Join the 5th annual challenge ride across the beautiful backroads of NW Oregon

This year’s ride will start and finish in Rainier, OR

registration is open!

Ready to ride in 2021?

 Well, we gave it a try in 2020 and we eventually had to say ok and pack it in.

2021 is giving us new hope, new opportunities, and a chance to get out and ride so guess what, registration is open for the 5th annual Columbia Century Challenge!

Ride the beautiful backroads of Columbia County while visiting the quaint towns that take you away from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

Pick your challenge of either our Century route (111 miles) or our Metric Century route (66 miles). Either one will take you on a journey that will test your strength and stamina.

Chosen twice as one of the top 5 rides by ORbike readers (2016 & 2018) this is one Century (metric) challenge you have to at least try once. (There is a reason we have a banner that says I survived the Columbia Century Challenge.)

You can expect full ride support from our start and finishing location (Rainier, OR) and on the road, rest stations that will give you time to relax, refuel and soak in the serene areas and fun and energetic staff and volunteers cheering you along the way.

We will continue to follow COVID Safety Guidelines which you can read here.

So click on the registration link above or visit our registration page for additional information. 

See you June12th!



Since 2016 Cycle Columbia County has worked hard to share with cycling enthusiasts all the challenging roads, trails, and  beauty that Columbia County has to offer. Our goal is to put Columbia County on the map as a prime recreational cycling destination and keep participants coming back for more! As a local nonprofit, we are reinvesting funds raised into our communities with additional cycling opportunities, bike repair stations, future trail improvements, bike racks, signage, safety education and more. By hosting the annual Columbia Century Challenge , it is one way to showcase all that our cities and towns have to offer.  To participate in our ride click on the register button below.


Columbia County features some great, bicycle-friendly back roads, from rolling paved roads through the old Oregon timberlands to farms,  alongside open fields and pastures and the majestic Columbia River.  Add charming rural towns, and you have the perfect backdrop for a fun and epic bike ride and an instant classic!
