|Reach the Beach - Bicycle Ride to the Oregon Coast|
May 18th 2013
23rd Annual Reach the Beach Ride
The ride starts from four different locations: Portland (100 mi), Newberg (80 mi), Amity (55 mi) or Grand Ronde (28 mi). We provide superb organization, beautiful routes, medical and mechanical support on course, 8 lunch and snack stops and a magnificent beach party with a delicious, hearty feast. Reach the Beach is one of Oregon's premier cycling events.
This benefit ride for the American Lung Association is perfect as a personal challenge or to ride together with friends and family. Proceeds will help prevent and cure lung disease and promote lung health through education, advocacy and research.
To be a part of this great Oregon tradition, each rider pays a low registration fee and collects at least $75 in tax-deductible donations (by donating to yourself or by encouraging friends and family donate to your ride) by the start of the ride. Our online fundraising tools make it fun and easy to inspire coworkers, family and friends to support your ride.
