Oregon’s premier cycling event, Cycle Oregon, has set its tour dates for 2013: The Week Ride will take place Sept. 7-14, and the Weekend Ride will be July 12-14.

The summer still seems like it’s a long way off — but if you’re hankering to participate in this year’s ride, either as a first-timer or a repeat rider, now is the time to decide. After all, last year’s Week Ride sold out in just 31 minutes, a new record after 2011’s 36-hour sellout.

Route details will be announced at the 2013 kickoff party starting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 5 at the Nike World Headquarters Tiger Woods Center. Doors open at 6 p.m. This event will also be streamed online at http://www.cycleoregon.com.

Online-only registration opens the next day, Wednesday, Feb. 6 at noon — so make sure you’re waiting with your finger on the mouse at 11:59, ready to click “submit.”

  1. how fast does it fill up?

  2. Within minutes or hours, if the last two years are any indication!

  3. Ironically, I discovered Cycle O in 2008 after Ride Around Washington filled up. If I recall, the 2008, 9 and 10 rides were open at least six weeks.

    It’s a well-run event and there lots to like about it.

  4. When is the online registration form available to fill out prior to noon on 2/6? Online address?

  5. There’s no form to fill out ahead of time; the registration link on the site will go live at noon, and everyone starts from there. Good luck!

  6. Can you sign up more than one person at once?

  7. Yes, but the event organizers recommend you only do one or two people – the registrations are not complete until the transaction is, so if you tried to sign up six people on one transaction the event might sell out before you finished and paid. Best to do singles or very small groups.
