Alpine Century is your opportunity to ride some of Oregon's wild and scenic beauty on premier NW cycling routes: Alsea Scenic Byway and Lobster Valley Road. You will be fully supported as you tackle this challenging and awesomely beautiful ride. Alpine Century features well-supplied rest stops and SAG support staffed by friendly local volunteers, HAM radio operators cover areas where cell coverage is weak, and a fresh gourmet lunch featuring locally grown produce awaits you at the end of the ride.

Check out this brief video of highlights.

The 50-mile loop (4000 ft. elevation gain and loss) covers the peaceful and beautiful Bellfountain Rd. and Alsea Scenic Byway, with three rest stops including the favorite at Alsea Falls. The 100-mile route (6000 ft elevation gain and loss) is your chance for a supported ride through the gorgeous and rarely seen Lobster Valley Road. At the Lobster Valley rest stop, choose between an out-and-back return through Lobster Valley or the Highway 34 figure-8 loop. 

For maps, GPS and elevation profiles for both of the routes, click here.

Your registration supports the low-cost pre-school, recycling center, teen programs, and other programs at Alpine Community Center.

What You Need

Helmet: Our team is doing everything to make this tour a safe and fun ride for you. You can help with proper head protection. Riders must wear an ANSI or Snell approved helmet while riding.

Clothes and Sunscreen: Bring your sunglasses and sun screen! Two water bottles are also advisable for a hot, August ride.

And just in case, tuck away a windbreaker, gloves and a rain jacket. After all this is Oregon!

Tubes and Tools: A fleet of SAG support will be patrolling to help you out of any minor jams you might encounter. But for simple flats, bring a patch kit, spare inner tube, and a frame pump. Stock your tool kit with everything you need to adjust spokes and brakes, and mend a chain.

Rules of the road will apply. Ride single file at all times.
