Key Route 10 is a long north-south route thats stays fairly close to 97.
It stretches from Cooley Rd to China Hat Rd and winds through several neighborhoods.
The route is color coded to indicate what level of rider is recommended for each section. Green represents multi-use paths, protected infrastructure, or quiet residential streets. Blue is used for bike lanes, shared low-traffic commercial streets, or busier residential. Black represents areas that only the most advanced riders would feel comfortable on: busy streets without bike lanes, very difficult intersections, or Bend’s highest traffic volume areas – namely 3rd, Hwy 20 and Hwy 97. Black can also represent unbuilt sections.

City of Bend planned projects
Olney Go Project • 2024
Plans are not final, but mention an improved crossing at Olney & Wall. The city has a more detailed description. Construction should begin in 2024.
Most critical improvements
- This route uses Hwy 20, a very dangerous road. Protected infrastructure is needed along the route and at the intersections with Division and O.B. Riley.
- Dangerous intersections at Wall & Olney and Wall & Revere
- The section between Murphy to Pinebrook needs to be built
