"The Oregon Bicycle Racing Association (OBRA) is the official sanctioning body of bicycle racing in Oregon, Southwest Washington and parts of Northern California. We work with race promoters to put on world class events within the region. We sanction road, track, mountain bike, enduro, cyclocross and gran fondo events. OBRA provides the community and framework for successful events. We provide insurance, race equipment, competitions, calendars, training, judging, timing services, marketing, membership services and many other services to make bicycle racing safe, enjoyable and accessible. OBRA sanctions over 390 events and clinics throughout the year." In order for us to get all the necessary permits and insurance to run a safe & successful bicycle event, we use OBRA as our official sanctioning body.
You may register on Friday or Saturday at event but the fee will be $30 for OBRA members and $32 for non-OBRA members.
