Cycle Oregon
2011 Routes:
"Going Coastal" and "Cyclecentennial"
The 24th version of the Week Ride, with a “Going Coastal” theme, features six first-time host towns and nearly all first-time routes, and will include ride segments along the Oregon coast. Other than two routes that ended at the coast, Cycle Oregon has not included a coastal segment since 1994, and has only included rides along the coast three times in its history.

The Week Ride will start and end in Sutherlin. Along the way riders will experience a wide variety of Oregon’s terrain, from rolling pastures to the Coast Range, rocky ocean headlands and wine country. Besides Sutherlin, the route includes overnight stays in Cottage Grove, Reedsport, Bandon, Powers and Riddle.

Cycle Oregon was founded in 1987 to boost bicycle tourism and provide financial support for Oregon’s small rural communities. Each year the Cycle Oregon Fund supplies grants to support bicycling in Oregon as well as the communities through which it rides. The fund, with more than million in assets, typically donates more than 00,000 annually to projects around the state.

Cycle Oregon will be visiting Port Orford on September 14, 2011 from 7am to 4pm. There could be over 1,000 cyclists enjoying the sights of Port Orford and eating lunch at Battle Rock.

I have to say that I never imagined how very much I would experience here! The beauty of the forest's right down to the sea! The abundance of blackberries and blueberries, red raspberries there for the picking! Amazing. Then the beautiful sea and rocks and the sounds and smells on the ocean breeze. I walked my 2 Chihuahuas down to the surf at Battle Rock and we walked along the sand, visited the pier and had a cheese and crab sandwich with a Deschutes "Clear Pond" Pale Ale! I saw a whale at Depoe Bay and had a great visit there, but Port Orford; I took my dogs for a walk about 10pm. the moon was out and the ocean is not only seen, but the waves could clearly be heard from the lawn of the Seacrest motel where I stayed, what an experience to see and hear! The friendly people in the restaurants the Paradise Cafe, Port and Starboard, Grifts at the Pier and the hospitality by Lynn the Manager at Seacrest Motel: all stole my heart. I will, God willing, definitely be back!"
