Cycle Oregon used to be pretty good about publishing ride data in the Cycle Oregonian on each trip but this seems to have fallen out of favor and have not seen this info available for several years .
I'd like to see some ride data about actual number of riders , male / female split / oldest and youngest , average age , numbers of riders in each age group by splits ( 20-30, 31-40 41-50
51-60 61-70 etc , which states and what countries were represented ,number of first timers categorized numbers of individuals that have say 1-4 , 5-10 11-14 15 -20 etc Cycle Oregons under their belt as well as any other interesting data from the ride . Just curious
I'm sure this info is readily culled from their data base .

Have seen them before but I will ask those in charge if they can provide some of that again. Average age of this years ride was 53. Ages ranged from 10 (not including the dog 4 1/2) to 84.

Check the follow up newsletters from the previous years. Some of the information you were asking about is listed in that location.
