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.

Plans are not final, but mention an improved crossing at Olney & Wall. The city has a more detailed description. Construction should begin in 2024.

Our suggestions

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
