Cycle Oregon

Cycle Oregon

Cycle Oregon is a week-long recreational bicycle ride held annually in different parts of the U.S. state of Oregon. It is also the name of a non-profit corporation established in 1991 to manage the event. More than a thousand riders participate every year and are supported by vans, meals and facilities.


The first Cycle Oregon took place in September 1988, covering 320 miles (515 kilometers) between the Oregon cities of Salem and Brookings. More than 1,000 cyclists participated.


Cycle Oregon currently limits itself to 2,000 participants. The Cycle Oregon route varies from year to year. In 2008, Cycle Oregon began in Elgin on September 6, and finished at Wallowa Lake on September 12, covering more than 420 miles (676 kilometers). Cycle Oregon is a supported ride; participants are provided with meals, camping facilities, shower and restroom facilities, and sag wagon support. The cost in 2008 was $825 per rider. Proceeds from Cycle Oregon are donated to charitable projects in the communities that host the event.
