Rider Services is the Cycle Oregon customer service department. You will find the Rider Services trailer in a visible location near the entrance to each overnight campsite. This is the place to ask questions, get help solving a problem, meet friends, leave a note on the message board or locate missing items at lost and found.

Bike Detail and Electronics Charging

We will designate a camping area adjacent to the medical tent with electrical hookups for those who use equipment such as a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) or sleep machine. The medical crew will carry your CPAP equipment from site to site; the cost for this service is $50 for the week. You will still be responsible for delivering your gear bag to the baggage truck. If you would like to use this service, please purchase it after you complete registration. This service is limited to the first 30 people who sign up.
The majestic mountains of Oregon seem mighty tall when you’re pedaling up them. 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 happy all week. Massage relieves muscle pain and tightness by stimulating circulation, clearing out the toxins that build up with 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.
Massage prices are $50 for a half hour and $90 for a full hour. We accept VISA, MasterCard, check or cash. Massage appointments begin filling in May and June, so call ahead to be sure you get the times you want. You can make appointments directly with your favorite therapist or sign up at the massage tent at each overnight site.
A little hint: When you’re choosing where to pop your tent for the night, you may want to set up away from the massage tent, as our music is loud and lively and we’re open until 11 p.m.
Visit the Cycle Oregon Massage Team’s Web site to view a list of the massage therapists who will be along on the ride and contact them to make an appointment.
