About Us

Team Oregon was established in 1987 to develop the cycling abilities of its members and the sport of competitive cycling with a focus on the Pacific Northwest.

As we begin our thirtieth year, we continue to celebrate and support the cycling community by welcoming new members of all skill members, teaching proper racing skills, and helping our members achieve their cycling goals.

Team Oregon operates a team-oriented model to ensure that all riders have a place. Experienced riders share their knowledge with less experienced team members, enabling growth and skill development. In addition to racing, members are encouraged to be active in the club and assist in the club’s operations and projects. Team Oregon actively promotes races, training rides, training camps, community cycling events, and coaching.

The team’s mission is to enhance the sport of cycling in Oregon by organizing an accessible team with resources to help all members reach their goals within the sport.

We’d love to meet you! Feel free to Contact Us with any questions.
