All this week, BikePortland contributor Will Vanlue will be on the road with Cycle Oregon, volunteering as a radio operator on one of the ride’s SAG (“Support And Gear”) vans. While he’s out there, he’ll share a little bit of what he see along the road (provided he can find wi-fi!). — Jonathan

This year, Cycle Oregon’s 25th anniversary, riders started their adventure in Bly, Oregon, a small town of roughly 500 people that lies 44 miles east of Klamath Falls.

Every town along Cycle Oregon’s route has their own way of welcoming participants and Bly has been particularly creative with their decorations. All through town residents have placed decorated bicycles to celebrate and welcome visitors.

Have a look at Bly’s bicycles below…

I’ll be bringing you more from the road (assuming I have access to the internet) as Cycle Oregon continues. If you’re curious about a particular aspect of the ride, send me an email or let me know on Twitter and I’ll do my best to answer your questions.

    I loved the ET one and the olympic bike too. Though I am still curious about the “sock” bike, huh?

    I think the socks are supposed to represent Christmas stockings…
