Ride Guide Number One
There are a million little details that make every Cycle Oregon event unique. But let’s look at the big picture first. Packing, getting to the ride, where to stay in Portland, booking a massage – it’s all here in the first edition of the Ride Guide. If you’re new to Cycle Oregon, it’s a great investment of your time to go over these details. Even if you’re a veteran, peruse the guide as a reminder of the things you’ll need to make your journey a great one.
