Petal Pedal Bike Ride in Oregon
 

Pedal for People

Imagine a huge sea of people pedaling for adults who’s developmental disabilities would make it difficult, if not impossible to pedal 100 km, or even 40. The Oregon Supported Living Program’s Pedal for People Metric Century Ride on May 10 is a benefit to support adults with developmental disabilities in the Eugene area.

Registration is only $50 if you register early and includes post-ride pizza and local craft-brewed beer, pretty much a must-have here post-ride treat here in Oregon. If you’re one of the first 100 to register, you’ll earn a free ride t-shirt.

To support this great cause, you can fundraise and earn prizes. The ride’s website has an online fundraising tool to help you bring in the big bucks to support adults with developmental disabilities.

Plenty of Route Options

Too early in the season to tackle a metric century? No problem on Pedal for People: you’ve got 4 route options to choose from: 40, 60 and 100 km plus the intense 100km Plus Challenge route for riders who want a little something extra. The 100K route includes three relaxing rest stops spread throughout the course. The new 100K Plus route is an epic challenge with stunning views and a rigorous hill-climb for expert riders who are ready to go the extra mile early in the season.

    Can anyone tell me what that bike is the guy is riding on that main picture? I’ve never seen anything like it.

  2. Linda C. says:

    Tennison – I do not know what kind of bike that is.

    I do think this is a very good ride idea. I can’t make it that weekend, but hopefully the turn out is very good for this charity.

    Its a custom made bike for the gentleman in the chair. This photo was taken during the p4p ride last May 2013, we rode the 60k and will be back for another round this year. Here’s a link to our fundraising page:

    I really like riding in the Eugene area, so I’m going to have to sign up for this race. The slideshow makes it look really fun.
