The Monster Cookie Metric Century Bicycle Ride is the Salem Bicycle Club's premier cycling event. The route takes riders over back roads from Salem/Keizer to Champoeg State Park and back. The route is generally flat with a few short hills and follows much of the Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway. A GPS version map of the 2021 Cookie route is here. Download a PDF version of the route here. Participants desiring a shorter ride can ride to the first rest stop and back for a 29-mile ride. A GPS version map of the shorter route is here. Snacks, fruit, refreshments, and toilet facilities are available at the rest stop and at Champoeg State Park.

In 2021, a Salem Bicycle Club led Mini-Cookie Ride (6.2 mile) from Keizer Rapid Park’s Big Toy playground was also offered. The route went through the Park and the adjacent West Keizer Neighborhood to Wallace House Park and back. A map of the mini route is here.
