The Best Bike Ride in America

Day 0 – September 6

You may have noticed that the dates for Cycle Oregon are September 6-13, but the Day 1 route is for September 7. That’s because of the often-overlooked Day 0. This is Saturday, the day that riders converge on the first overnight site in The Dalles. It’s the day to pick up your packets, re-acquaint with riders and Cycle O folks, get your tent routine down and maybe even go for a spin to loosen your legs. Dinner is served in the big tent, and there will be live entertainment on the stage along with ride announcements.
