Adventure on Two Wheels: Bike Events

Pendleton bike week

Pendleton Bike Week fun for motorcycles and the people who love them

Motorcycle enthusiasts will love Oregon’s smaller highways and the amazing scenery that goes with them. Light traffic and friendly people are a part of the perks of riding in Eastern Oregon. Enjoy great hospitality from local retail shops, dining spots and lodging businesses along our many routes for riding. Every third weekend in July, Pendleton Bike Week hosts its annual Rally & Races with the support of local businesses and surrounding communities welcoming all motorcycle enthusiasts. Discover Pendleton and nearby communities, and the rich history they offer while you adventure on two wheels through Eastern Oregon.

Umatilla County on Wheels

Pack the Panniers for a beautiful ride on country roads

No matter where you ride your road bicycle in this gorgeous county, stunning and scenic views are all around you.

The rolling and waving wheat fields of Umatilla County and the glorious peaks of the Blue Mountains provide a peaceful and amazing backdrop to your ride. Cyclists of all levels will find something to suit them, and just about any road in our region makes for a great ride.

Enjoy an easy loop east of Pendleton or explore the rolling fields around Athena and Helix. Marvel at the beautiful Columbia River at Hat Rock or take in the breathless views and challenge of the Cabbage Hill Climb. The choices are endless!

The organization Pendleton on Wheels is pleased to offer a map of favorite routes. See pendletononwheels.org.
