Walla Walla Cycling & Mountain Biking
Pedal through Walla Walla
Beloved for the rural farm roads that meander through rolling wheat fields, Walla Walla is celebrated as Washington’s top road cycling destination. The nearby Blue Mountains offer experienced riders steep climbs and sharp turns to attack, while the flatlands and paved trails that run through Walla Walla’s historic neighborhoods and farmlands are perfect for when you just want to cruise.
This cyclist-friendly community has, well, a lot of cyclists. No need to worry about riding alone when in town; you’ll find plenty of company. Local cyclists are happy to show you routes, invite you on a ride, make dining suggestions, point out their favorite wineries and help you fix a flat. And they won’t stop talking about the great cycling here.
Walla Walla also hosts one of the top bike racing events in the state. The Tour of Walla Walla take place over three days and includes four different races to crown a General Classification winner across all rider classifications.
