Community is at the heart of Cycle Oregon, and we are committed to doing our part to keep our cycling community and the communities that we visit during our events safe. During this challenging time, we want to provide you with an update on our decisions in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are monitoring the dynamic situation and will continue to follow the advice and guidance of federal and state officials and health agencies. Following the latest recommendations around group events from the Centers for Disease Control and Governor Kate Brown, we have made the difficult decision to postpone GRAVEL to October 9-11, 2020.
We hope everyone who has already registered, and those who were thinking about doing so, can still join us in Tygh Valley for an awesome weekend of gravel grinding in the eastern end of the Columbia River Gorge, where the high prairie meets White River Canyon and the foothills of Mount Hood.
For those already registered for GRAVEL: You are automatically registered for the October event. However, we understand you may need to cancel, and we’re making it simple and easy to do so. You have now through May 31 to request a 100% refund of your registration fees and additional services and products. (Processing fees paid at the time of registration are not included.) To do so, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and reference “GRAVEL cancellation.”
From June 1 onward, our cancellation policy for GRAVEL will revert to a standard schedule; please visit our Event Polices & FAQs page for details.
NOTE: At this time, all of our other rides—Joyride, WEEKENDER and Classic—are still scheduled as planned, and we will continue to follow the recommendations of the state and federal offices. We hope to get together to do what we all love: riding bikes, exploring Oregon’s beauty and supporting our rural communities.

We believe in the power of cycling and nature, and now more than ever, we need our bikes to get us outside so we can unplug, relax and mentally recharge. So (safely) practice your social distancing on two wheels!
