You can make appointments directly with your favorite therapist by contacting him or her directly or you can sign up at the massage area in McAlexander Fieldhouse when you arrive at Oregon State University. Massage prices are $50 for a half hour and $90 for a full hour. We accept VISA, MasterCard, check or cash. Check back here later in the spring for information on who will be along for the event.

Yoga instructor Jennifer Hanson will be along on the ride (she literally rides in addition to teaching) to teach two yoga classes Saturday and two on Sunday. Yoga is an excellent way to tame sore muscles, relax and stay flexible after a long day’s bicycle ride. Typically, we have two instructors – one leading the class from the front and another to roam the aisles and gently correct postures. Classes are free to all Cycle Oregon riders and mats are provided.
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, acupuncturists and bike-fitting experts. Sign up for these 15-minute slots at the medical tent.
Betsy Platt, L.Ac, MAcOM, of AcuOm will be available Friday, Saturday and Sunday to provide specialized acupuncture and Eastern medicine to alleviate muscle, bone and joint pains; increase stamina and boost energy; relieve arthritis; stop headaches; address respiratory problems; ease gastrointestinal disorders; and more.
The Bike Gallery’s team of bicycle technicians provides mechanical support on the course and at the overnight site. Technical support is available for emergency repairs of well-maintained equipment. It is your responsibility to make sure your bicycle is in good condition. Labor is usually free, compliments of Cycle Oregon and The Bike Gallery, while cyclists pay for all parts. Labor charges may apply if your bicycle does not meet pre-ride requirements.
For those who forget their helmets or want to buy a pair of bike shorts, The Bike Gallery will have a few cycling-related items for sale at the overnight site.
