“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!
