This scenic, moderately challenging 100-mile, 86-mile, 64-mile, and 32-mile bike tour explores beautiful farmlands as you wind through the country roads of North Plains and work your way toward the paved Banks-Vernonia State Trail in Banks, which is rider-friendly to both road and mountain bikes.
All rides depart from Papa’s Pizza Parlor, located just north of the THPRD Howard Terpenning Recreation Complex in Beaverton. This is a fully supported ride with rest stops every 10-15 miles.

86 miles - After a hearty snack at Hill Top, continue to Anderson Park in the City of Vernonia at the north end of the 21-mile paved Banks – Vernonia trail for more refueling. Then return for your special ordered meal at Papa’s Pizza.
