On May 12, 2012 Oregon Supported Living Program presents the “OSLP Pedal for People Metric Century Ride,” benefiting adults with developmental disabilities. It is a 100K bike ride (64 miles) on Lane and Linn County roads, beginning and ending at Armitage Park in Eugene, Oregon. The 100K route is supported with three rest stops with snacks, water and restrooms, mechanics at the start, stops and on the ride, and emergency assistance. You may choose the 60k (37 mile), Optional Route with one rest stop.
Oregon is known for scenic and diverse cycling routes, and this is no exception! This fun, challenging route begins with a ride through the morning mist of the McKenzie River and pastoral country views. After the first stop in Marcola it continues along the Mohawk River to a stop on the Calapooia River at McKercher Park, which includes a full service mechanic station. After passing Brownsville and the last stop, a warm welcome awaits at Armitage Park.
Register online and you will have the option of creating your own fundraising page for friends and families to sponsor your ride. The person raising the most dollars in donations above $500 wins a Surly Long Haul Trucker. Other prizes will include a Novara E.T.A. backpack from REI with surprises inside! The first 50 riders to register receive a free Novara water bottle.
