A one-day celebration of women and bikes
Joyride is Cycle Oregon’s annual one-day celebration of women and bikes offering short, medium and long routes. We mingle with locals and wave to the livestock as we ride past hopyards, crop fields, vineyards, and orchards. And once we roll back into town, a delicious locally-sourced meal and live music will be waiting. All levels of cyclists are welcome – if you can push a pedal, you can party with us!
Sorry, fellas. This ride is for women, but we’d be happy to have you come and volunteer!
2022 Date: June 25
2022 Location: TBA
Route Options: Short, medium, long
We typically offer up short, medium and long routes for riders of all levels. For riders who wish, there are often options to take gravel roads as part of the medium and long routes.
Food, Drink & Entertainment
Joyride offers ample opportunities to sample some of the local fare being perfected throughout Oregon along with a collection of some of our favorite beer and wine from the area, all served up at the finish line.
The finish-line feast features a bounty of Oregon products.
The 2019 menu included:
- Draper Valley pasture raised chicken marinated and grilled on-site
- Thin sliced NW Natural beef brisket
- Local tamales and salsa from Vianney’s Tamales
- Whole grain roll with butter balls
- Roasted acorn squash wedges
- NW Classic Foods fresh pesto pasta salad with vegetables
- Salad Bar featuring a variety of local and organic fresh salad toppings
- Lauretta Jean’s Biscuit Bar with local strawberries from Diaz Farms, blueberries, Alpenrose whipped cream, Oregon jams and Martha’s honey
In addition to enjoying good food, you’ll hear great live entertainment. If you’re in the mood for self-care, there will be massage therapists, and physical therapists available for appointments.
Rider Services is the Cycle Oregon customer service department. This is the place to ask questions, get help solving a problem, meet friends, leave a note on the message board or locate missing items at lost and found.
The Cycle Oregon Gift Shop is where you’ll shop for Cycle Oregon merchandise including cycling gear, t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, jewelry and much more. Look for the Cycle Oregon Gift Shop in the big yellow trailer.
After a long day in the saddle, bring your tired legs down to the massage tent. Our therapists use a variety of Swedish, deep-tissue and sports massage styles to keep you riding strong. Massage relieves muscle pain and tightness by stimulating circulation, helping you recover after extreme exertion and stopping spasms before they stop you from riding. Massage can be tailored to your pressure preferences and to the areas where you need it most.
Megan Moseley, PT, LMT, of Bodywise Physical Therapy, will be leading us in a pre-ride stretch to get you ready for great day on the road.
After the ride, Bodywise therapists will be available for free injury consultations including a brief evaluation, hands-on treatments including myofascial release, graston, cupping, mobilization, kinesio-taping. Megan will educate you about the origin of your symptoms, instruct you in stretches, exercises, and self-care techniques to get you back on the road! Additionally, Megan will make recommendations for bike fit adjustments as needed.
