Covered Bridge Bicycle Tour, Sun, Aug 10th, Albany, OR (century ride)
Join the Mid-Valley Bicycle Club (MVBC) on Sunday, August 10, 2014 for its 36th annual Covered Bridge Bicycle Tour (CBBT) starting from the Linn County Fairgrounds just off of I-5 (Exit 234) in Albany, Oregon. Explore the rural roads and depending on the route, experience up to five historic covered bridges in the Mid-Willamette Valley. You'll have scenic views and ride near open fields and over rolling hills with only a few traffic lights. You will be glad to know a large portion of your entry fee goes to support Albany and Corvallis Bicycle Education programs. There are traditional metric and full century options (with an 85 mile option in-between) as well as a 40 mile Family Tour. For more details see CBBT.
This is a fun century ride event with great food and support. This year there are some restoration efforts underway on two of the covered bridges [http://democratherald.com/news/local...4bcf887a.html] so you won’t be able to ride across those two but you should still be able to get photos and a peek at the work going on to protect the bridges for decades to come. The CBBT route is being adjusted to accommodate these changes for the 2014 event.
this looks like a great event!
