Here are cue sheets and links to maps for many popular GEARs cycling club rides in the greater Eugene area.

The table below contains links to both cue sheets and maps for each ride. The “Ride No.” column is the link to each ride’s Cue Sheet. The Name column is a description of the destination and route. We’ve included Mileage, Grade (A-Easy, B-Harder, C-Hard), Map (the link to the Google Map), Food (BF-Bring Food, FS-Food Store, FR-Restaurant), and Direction to profile each ride.

The Map column contains links to custom Google maps for each ride. Just as you do at Google Maps, you
can use arrow keys to move the map, increase or decrease the zoom level, and the change the type of imagery.

Ride # 103e - Coburg Rd to Bowers Rd

Distance: 39 Miles Difficulty: A
Elevation Gain: 432' Max Grade 2.2%
Food: Available in Coburg
Start/Finish: Alton Baker Park

This is a flat and potentially fast ride, starting on the bike path north and winding through North Eugene neighborhoods before heading up into Coburg. You take Powerline north and it’s flat with (usually) a tailwind and a wide shoulder. Right on Bowers takes you east about 2 miles and then you head south on North Coburg Road. The traffic on N. Coburg can be a little busy (esp. during commute times), but cars up here usually respect cyclists. This is a good route for practicing pace line skills and is the route of the OBRA Twilight Time Trial (spring) race series. If you want a treat, you can stop in Coburg town for coffee or pizza and antique shopping on your way home!

Ride # 211a - Lawrence and Short Butler

Distance: 40 Miles Difficulty: C
Elevation Gain: 1138' Max Grade 8.1%
Food: Available in Alvadore
Start/Finish: Alton Baker Park

This ride takes you past the Fern Ridge Reservoir west of Eugene; it is largely flat as you head west out Clearlake road, there is no bike lane here and often lots of traffic, but there is a wide shoulder. On your right, before the reservoir, there is a store (rest stop opportunity). After the reservoir, you have a gradual ascent along Lawrence followed by a short and steep climb up Butler. After your fast descent down Butler, you make a right on Territorial (lots of traffic here, but you’re only on it for ¼ mile or so). Then you have a short section of Kirk road, which is a fun opportunity to race some rolling hills if you want to (very few cars on this section)! To get home, you take Clearlake east and wind your way back into town on the Fern Ridge bike path.
