The Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee of the City of Walla Walla worked with the City of Walla Walla GIS department to publish an amazing cycling map for riders interested in exploring Walla Walla and surrounding area, including parts of northeast Oregon, on two wheels.
We couldn’t have done it better! Seriously, we have no GIS skills, so this is pretty amazing. The Walla Walla Valley Bicycle Map depicts approximately 580 miles of road route options and an additional 35 miles of suggested area rides. They have even graphed the elevation change for all 12 of the identified routes.
In additional to some pretty fantastic rides, the map also shows riders points of interest, which turns a lovely day on the bike into a chance to tour some pretty special places in our valley.
Head west to Whitman Mission, or go on a grain elevator tour. Head east and ride up to Ski Bluewood, or follow Mill Creek to the state line. There are also a number of surrounding communities that would love to help you fuel up for the ride home. There are countless way to create your own adventure that best fits your interests and comfort level.
