What is Reach the Beach?

Reach the Beach is known for being the best supported ride in the Northwest.

Reach the Beach Oregon is widely acknowledged as the official start of the Oregon cycling season! Four different routes as well as a Cycle Your Way option ensure that the event has something for everyone from experienced cyclists to those new to distance riding. Characterized by Oregon’s stunningly varied landscape, the in-person ride proceeds from rolling wine country fields, through tiny towns, to the pounding surf and soaring dunes of Cape Kiwanda where a finish line at the beach awaits. The waves crash on the shore as the sun sets behind Haystack Rock and you relax in Pacific City.

Cycle Your Way allows cyclists the flexibility to choose their route, pace, intensity, and who they ride with. This new option is customizable for families, advanced cyclists, and casual riders. Oregon is known for its beautiful wine country, stunning forests, and unforgettable beach views. Cycle Your Way for an adventure. There is a reason Oregon is the only state in the country with official Scenic Bikeways. We also have one of the most bike-friendly cities in the country with close to 400 miles of bikeways in Portland. We are so fortunate to have an abundance of amazing rides in our backyard. Strap on your helmet and Cycle Your Way.
