Cycle Oregon


“The best way to sum up Cycle Oregon might be through the honorary title riders have bestowed upon it: The Best Bike Ride in America.That’s because Cycle Oregon delivers the best combination of scenery, challenge, amenities, camaraderie and philanthropy of any ride out there. A fun-loving mix of back-road riding and two-wheeled tent revival, our event moves from town to town with 2,000 or more riders enjoying generous hospitality and providing direct financial benefits to our host towns as well as cycling-related causes throughout Oregon. And it’s a new route, and a new experience, every year!”

I am proud to be part of the Cycle Oregon Team. Since 2008 I have had the opportunity to be their Physical Therapist. My role is to lead a stretching, and injury prevention class prior to the rides, and I work with the medical team offering injury consultations each day after the ride. I also respond to emails and calls from riders who have questions about resolving, or preventing injuries as they are training.

Try some of the exercises I commonly recommend to balance your cycling. You can also check out these videos I made to help you get on your best game to ride!

Cycle Oregon Testimonials

Megan is a miracle worker!!! My bike was improperly fitted, and I had two swollen, painful achilles tendons.  It was painful to even walk! Megan stayed late after her last appointment, and was kind enough to work me in.  Afterward, I was able to walk with no pain, and continue the CO ride. I would not have been able to complete the ride if not for Bodywise.

While waiting for my lucky turn, I watched her work on several people with a wide variety of injuries. She was caring, highly professional, giving personal attention, and great advice that kept many riders on the road. I cannot say enough about Megan!

I met Megan at the Cycle Oregon weekend ride in Salem. While attending one of her free workshops, I mentioned issues I was having with my SI joint. She said she could help me and was absolutely right. In the past year that I’ve been Megan’s client, I’ve made more progress than the previous six years seeing various physical therapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, and sports doctors. For the first time in years, I’ve been able to work-out on a consistent basis. She teaches me what I need to do to be strong, and pain free and works with me at my level. One thing that really makes me happy is that Megan is much younger than I am and hopefully won’t she retire for a long time.~

Megan checked out my sore knee, and completed an insightful, analysis of my condition.  She gave me appropriate exercises, and added a heel lift to my right shoe to correct a postural problem. By the end I felt better, and had a good understanding of the cause of my knee pain.  She is a stellar therapist!
