McMinnville Introductory Gravel Ride

Starting and ending right in downtown McMinnville, this quick jaunt takes you from the local bike shop and returns you to local beers. It is heavy on reward with a low-traffic, paved climb and fast gravel descents, taking you quickly into the scenic farmland for which Yamhill County is famous.

Ride Tips:

  • Safety: Limited shoulders and visibility on some country roads
  • Best Eats: Upon your return to McMinnville, park your bike near any of the dozens of restaurants, cafes, pubs, and tasting rooms, and reward yourself with world-class food and beverage
  • No-Gravel Option: If gravel isn’t your jam, do the out-and-back up Willis Road and be rewarded with a spine-tingling paved descent
