Ride Logistics

The idea is to have a relaxing, enjoyable weekend of riding. The key to that? Take care of as many details as possible before the ride. In this section you’ll find pretty much everything you need to know to make your Cycle Oregon experience a great one.

  • Camp Services

    Showers

    Hot showers and any other amenities you might need will be provided at the overnight site. If you are camping, showers will be available on this event (generally in the campus Recreation Center). If you are staying in a dorm, showers will be down the hall or within the suite. Please remember to bring a towel and soap, as we do not provide towels or toiletries.

    Friday:  5–11 p.m.
    Saturday:  6–10 a.m., noon–11 p.m.
    Sunday:  6 a.m.–5 p.m.

    Massage

    The majestic mountains of Oregon seem mighty tall when you’re pedaling up them and knowing that a massage awaits you can make that climb a lot easier.

    On Saturday only, after a long day in the saddle, bring your tired legs down to the massage tent. Our therapists use a variety of Swedish, deep-tissue and sports massage styles to keep you riding strong all week. Massage relieves muscle pain and tightness by stimulating circulation, helping you recover after extreme exertion and stopping spasms before they stop you from riding. Massage can be tailored to your pressure preferences and to the areas where you need it most.

    Pre-booking is available for all rides. To pre-book appointments, please visit the Cycle Oregon Massage Team’s Web site, click on the ride that you would like to book an appointment for, choose a therapist and contact them directly.

    Massage rates are $100.00 for a 60-minute appointment and $145.00 for a 90-minute appointment. We accept all major cards or cash. A limited number of 30-minute appointments may be available the day of the ride. Come to the massage tent directly to inquire.

    Yoga

    Yoga instructor Jennifer Hanson will be along on the ride (she actually rides in addition to teaching) to teach two yoga classes Saturday. Yoga is an excellent way to tame sore muscles, relax and stay flexible after a long day’s bicycle ride. Classes are free to all Cycle Oregon riders and mats are provided.

    Physical Therapist

    Megan Moseley, PT, LMT, of Bodywise will teach a stretching and injury prevention class from 4-5 p.m. on Friday. This class is geared toward balancing areas of the body that are stressed and stretching muscles that are overworked when cycling long distances.

    On Saturday, Megan is available between 4 and 6 p.m. for free injury consultations including evaluation of your current complaint, education about the origin of your symptoms, instruction in stretches, exercises and self-care techniques, hands-on treatment, taping, bracing, insole adjustments and coordination with massage therapists and bike-fitting experts. Sign up for these 15-minute slots at the Bodywise tent, located near the medical tent.

    Bike Repair

    The Bike Gallery supplies a team of bicycle technicians who provide mechanical support on the route and in camp. Technical support is available for emergency repairs of well-maintained equipment. It is your responsibility to make sure your bicycle arrives in good condition. Labor is available at a discount. Any repairs performed along the route will be basic in nature and designed to get you to camp for the evening.

    Bike Rentals

    Are you flying in for the event or and prefer not to transport your bike? Bike Gallery offers rentals that makes it easy. Bicycle pick-up and return is right on on-site at the WEEKENDER overnight location. Sizes are limited so click here or call 503-281-9800 to book your reservation early.

    Rider Services

    Look for the Rider Services trailer in a visible location near the entrance into camp. Here you can ask questions, meet friends, leave a note on the message board, locate missing items at lost and found, or just stop by for a piece of candy.

    Cycle Oregon Gift Shop

    The Cycle Oregon Gift Shop is where you’ll shop for Cycle Oregon merchandise including cycling gear, t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, jewelry, sundries, and much more. You can also buy extra meal tickets there. Look for the Cycle Oregon Gift Shop near Rider Services.

    Medical Services

    Medical services will be available on the course, and at the overnight site. There is no charge for medical services on the course or at the site. If you require transport to or from a local medical facility, you will be financially responsible for transport and medical services there.

Best of all, it’s always followed by legendary Cycle Oregon entertainment.

  • Course Support

    Cycle Oregon prides itself on providing a fully supported ride. Our goal is to help you finish each day’s ride. To that end, our course is complete with the following services and amenities.

    Course Hours: 7 a.m.– 6 p.m. (Sunday 4 p.m.)

    Course support services are available only during the course hours. If you start before the course opens or are still riding after the course closes, there will be no support services available. All Cycle Oregon riders still on the course after 6 p.m. (4 p.m. on Sunday) will be offered a ride to camp. If you choose not to take the ride you will be on your own to get back to camp.

    Food and Drink on the Course

    Lunch

    Lunch is provided on the course each day for the long route only. Lunch sites will be complete with food, beverages, restrooms, water, bike mechanics, gear drop and a medical attendant. Lunch is open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

    Rest Stops

    At least one, usually two, rest stops will be available along the route each day to provide water, beverages and nutritious, delicious snacks. Rest Stop signs alert riders when one is ahead. You can also see the location of each Rest Stop on the maps that will be inside the rider packet you receive when you check-in. Rest Stops are generally open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    Water Stops

    In addition to the Rest Stops, one or two water stops per day will provide water and restrooms.

    Gear Drop

    Each day at the first rest stop or at lunch, you can drop off a limited amount of clothing to be taken back to the evening’s campsite. This service is for small items such as jackets, tights, leggings, gloves, etc. No half-eaten bananas, half-stuffed panniers or other oddities will be transported. Gear drop can be picked up near Rider Services, generally between 4 and 5 p.m.

    SAG Vans

    There will be multiple SAG vans on the course each day. They are available to transport cyclists in cases of mechanical problems or medical injuries. They also have extra water, snacks, and sunscreen if needed. If at any time you need assistance, please signal a SAG van with a “thumbs down” signal. If you do get into a SAG van, you may not be transported directly to camp. The SAG vans usually wait until they are full to go to camp.

    Bike Mechanics

    The Bike Gallery will provide mechanics on the course, at rest stops and at lunch. They will make basic repairs in order to get you to an overnight campsite. Cyclists will incur any charges associated with parts or extensive repairs.

    Ambulance Service

    MetroWest provides Advance Life Support ambulances that give around-the-clock medical support on the course and in camp. If you require medical attention on the course, you should notify a SAG van, ambulance or staff vehicle with the “thumbs down” signal.

    Motorcycle Patrol Officers

    Motorcycle Patrol Officers accompany Cycle Oregon each day. They provide a moving network of safety patrol and communications between the tour and the communities through which we ride. These officers have full authority to enforce the vehicle code of Oregon – which, of course, includes bikes.

    Safety Patrol

    Motorcycle safety patrol volunteers drive the Cycle Oregon course each day. They are a great source of information and assistance and enhance the overall safety of the ride by interacting with riders who may pose a hazard by unlawful or unsafe riding.
