My brother's wedding is on September 16th and I just decided that it is a good reason to do my first century. If anyone knows a good low traffic route from Eugene Oregon to Oregon City(or Portland) Oregon, please let me know.
Or is there anything like mapquest for bikes?
Thanks Mike Perrault

The 400k brevet (http://www.orrandonneurs.org/brevets/2006_EdensGate_Info.html) organized earlier this year by the Oregon Randonneurs (http://www.orrandonneurs.org) went from a few miles south of Portland in Wilsonville to the outskirts of Eugene, on some beautiful rural roads on the east side of the Willamette valley, and back to Wilsonville through Salem. You may want to follow a similar route in reverse, from Eugene to Sweet Home, Sublimity, Silverton, and then head to Oregon City instead of Wilsonville. (You will find a not too detailed map of the route of the brevet on the web site.)

there's also the first and only Oregon State Bikeway, which will take you from Eugene to Champoeg State Park.
and, while you are in Portland anyway, there is something like Mapquest for bikes:

WOW Weed Eater! Thats great! Thanks for showing me that. I suppose it isn't all nice bike only path, but I guess it'll work....(insert Eeyore voice in that last comment). I heard about bycycle a few days ago and I am very excited for it. I've heard that both Denver and San Diego have something similar. I've been riding a lot(for me at least) lately, and I've been averaging about 40 miles every other day. I've been on vacation though for the last two weeks, so I am worried that come the 5th I'll have to quit going on my adventures. Thanks again, that should prove to be really helpful.

Some of it may be bike paths, but I think it is mostly low-traffic roads. Beautiful country. I hope to ride down to Eugene and back sometime this year. Enjoy the ride!
