Have you ever thought about riding to the Oregon Coast? Arriving to views of crashing waves, the pounding surf? Reach the Beach, a 22-years-strong organized ride, helps make that happen.
Reach the Beach, on May 19, is a fundraising ride for the American Lung Association in Oregon. It’s no wonder why the ride is so popular: with four course options, top-notch support and the best route to the coast, this ride is the most stunning way to tour the Oregon countryside. Reach the Beach is a decidedly luxurious ride with ample time to meander your way to the beach to watch the sun set behind Haystack Rock.
Overall, the four routes are surprisingly flat as they roll through wine country, along quiet rural roads, through small towns and past farmland. There are rest stops approximately every 15 miles with an array of tasty treats and two full lunch stops. Reach the Beach gets you away from the hustle and bustle of the city and the daily grind of everyday life. The organizers make it easy to relax in your saddle and enjoy the sights, sounds and scenery of this gorgeous landscape.
The finish line is in Pacific City with a sink-your-toes-in-the-sand party directly on the beach. Relax after a rewarding day of riding and listen to the waves crash on the shore as you enjoy the feast served up at the award-winning Pelican Pub.
Reach the Beach is limited to 3,000 participants and has sold out the past two years, so sign up early to secure your spot and receive the early bird discount.
