Cycle Oregon and Social Media

Postby admin » Mon Jan 18, 2010 9:47 am

For 2010, Cycle Oregon is taking the plunge into the wonderful world of social media to provide you with new ways to connect with fellow riders and share the experience with friends and family. These include:

A Facebook Fan Page
A flickr photo group
A YouTube Channel
A MapMyRide Training Group

The Facebook Page will be used to provide news, training tips, information on some of the towns we’ll visit and links to a host of additional resources that will help you make the most of the season. It is also a great place for riders to connect and socialize.

The flickr group is a centralized place where everyone can share photos from this year’s ride or past rides. When you upload your pictures, please be sure to tag them by year so the pool is more searchable.

The Cycle Oregon YouTube channel has a few videos from previous years and our goal is to add to the collection after the weekend and week rides. If you’ve got video you’d like to share, please let us know and we’ll add it.

The MapMyRide training group lets you create training goals, log your progress, share maps of your favorite training routes and download maps or GPS files of rides that others have contributed. If you’re into data, use a GPS cycle computer, or want to track your rides using your smart phone, this site is for you. Those with a competitive streak will enjoy seeing how they stack up against their fellow riders on a week-by-week-basis. Others may find it useful to locate people with similar riding styles.

Please take some time to check these sites out and let us know what you think.
