The Cycling Site has published a comprehensive list of items and things to do for your Cycle Oregon preparations.

While you may not want to take all the items listed - it is a safe bet that you will find some things on the list that you would have forgotten.

Suzi -
I wish I could help, but have no idea whatsoever. Suggest trying the CO office.
Penny Overdier lives in Colorado and posts messages on the Team Bag Balm forum. She probably knows of some. I am reluctant to post her address here. Send me a private message and I will look it up for you.

Colorado

Hiya SuziQ. We have a couple rides here in Colorado that might "peak" your interest. The 2 most popular are Ride The Rockies (June 15-21; www.ridetherockies.com) and Bicycle Tour of Colorado (June 22-28; www.bicycletourcolorado.com). As a 6 time veteran of RtR (and 3 CO's) I can tell you it is well supported (although the food at the rest stops isn't nearly as good as CO), and pretty challenging. Although the roads are usually no more than 6 or 7 % grade (much less than Aufderheide Pass), the air gets pretty thin at altitude. You've heard of Rocky Mountain High? I'm convinced it's oxygen deprivation (apologies John). This year's RtR route will be announced on Feb 3. It's limited to 2000 riders, selected by lottery. Twice that many apply, so it's a good idea to have a backup ride planned in case you don't get in. Cost is about $300, but you buy your own meals, so it works out about the same as CO. I haven't ridden the Bicycle Tour of Colorado, but I've heard good things, and this year's route covers some of our best scenery. Hope to see you, either here or there!

The tour Colorado looks good; like the option of indoor camping !
Suzi, go for it. Lottery style is iffy tho . I like first come, first serve better.

I've seen a few folks using those large plastic totes with handles as opposed to duffle bags. I can see the utility of keeping them outdoors. Question is, are they permitted in lieu of duffle bags? With stout handles, they may be easier to pack than a clumsy duffle.
