Boys and Girls Club Organize New Family-Friendly Event Ride

As some know, the Watermelon Ride never really took off and attained the popularity of the Monster Cookie and Peach of a Century Rides. This summer there's going to be a bigger and better ride!

Supported by the Salem Bicycle Club, other area clubs, Oregon Parks and Recreation, the Oregon Garden, and others, the Boys and Girls Club of Salem is working on the inaugural Cycle Challenge. It will fill the hole between the Monster and Peach, and more importantly, offers a full-family opportunity!
The Boys & Girls Clubs provide thousands of children with critical life changing support by providing nutritious meals, basic health services and youth development opportunities every day.

Join us for a spectacular ride through the Willamette Valley where your tour will take you through lush vineyards, the stunning Oregon Gardens and across the Willamette River on the quaint Wheatland Ferry. Choose from a 75 mile route, a 40 mile route or bring the kids for the family fun
ride through the park.

Take the challenge. Every mile, every dollar makes a difference in the life of a child.

Where: Willamette Mission State Park
When: Saturday, June 26, 2010
Three Routes:Family Fun Ride through the park, 40 Mile Route, 70 Mile Route

The secret sauce is the Family Fun Ride through the protected paths at Willamette Mission State Park. This will be a great opportunity for the whole family to get out and ride!

So Save the Date!

We'll have more as details get finalized.
