When we cancelled Cycle Oregon’s slate of 2020 events last spring our plan was to navigate the pandemic until it subsided and start 2021 with another full schedule. Fast forward to today and the uncertainty around hosting events remains. While we are hopeful that it will be safe to host an event in 2021, we are also very realistic that this may not happen.
Around this time each year we would be gathering for our Kickoff Party and the big route reveal but a reminder that we will not be hosting our annual winter get-together. We’ll miss seeing everyone, hearing the oohs and ahhs as the routes come to life, and we know you will miss being there, too. The good news is that you’ve already seen the amazing “Ride The Painted Hills” route. Start dreaming and pencil in a ‘Save the Date’ for Classic XXXII from September 11 – 18, 2021.
While our hopes are high, we cannot in good conscience take registrations for this or any event at this time. More will be known about vaccine rollout and the potential for gatherings as we get into late spring, at which point we will make a formal announcement about events and official registration details.
You have come to expect a high-level experience on Cycle Oregon events. If we cannot deliver that experience to you while efficiently complying with all safety requirements, we will not hold any events in 2021. If we can, you will be the first to know when and where!
We thank you for your continued support of Cycle Oregon and our mission, and we look forward to the amazing experiences we will all share by bicycle in this wondrous state.
Together we ride,
