About the Pioneer Century

The Pioneer Century has a 50-year heritage with the Portland Bicycling Club (formerly the Portland Wheelmen Touring Club). The Pioneer is named to reflect the history of the Champoeg, Canby, and Molalla areas. Rich farmland and timber brought the pioneers to this area and this same beauty draws cyclists today. The Pioneer Century offers great routes whether you seek a social ride or personal best.

A testimonial from one of our previous Pioneer riders:

“I finished the Sawtell metric century yesterday. I went for it, after all that complaining and procrastinating. Naw. Just wanted to tell you I did it, thanks for the support and communication about it all. I’m proud, tired, and sore, and looking forward to my next ride. PS: I sure was impressed with the organization of the ride and the great route markings. Take care. Maybe see you down the road.”
