Cycle Oregon is a non-profit organization and community of cyclists who love to ride and explore the vast and varied landscape of Oregon while helping to support rural Oregon communities.
Cycle Oregon’s offerings consist of three events with something for everyone, no matter the rider’s age or ability.
Joyride kicks off the 2017 season on June 10th with a one day, women’s-only event taking place at Stoller Family Estate vineyard in the Dundee Hills near Dayton OR. Joyride features short, medium and long routes suitable for all riders. Locally sourced food, tasty wine, great music, and fully stocked rest areas are all part of the experience.
Weekender (July 7-9) is a two day bike bash that’s great for groups of friends, families, or anyone who likes to ride! Starting in McMinnville, OR on the campus of Linfield College, this ride explores the great roads, farms, forests and hills southwest of town on day one and the beautiful wine country southeast of town on day two. WEEKENDER riders choose between three different length routes each day and then camp under the stars or crash in the dorms after a night of good food and rockin’ live music at the beer garden.
And finally, The Classic (September 9-16th). This year marks the 30th anniversary of Cycle Oregon’s signature ride, The Classic, and it’s going to be epic. The stunning route will cover 430 miles of Central Oregon’s majesty, taking in parts of the Cascade range, sparkling alpine lakes, wild and scenic rivers and some of Oregon’s Scenic Bikeways. The icing on the cake– Crater Lake, the Aufderheide and McKenzie pass get three iconic Oregon rides off the bucket list in one week. Riders spend their days passing through unforgettable landscapes and their nights enjoying the many amenities in camp – hot meals, hotter showers, smoothies, beer, wine, live music, great company and more.
