Cycle Oregon Community of Giving 2023

2425 NE 50th Ave, Portland, OR 97213, USA



Let’s do something great together.

There is a synergistic exchange that happens among everyone involved with Cycle Oregon. Folks that ordinarily would never cross paths come together and support each other. It is about the collective, We.

We know that we are all connected in some way; and like a COG in a wheel, collectively we are able to accomplish something much larger than ourselves. We relish the diversity of rural and urban. We embrace the environment that surrounds us, find meaning in it, and work to make a difference. Whether it’s building a new friendship or building a new community center, the Cycle Oregon community is transformational at every level.

Building Connection and Community through Cycling. 

In 2023, we’re excited to announce the establishment of the Cycle Oregon Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable organization. The Cycle Oregon Foundation was founded on the premise that the simple act of bicycling can be an antidote for physical and mental isolation. Unfortunately many people do not know the basic steps needed to get on their bikes, have access to bikes, or feel welcome in the traditional cycling community.

We believe that everyone should be able to enjoy bicycling regardless of socioeconomic, geographic, or cultural background. With the proper programmatic support and resources, we believe everyone can experience the joyful sense of adventure when bicycling is a part of everyday life, creating a bridge for a stronger, healthier, and more inclusive society.
