Monster Cookie Metric Century
The Monster Cookie Metric Century Bicycle Ride is the Salem Bicycle Club's premier spring event. The ride starts at the State Capitol Mall in Salem and takes riders over back roads to Champoeg State Park and back to Salem. The ride is open to bicyclists of all levels who agree to Share the Road with other users by riding safely, lawfully, and courteously. Each participant must wear a helmet that meets CPSC requirements.
The route is generally flat with a few short hills. The map of the route offers a preview of the ride. GPS users can download a GPS track of the route. Participants also will be able to use the Ride with GPS mobile app for navigation during the ride. Snacks, fruit, refreshments, and toilet facilities are available at a rest stop and at Champoeg State Park. The route closes at 4:00 p.m. Participants should pace themselves so that they can complete the ride by that time.
The first Monster Cookie Metric Century was held in 1977. To learn about that inaugural ride, read Monster Cookie Nostalgia.
