Cycle Oregon 2012 - Moore Park, Klamath Falls, Oregon
I either run or mountain bike through Moore Park and environs nearly every weekday. On Thursday I was surprised to see hundreds of tents set up preparing for the arrival of 2000 plus Cycle Oregon riders on Friday.
When I rode through on my Friday mountain bike there were even more tents and thousands of people.
What a transformation - I am sometimes the only person in the park. And what a blast - a week long supported bike tour of Oregon (different course every year, pretty much).
There was plenty of food, a beer garden, a big fireworks show over the lake, and live music.
One of our friends (a really fit middle aged person, btw), who didn't know that Cycle Oregon was in town, said yesterday, "There were a lot of really fit looking middle-aged people downtown and I was wondering what was going on."
I want to do it next year!
More photos coming.
