The Covered Bridge Bicycle Tour (CBBT) is a one day cycling event in the mid-Willamette Valley. The first CBBT was held in the late 1970s, and the event features route options, rest stops, food and SAG support to match a wide range of cycling interests and skill levels.

2023 CBBT is Sunday, August 13th, and will mark the 44th year of this excellent bicycling event!  


Please note that the 23 mile riders (Shortest route) will first check in at the fairgrounds and then proceed to Scio for the start of the ride.

Explore the rural roads in Linn County and, depending on which of the route options you choose, you'll cross up to five historic covered bridges in the Mid-Willamette Valley.

You'll experience scenic views, open fields, rolling hills, and only a few traffic lights. You will be glad to know that a large portion of your entry fee goes to support Bicycle Education & Safety programs in the Mid-Valley Bicycle Club's Willamette Valley community.

Come ride the CBBT with us this year. Bring your family, and tell your friends too!  It's hard to find a more beautiful one day ride anywhere, and the hospitality and pricing are simply the best.

Early bird registration starts January 10th (save $5 on registration) and ends March 31st.  Late registration starts August 1st (adds $5 to registration).
