A two day bike bash for rides of all levels
The two most fun-filled days of summer! Round up your crew and join us for amazing bike rides WEEKENDER is a two day bike bash featuring great route options for all rider levels, with music, fun and friends in camp each night.
2022 Date: July 22-24
2022 Location: TBA
Route Options: Short, medium, and long
Adventurous individuals from far and wide will gather with only two things on their minds: riding bikes and having fun. We’ve got them covered on both accounts. Riders choose from 3-4 ride routes ranging from mellow to seriously epic. They will venture past farmlands, orchards, and forests. After that, it’s back to camp for a frosty beverage, kicking back with the crew, and rocking out to live jams until the final encore.
The idea is to have a relaxing, enjoyable weekend of riding. The key to that? Take care of as many details as possible before the ride. In this section you’ll find pretty much everything you need to know to make your Cycle Oregon experience a great one.
Hot showers and any other amenities you might need will be provided at the overnight site. If you are camping, showers will be available on this event. Please remember to bring a towel and soap, as we do not provide towels or toiletries.
The majestic mountains of Oregon seem mighty tall when you’re pedaling up them and knowing that a massage awaits you can make that climb a lot easier.
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 strong all week. Massage relieves muscle pain and tightness by stimulating circulation, helping you recover after 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.
Yoga is an excellent way to tame sore muscles, relax and stay flexible after a long day’s bicycle ride. 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. This class is geared toward balancing areas of the body that are stressed and stretching muscles that are overworked when cycling long distances.
Megan is available 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 and bike-fitting experts.
Look for the Rider Services trailer in a visible location near the entrance into camp. Here you can ask questions, meet friends, leave a note on the message board, locate missing items at lost and found, or just stop by for a piece of candy.
Cycle Oregon Gift Shop
The Cycle Oregon Gift Shop is where you’ll shop for Cycle Oregon merchandise including cycling gear, t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, jewelry, sundries, and much more. You can also buy extra meal tickets there. Look for the Cycle Oregon Gift Shop near Rider Services.
Medical services will be available on the course, and at the overnight site. There is no charge for medical services on the course or at the site. If you require transport to or from a local medical facility, you will be financially responsible for transport and medical services there.
Food, Drink & Entertainment
Cycle Oregon will provide dinner at the overnight site on Friday and Saturday, and breakfast at the overnight site on Saturday and Sunday. Lunch will be served Saturday and Sunday, typically on the course for the longer routes and in camp for short and medium routes.
Beer & Wine Garden
Featuring a variety of local beers and wines from the area and throughout Oregon.
Cycle Oregon showcases some of Oregon’s most talented performers, from country rockers to clog dancers, blues divas to jazz greats. Performances are scheduled for Friday and Saturday afternoons and evenings on the Main Stage.
Cycle Oregon prides itself on providing a fully supported ride. Our goal is to help you finish each day’s ride. To that end, our course is complete with the following services and amenities.
Course support services are available only during the course hours. If you start before the course opens or are still riding after the course closes, there will be no support services available. All Cycle Oregon riders still on the course after closure will be offered a ride to camp. If you choose not to take the ride you will be on your own to get back to camp.
Food and Drink on the Course
Lunch is typically provided on the course each day for the longer route and in camp for the shorter routes. Lunch sites will be complete with food, beverages, restrooms, water, bike mechanics, gear drop and a medical attendant.
At least one, usually two, rest stops will be available along the route each day to provide water, beverages and nutritious, delicious snacks. Rest Stop signs alert riders when one is ahead. You can also see the location of each Rest Stop on the maps that will be inside the rider packet you receive when you check-in.
In addition to the Rest Stops, one or two water stops per day will provide water and restrooms.
There will be multiple SAG vehicles on the course each day. They are available to transport cyclists in cases of mechanical problems or medical injuries. They also have extra water, snacks, and sunscreen if needed. If at any time you need assistance, please signal a SAG van with a “thumbs down” signal. If you do get into a SAG vehicle, you may not be transported directly to camp. The SAG vehicles usually wait until they are full to go to camp.
Bike mechanics will provide support on the course, at rest stops and at lunch. They will make basic repairs in order to get you to an overnight campsite. Cyclists will incur any charges associated with parts or extensive repairs.
Motorcycle safety patrol volunteers drive the Cycle Oregon course each day. They are a great source of information and assistance and enhance the overall safety of the ride by interacting with riders who may pose a hazard by unlawful or unsafe riding.
