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.

Get Your Body Ready – Just the basics here, but people often forget the basics!

Get Your Bike Ready – Get fitted, tune up and think about your tire selection. You can also rent a bike from Bike Gallery.

Pack for the Ride – You only get one bag, so make it count! We’ve made it easy with a printable packing list.

Week Day 6Getting to the Event and Back

Flying into Portland? – Where to stay, where to park, and where to catch the bus.

Take the Bus – You can ride with us one way or round trip from the Sheraton Airport Hotel. We’ll transport your bike too!

Taking a car? – You’ll need to buy a pass to park in our secure lot in Myrtle Creek. We will mail them to you in late August with specific directions. Passes will also be at the Gift Shop in camp if you forget.
