Cycle Oregon

BikePortland is an official 2015 Cycle Oregon Media Partner

Since 1988, Cycle Oregon has brought together people who love riding bicycles and people who live in our state’s beautiful rural communities. More than just a ride, Cycle Oregon is a non-profit organization that has doled out millions in grant funds to many worthy projects and causes.

Over the course of this year we’ll bring you original stories, reports on bicycling’s impact around the state, coverage of the Cycle Oregon Weekend and Week rides, and more.

Our Cycle Oregon coverage dates back to 2006. Check out our past stories below.
