Cyclists of every age and level of experience are invited to come out to “Reach the Beach”, a FUN annual fundraiser for the American Lung Association in Oregon. The main event will be held on May 21st marking the 21st anniversary since its inception. Early registration for the event is ongoing from now until April 10th at a participation fee of $25. Beyond April 10th through April 30th, the cost will increase to $35, and after this period, registration will only be available online for $45 through May 15th. The maximum number of participants this year is 3000, so register now. The child registration fee is $30 and is available on the day of the event only, with the specification that no tandem riders are allowed. In keeping with the fact that the event is primarily a fundraising venture, each participant, with the exception of children, is required to raise at least $100 in donations, all proceeds going to the association. For more information about the various routes, their distances as well as other planned specifications such as rest stops, click here.
