmland and timber brought the pioneers to this area and this same beauty draws cyclists today. The Pioneer Century offers great routes whether you seek a social ride or personal best.

9 Miles / FRONTIER FAMILY

This easy route is perfect for adults riding with children. The Pioneering kiddos can ride their own bike, be on a tag-a-long or in a trailer. View the farmlands and Cascades from quiet roads. This little ride will show the younger cyclists the joys of road riding and includes their own mini rest stop. Minor children must be accompanied by an adult. Route Map

34 Miles / ELLIOTT PRAIRIE

This pastoral course gives you all the rural splendor and quiet roads of the longer routes without any long sustained climbing. With less than 1000’ of elevation gain, it’s the perfect fi­t for the newer rider or those who aren’t quite ready for the longer distances. Route Map

62 Miles / SAWTELL PASS METRIC CENTURY

For returning riders this route will look familiar as you explore the Molalla-Canby area. You’ll ­find a total of 3390’ of elevation gain to challenge you…but those climbs are going to reward you with exciting vistas of the Mt. Hood Territory. Route Map

62 Miles / VALLEY METRIC CENTURY

This route offers a less challenging metric century for those who want some good scenic mileage without a lot of climbing. At 1880’ of elevation gain many riders will ­find this suits their needs to perfection. Route Map

100 Miles / HERITAGE 100

Our full century gives you 4,320’ of elevation gain with rest stops approximately 26 miles apart. For returning riders, you will fi­nd this loop takes you over miles of rolling hills and farmlands WITHOUT returning to the fairgrounds until mile 100. That’s right…do the entire century, then come back to the fairgrounds! Route Map

104 Miles / HERITAGE PLUS

Love to climb?…Add the Sawtell Pass Loop to your ride for 500’ more of elevation excitement. Route Map
