Fundraising Spotlight

Teresa Wilson Beiser was an energetic, athletic woman with an unconquerable spirit who was the picture of health and wholeness. On Tuesday November 10, 2009 Teresa’s estranged husband went on a shooting rampage at her place of work that ended life for the loving mother of two.

Though many friends were not aware, Teresa had been in an abusive marriage that ended in divorce, a reality for far too many people. Teresa dreamed of being a cyclists as strong as Lance Armstrong, and her friends dubbed her a Lancette. The Lancette Memorial Ride honors Teresa’s life while raising funds and awareness for domestic violence.



Portland Century Time!

In Oregon, century rides abound but only one truly celebrates the beauty and bounty of this special place we call Portland. The Portland Century, August 19, is a premier ride to honor this premier city, and starts and finishes in the heart of it.

Get the royal treatment on this lush ride with 40, 80 and 100 mile routes. The day starts out with locally roasted coffee and a fresh breakfast before you embark out on a gorgeous course that visits Portland’s favorite areas. Watch large ships loom in the distance at Kelley Point Park, the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia Rivers; take in the serene quiet of Smith and Bybee lakes, the largest urban wildlife wetland preserve – and that’s just within the first 15 miles of the course. Your riding only gets better from there on out.

Lunch and snacks are served on the course, and you’ll be treated to free Hot Lips pizza on the 80 and 100 mile courses. Dinner features a gourmet dinner of wild Keta salmon and teriyaki chicken prepared on site and served under the shady tree canopy of the Portland State University Gardens. Hopworks, Portland’s own award-winning organic craft brewery, is hosting the beer garden. All these incredible features of the Portland Century are included in your ride pass so don’t miss this opportunity to showcase your velo love of Portland.

HOT TIP: Beat the lines and attend the Pre-Ride Party at Hopworks (2944 SE Powell) on 8/18 from 2-4pm where you can check in and register for the ride.
