Riding Oregon 101

Just as Oregon’s early settlers relied on their horses, so we now have our bikes — sturdy, faithful companions that are ready and willing to accompany us on every one of our adventures around the state. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a lean, mean road warrior; a low-key city cruiser; a laid-back stump jumper; or an elbow-to-elbow cyclocrosser; Oregon has something awesome for you to do while perched on top of two wheels. Here’s a crash course (well, not a literal crash) in everything you need to know to get pedaling.

Road to the Pendleton Round-Up

The road from Portland to Pendleton is 200+ miles of rich landscapes and adventure. Award-winning photographer Susan Seubert made the trek for the world-famous Pendleton Round-Up, one of the largest rodeo celebrations in the world. Held during the first full week of September each year since 1910, the Round-Up attracts thousands of people to the city of Pendleton in Eastern Oregon, where cowboys, craftspeople and Native American culture still thrive.
