Community is at the heart of Cycle Oregon, and we are committed to doing our part to keep our cycling community and the communities that we visit during our events safe. We are in the midst of an unprecedented public health crisis, and we are actively monitoring the situation and statewide response to COVID-19. This page will be regularly updated.

GRAVEL postponed to October 9-11

Why is GRAVEL being postponed?

Community is at the heart of Cycle Oregon, and we are committed to doing our part to keep our cycling community and the communities that we visit during our events safe. We are following the CDC’s recommendation to postpone events with more than 50 people for the next two months. 

Will the event location and routes be the same as scheduled?

Yes, the only change is the date; all other details remain the same. And October is an equally beautiful time in the eastern Columbia River Gorge!

What if I can no longer attend GRAVEL due to the date change?

For those who registered for GRAVEL prior to March 17: You are automatically registered for the October event. However, we understand you may need to cancel, and we’re making it simple and easy to do so. You have until May 31 to request a 100% refund of your registration fees and additional services and products. (Processing fees paid at the time of registration are not included.) To do so, please email [email protected] and reference “GRAVEL cancellation.”

From June 1 onward, our cancellation policy for GRAVEL will revert to a standard schedule; please visit our Event Policies & FAQs page for details.

When will you decide if you’re postponing any other rides?

We are actively monitoring the national and statewide guidelines to COVID-19, and we will let our Cycle Oregon community know if there are any updates to our current schedule beyond the current postponement of GRAVEL. You can view the cancellation policy for all events HERE

At this time, all of our other rides—Joyride, WEEKENDER and Classic—are still scheduled as planned, and we will continue to follow the recommendations of the state and federal offices. We hope to get together to do what we all love: riding bikes, exploring Oregon’s beauty and supporting our rural communities.

Is it safe to ride outside?

Bicycling through this crisis presents a number of challenging questions. We address the basics of riding bicycles outside on our blog and will be updating as this rapidly developing situation continues.

I still have questions, who can I contact?
