Salem Bicycle Club Monster Cookie Ride
The Monster Cookie Metric Century Bicycle Ride is the Salem Bicycle Club’s premier spring event and Oregon’s first bike event to start the cycling season. This will be the 43nd year of the ride. Both the Oregonian and OR Bike have ranked the Monster Cookie as the 3rd best supported ride in Oregon.
The ride starts at the State Capitol Mall Park in Salem and takes riders over the scenic backroads to historic Champoeg State Park and back to Salem passing Willamette Mission State Park. The route includes parts of the Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway and the proposed Salem bike boulevard neighborhoods.
There is an optional short route from the first rest stop and back to the Capitol Mall of 34 miles.
As always there will be tons of locally baked cookies and other fresh food items. You will have views of Willamette Valley farmlands, vineyards and Mount Hood in the distance. Your reward at the end is a Monster Cookie!
