Make a Donation to Cycle Oregon Operations
Help Cycle Oregon continue operating during these uncertain times, and, in turn, support Oregon’s rural communities, which are being hit hard economically by the pandemic. You can make a one time donation in the amount of your choosing by clicking here.
Cycle Oregon is a nonprofit organization that relies solely on the income from these events to fulfill our mission to transform lives through cycling. Like many nonprofits, we are currently facing challenges unlike any we’ve ever felt before, and we are doing our best to preserve our organization. The entire Cycle Oregon staff and board of directors were looking forward to riding with you in the Painted Hills, the Willamette Valley, Corvallis and the Eastern Columbia River Gorge. We are very disappointed not to host these rides in 2020, and we are doing everything we can to be able to host rides and give back to rural Oregon for years to come. We applied for and received a federal Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan, which will allow us to continue to operate through June and process all cancellations. In July we are ending our Portland office lease and furloughing the team to 60% time. We will work remotely the rest of the year as we develop and implement a strategy to carry Cycle Oregon into 2021 and beyond.
Make a Donation to the Cycle Oregon Fund
It’s important to have a connection to the causes you support, and Cycle Oregon provides you with a direct connection to the good you do: The towns you ride through or stop at for a meal or stay in overnight-the towns where you meet the people who live there, because they’re the ones serving your meal or providing entertainment or manning the aid station-those are the towns that the Cycle Oregon Fund supports. Ride Cycle Oregon or make a donation and you’ll feel good and do good – at the same time.
We’re proud of our partnership with the Oregon Community Foundation, which enables riders to make a tax deductible contribution that helps provide support and funding for important projects and communities.
Invest in the Salmonberry Trail
The Salmonberry Trail is Cycle Oregon’s most ambitious project to date. Over the last four years we have donated $200,000 and have pledged to raise $1,000,000 in total for the Salmonberry Trail Project in a continuing effort to restore a Portland-to-coast adventure trail. Join us to support Cycle Oregon’s investment in the Salmonberry by making a gift today. Let’s give the Salmonberry a new beginning.
