How big is the weekend ride?

Postby John A Campbell » Sat Feb 23, 2008 9:10 pm

I've ridden the week ride before and know what to expect. Is the weekend ride similar. Same number of people? Beer tent? All the other amenities of home.

Similar to week ride?

Pretty much the same IMHO, tent city, beer garden, live entertainment, great food and lots of support-- just feels like the shortest weekend of the year is all... They haven't had the rockin' sag wagons with bubble machines and music for a couple of years though.

Some of us call the weekend ride "Cycle Oregon Light." It's very much the same, but there are not so many riders. I think it's closer to 700, rather than 2000.

Current registration is in the 900 rider range. It is steadily growing.

Registration has grown to 1100 and climbing. Consideration is being done on placing a cap for this ride as well as the week ride.

Over 1350 signed up and still climbing. 1500 is the golden number they are looking for. Considering riding?

Almost full. If you're lucky, you can be one of the last 50 riders to get in before the waiting list begins.

If you haven't looked at CO main page lately, the Weekend Ride has filled and is now SOLD OUT.
