Starting in Wilsonville’s Memorial Park, the Salmon Cycling Classic offered a free, family 25k ride that drew lots of happy riders of all ages!
RIDING FOR A CAUSE

2019 COURSE DESCRIPTIONS
90K, 60K, free 25K Family Ride. All riders have a 9:00 am start time.
All three routes feature quiet, narrow, rural lanes that invite riders to enjoy scenic country estates, peaceful equestrian fields and vineyards, and stunning overlooks of fertile valleys. The 90K and 60K offer beautiful, heavily-tree-canopied lanes and some steep downhill. All rides start and finish at Wilsonville’s beautiful Memorial Park.
The most challenging course climbs 5,000 feet in elevation, traveling up and around Petes and Parrett Mountains, and rewards riders with incredible views of Mt. Hood. This route includes a few short stretches of hard-packed gravel. Watch our high-speed VIDEO of the 90K.
This route includes many of the same features of the 90K with a less challenging climb, no gravel, and only 3,500 feet of elevation.
25K Free Family Fun Ride
The 25K, new this year, is a relatively flat course with few ups and downs. A total of about 850 foot elevation gain. Peaceful views of farmland, includes a couple of fun dips. (Children under 18 must be accompanied at all times by an adult who is also riding.)
